Charlena Russell is the type of person who will never be bored. Constantly creating and nurturing her imagination as well as others. Both a teacher and a musician, Charlena wants to live in a world with passion, music, drive and integrity.
Although she has released two acoustic albums, Charlena been writing and recording electronic songs since she was a teen. Charlena’s new music is made for headphones. Her first itunes released single Save U is full of “ear candy” effects that jump and dance from ear to ear, smooth and intense vocal layers, stunning piano and programmed beats as well as live drums played by Davide DiRenzio, bass by Mark McIntyre and production by Brian Alexanian.
Charlena is already recording her second electronic song with Brian and will release a small collection of songs as an EP down the road…she is currently performing live with her loop pedal.
Janice’s music has been called “quirky and passionate” (The Record) and has been praised for its rich poetic imagery and catchy upbeat melodies. Her band Janice Lee and the Free Radicals play uplifting uppity original songs for the people.
“Drown the Earth” is their debut album. It is a collection of songs inspired by struggle, and fuelled by an urgent drive to replace systems of oppression with communities of active care. The songs go from bluesy and groovy with a throwback feel, to folksy, heartfelt and anthemic. The title song “Drown the Earth” is a call for the oncoming climate apocalypse to rebalance the planet. So sing along on the people’s chorus, pump your fist and practice joy through all the struggle!
