Hello Janelia! Thank you for taking time to chat with us today. We heard you have new music coming out! Congratulations. Tell us more about it.

With the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic I chose not to let it get me down but rather to remain positive and release an inspiring song titled “Things Will Get Better”. I also wanted to be an instrument of service and inspire “Hope” with this song.

How long have you been working on your new music?

I wrote the song many years ago but I only started recording it in April since we have a home studio. I felt this song is so needed at this time and it took us about a week to record, mix and master the song.

Do you have one song you are most excited to release?

This new release is a single, however, from my latest album titled “Self-Affirmation Project”, “I Am Bold” is the song that stole my heart after it was completed. It was recorded with all live musical instruments with session musicians and I just love the way the recording as well as the music video was well executed.

How are you doing? What has this time of social distancing been like for you?

At first, I felt hopeless and discouraged and did not know how to press forward with achieving both my short term and long term goals. Then I remembered my mission as an artist to inspire and empower; so I chose not to let these challenging times get me down but rather live up to my mighty mission with another inspiring song.

Has this time given you more time to focus on music or do you find it more difficult?  

This season has truly given me more time to focus on my music and I am so glad I have this new single to show for it. 

What music are you listening to the most right now? Any particular artist?

I am listening to a lot of Afrobeats right now, various artists. It is so rhythmic and full of energy. There is now way you can stay discouraged listening to this type of music.

Tell us your favorite quarantine snack?

Fruits, fruits and more fruits. I have decided that I will not gain weight during the quarantine or be part of the quarantine-fifteen movement lol, so I stock up on loads of oranges, grapes, blueberries and other fruits and that is what my family and I are snacking on.  

Anything else you would like to share with our readers?

I really do hope they are inspired by my new song and I am currently offering it as a free download on my website at Janeliasoul.com

Thank you for your time!

My pleasure!
