Janet Martin
"Just Wakin' Up"

Just Wakin' Up

Sittin' on top of the world -
lookin down.
It's kind of neat up here
way up off of the ground.
I'm wondering what to do,
wondering what to do
about me and you.
Just wakin' up -
I open my eyes
to many things - I never saw
too many things I never see
Just wakin' up
I realize, the love in me.
-- Janet Martin

"A popular regional artist, singer/songwriter Janet Martin has released her debut, "Just Wakin' Up" (Black Diamond). This recording is a six-song EP. To her credit, Martin's debut leaves the listener wishing to hear more.
Beautifully recorded with well-defined tones and textures, Martin's voice and acoustic guitar are mixed to the front. She is joined by some of this region's best musicians."
-- Patrick McCarty, "Richmond Times-Dispatch"

"This CD, with the full band, is a very worthy treatment of her music and her voice. . . . This EP is strong in many respects. It is a superb mixing job, with crystal clear guitars tingling with that freshly strung metallic shiny sound. Janet's voice has been captured better than I have ever heard it, and the harmonies are outstanding, particulary on "Frozen Years."
-- Killer Montone, "Richmond Music Journal"

".... So you have an unstoppable combination of factors here, poised to go however far this can go. The music is sharply engineered, all parts crisp, the vocals poignant, Martin in person is a dazzlingly attractive and refreshingly blunt, honest and devoid of artifice. This CD's music and the story behind it is just simply romantic. You can't get any better than that."
-- Mariane Matera, "Richmond Music Journal"
