“Making music is more than enough for most people, making great, life-affirming music takes a whole, more refined set of skills, skills which Janeliasoul has more than her fair share of.”
Dave Franklin - Dancing About Architecture
Nigerian-American born singer/songwriter Janeliasoul developed her love of music while growing up in Nigeria. Learning traditional Yoruba folk songs led to her discovering other musical genres, such as, Soul and Jazz. Fast-forward to now and the Baltimore, Maryland resident's 7-piece band "Janeliasoul" is fusing those influences, along with pop and Afrobeat into one infectious sound.
Lyrically, she draws off of positive self-affirmations, something she practices in her own life, on a daily basis. After her video for "Love-Hate" reached more than 1 million viewers on YouTube, Janeliasoul released her debut EP, "Self Affirmation Project." She followed up with a couple of singles and her latest release is a collaboration project named “Bedroom Magician” featuring Femi Sanya. As the new single continues to gain momentum, the sky's the limit for this Nigerian Goddess.
