Janice B., eclectic soul singer, the first singer to sign to Stinkiface music, takes you on a journey between genres, spirit, love, humor, sadness, loss, and finding of one’s self. Her debut LP “My Life” begins with the sound that reminds me of what the RZA called a detuned piano. It’s the old school sound of her now deceased grandmother playing the piano, a memory, appropriately distorted as it as transmuted through time and space. The album is dedicated to the memory of this incredible woman who first introduced Janice B. to music performance. In the album you will hear soul, blues, gospel, reggae, jazz, rock and even hints of Portishead’s “Wandering Star”. Janice B. definitely shows she is “free to reach her destiny”.

Enter the songstress who is free enough to release 10 tracks to 10 producers and say “go with your heART.” This interview, done live during the sound check before Sahffi released “Expectations,” her most recent cd project, talks about the story behind the music, and focuses on such tracks and “Gravity” and “Ticktock Islands”. Her love of classical music and confession, “I feel… like I’m a vessel…” make you understand so much about this channeler of folk, rock, classical, and jazz blends. Sahffi is open and free in talking about her growth through tragedy, dealing with those who feel they know and love her through her music, and even her break-up from a long-term love. She is honest and private, humble and strong. Listen carefully to hear when she asks “How can I tell my story; how can I live this life if I didn’t notice?” Listen to hear who she enjoys listening to, listen to hear her………..She is beyond genre, beyond trends… beyond “Expectations”…………………..Sahffi.

What can we say about this wonderful, brilliant songstress? Music seems to permeate from her essence. She showed up at the interview vivid and alive recounting to us the details of a melody that came to her while she was driving. She is a healer–a registered nurse and a natural healer. She indeed has healing in her voice. She is fierce, strong and an expert in Capoeira. Seriously, she isn’t to be played with. A whole woman. Her soon to be released album is called “Destiny”. When you hear it, you’ll wonder how she combined jazz, soul, bossa nova, traditional capoeira songs and samba in that perfect way. You will want to take the trip with her. It was predestined.
