BIO

Janie was born in Paris and moved with her family to New York City at a young age. Music was very much a part of family life—mostly classical, jazz, show tunes and pop—and she felt the power of it, eventually studying piano and composing tunes of her own on a guitar given to her by her grandfather. She began performing after moving to San Francisco, and later started recording and collaborating musically with her husband, guitarist Angelo Ficara, when they moved back to New York City. They now live north of New York in an old farmhouse in the Hudson Valley.
