Down to Nothin
The product of a musical family, Ann-Janette discovered music at a very young age. In fact, she managed to write her first song at the age of eight (a feat that was not celebrated by her heavy-handed piano teacher). As a teen coming of age in a small midwestern city in Oklahoma, Ann-Janette soon found that music could indeed become the closest of friends. Later, as college and career pursuits became more demanding, Ann-Janette let a lot of distance grow between she and her life-long friend. It wasn't until the gift of an old forgotten Salvation Army piano that the two were finally reunited... and this time for good. Ann-Janette spent the next years writing and recording as life would allow. After three years, she released her first CD with the help of her brother, Down to Nothin'... a musical journey of exploration, hope and reality. She followed that effort with a live TV concert event which was distributed nationwide to PBS Stations in 2008. Brighter Day Ahead is a collection of fan favorites and new originals that display Ann-Janette's honesty and childlike hope. These traits along with her melodic sensibility have become the hallmark of her songwriting and performing. Ann-Janette is currently in the studio working on her 2009 release LoveTown.
