Jana is a singer songwriter and a multi-instrumentalist. In her native Slovakia she studied classical piano and flute, which later took her to Aix En Provence (France). Briefly she was a member of ‘Persona Grata’ – a band, that was invited to perform at ‘Progressive Nation at Sea 2014’ in Miami, organised by Mike Portnoy (Dream Theatre). But having always been a singer, this inner calling finally took over and she decided to move to the UK and write her own songs.
With a voice reminiscent of Joni Mitchell, Jana’s music draws from many influences – Sting, 70’s folk-rock greats, country, pop and classical... Catchy choruses mix with unexpected harmonies. Just when you think you know where the song will take you, Jana suddenly changes course.
Her debut single, 'Birdhouse', accompanied by music video with a hint of 70’s nostalgia received great reviews from music blogs like 'Music Musings and Such, Art Will Fall, Zap! Bang! Magazine...
Recorded by Luke Oldfield at Tilehouse Studios (originally built for Mike Oldfield). Jana teamed up with top musicians on London jazz scene. Her debut EP is called 'Lanterns' and is due to release on 6th September.
