Take Bonnie Raitt, Shawn Colvin, Rosanne Cash and Lucinda Williams and put 'em in a blender, add a dash of Bruce Cockburn and Kevin Welch, serve in a salted glass, no straw. This may best describe singer/songwriter/guitarist Janis Carper whose clear, powerful vocals and aggressive guitar playing skillfully convey the messages of her well crafted songs, in styles ranging from country and swing to folk, rock and blues.

Winning songwriting awards at festivals including the famed Kerrville Folk Festival in Texas, Janis has also toured internationally in the off-broadway hit "Woody Guthrie's American Song." Her 1992 recording No Place to Land was chosen as one of the top 12 independent recordings by Nashville's The Performing Songwriter magazine. Peter, Paul & Mary have recently released "Of This World," co-written by Janis with Becca Christel and Tracy Spring . Aside from solo gigs, Janis currently enjoys playing guitar-driven original americana, rock & blues with her band The Alibis.
