Janiva Magness "Original"

Following her multi award-winning songwriting debut on Alligators’ Stronger For It, now comes Magness’ eleventh recording, the new CD aptly titled ORIGINAL on Fathead Records, her own label. A collection of twelve Blues, Americana and Soul original songs. A record breaking eight are Co-writes for Magness, on what she feels is a collection of some of the most personal and empowering songs she has written.

ORIGINAL is Janiva’s true declaration of independence. “This was simply the most logical move for me as a writer and performer. A CD release of ALL original Blues Americana and Soul songs. It just had to be made, and in order to do so, it required me to be a fully independent Artist. Therefore the evolution onto my own label, Fathead Records made the best sense, period.”

Produced by and collaborated with Dave Darling, Magness, historically known as a musical interpreter, co-wrote eight remarkable, autobiographical songs for the album, including the poignant and melodic “Everything is Alright”, the riveting “When You Were My King” and the take-no-guff showstopper “I Need A Man”, and more. Of her songwriting, Magness says, “Writing songs for me is laying out more of my soul, thru the stories, for everyone to see and hopefully connect with. It’s much deeper level of vulnerability.

Magness, is among the premier Blues and R&B singers in the world today. Her voice possesses an earthy, raw honesty born from her life experience. Having released 10 albums thus far, Magness is a charismatic performer known for her electrifying live shows. A dynamic musical powerhouse, Janiva has received 22 Blues Music Award nominations to date, winning the coveted Blues Music Award for B.B. King Entertainer Of The Year (she is only the second woman to ever win this Award, Koko Taylor being the first). Additional wins include Contemporary Blues Female Artist Of The Year in 2006, 2007, 2009 and 2013, as well as Song of the Year for her original composition “I Won’t Cry”, co-written with her Producer Dave Darling (Glen Campbell, Dominique Pruitt, Brian Setzer, Stray Cats, Def Leopard, Motley Crew, Meredith Brooks, Dan Hicks, John Waite).
