“As an artist who has always made her living using her voice, I recognize vocal talent in others. Janice Gerard is simply crazy good. There are singers and then there are artists who take you to the next level. Miss Gerard is an artist – infusing each song with not only her beautiful voice, but a soulfulness, spirit and playfulness that creates a whole world.
“To say Janice is a fabulous singer is not saying enough. Emotion, intensity, approach, intonation, dynamics, range, connection, communication – being a performer is so much more than carrying a tune. Miss Gerard has a natural instinct for knowing exactly what a song wants to say – and the voice to say it perfectly and effortlessly.
“Simply a rare and amazing talent!”
