I can tell you very little about Janileigh Cohen other than she’s a singer songwriter from Bolton, UK and I think she’s pretty magical. She recently contacted me and after hearing her sing ‘As a Child‘ I’d made my mind up to introduce her. Her influences are very much from the heyday of contemporary folk including such greats as John Martyn, Joni Mitchell, Jackson C Frank, Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. She has that ever so slight husky edge to her vocals that catch you on first listen and she’s a very talented songwriter as well as you can hear below.
What more can I possibly say other than I was completely blown away when I heard this and if she’s not a name you all know by this time next year then there’s no justice…I’ll let her voice do the rest:
Her debut EP ‘As A Child’ is available via Bandcamp.
