You will no doubt remember Janet Devlin from series 11 of the X Factor which was way back in 2011. Janet’s debut album Running With Scissors was released in June 2014 reaching number one on the UK Indie Breakers chart. The 10-track debut is full of folk-driven pop songs and heart-touching ballads, which perfectly showcased her unique and enchanting vocals. The tracks are mostly authored by Janet and were recorded in a staggering 6 weeks.
Despite touring America to promote the album in 2015, we have not really heard too much of her since. According to her website she is busy working behind the scenes where she has been locked away with her lyric books and journals, which are overflowing with poems and commentaries. She’s also been travelling around the country to various studios for numerous collaborations with renowned writers. Songs are being penned for her new concept album Holy Water and recording is now in full flow – watch this space.
Janet seems to be someone who just loves singing songs for the fun of it. She often releases cover versions of songs on her YouTube Channel. This is her cover of Chris Isaak’s Wicked Game…
