- Lyrical Venus - 20100119 - LV Jan Smith

Jan SmithI'm pretty sure that almost every time I've seen Jan Smith play live, she makes me cry. In a cathartic, "there is a crack in everything, that's how the light gets in" sort of way. She is just so real and raw that the notes creep in to my heart and force it open. The poetry reminds me to breathe deep. Her voice floats, soars, hovers, cracks, and tumbles over words in ways I don't always expect, but have me hanging on to every syllable.

Needless to say, I was really excited to find out Jan is working on a new album due out this spring!  I was delighted to have Jan in the studio for a live performance on Lyrical Venus!  (on my birthday no less!)  Click here to read more about Jan on LyricalVenus.com.
