Veteran vocalist Janet Planet shares how to discover the vertical and melodic qualities that are accessible through speaking with expression and the tactile sensations that words provide in song.
Janet Planet is a vocalist with a lifetime of busy concert schedules that have taken her to performing arts centers, opera houses, colleges, universities, jazz festivals and jazz clubs across the USA. She loves words, and her interpretations are based not only on meaning, but also on the way words feel as they fall out of her mouth. She is fascinated by the vibrations of consonants and the nakedness of vowels…the envelope of a diphthong and the connection of words – one image at a time.
Beyond her successful performance schedule, she provides educational forums on vocal performance, runs a recording studio, and manages her own record label, Stellar Sound Productions.
