  • Born and raised a Boston native with classical, opera, R&B and inspirational background, Janeé Evans was inspired by listening to various eras and genres of music. The eras and genres also include Motown, Neosoul, gospel , soft rock, house and many more. Her musical background began in the church and was further motivated through her studies at The Boston Conservatory of music (The Handel and Hayden Society) where she gained exposure to classical and opera music. She began discovering her ability as a songwriter through poetry at age 6. It was at this same age she learned to play piano which ventured her discovery to songwriting. She began recording music in 1999 and worked closely with a funk band as one of the leading ladies (E Water Band). Funk and soul are also elements of her embodiment. Her mentors include: Lena Horne, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Mahalia Jackson, Fred Hammond, Luciano Pavoratti, Missy Elliot, Pharrel Williams, Nina Simone, Janelle Monae, Chrisette Michelle, Alicia Keys, Lauryn Hill, Whitney Houston, Tribe Called Quest, Jill Scott, Amel Larrieaux and so many more! Her Focus is relaying a story or journey if you will on life, love, laughter, tears and mistakes but no regrets. As a writer she is speaking to you with lyrical wisdom, because she is a survivor of many things and her lyrics portray her journey.

    Collaborations include Patti LaBelle, James Taylor The Boston Symphony Orchestra and various local artists in Massachusetts area. She also has freelanced among a few Boston local bands after the E Water Band including The New England Dreamgirls and Nyte Check. She is hoping to work with almost any musician that would like to restore our generations through the music and lyrics. It is also her disposition to bring therapy to those who may relate to the music and heal so they may simply live.
