Janet Devlin Shares ‘The Making of..’ Video for New Single “I Lied to You”
The mini-documentary has Janet telling the story of her song “I Lied to You”, released in early December 2018, from first-draft to finished song. Beginning as a poem used to ease painful times when she was just 19, it wasn’t until a song writing session years later that the poem took shape into a song.
The track was recorded at Metropolis Studios London and mastered at Abbey Road. Combining Janet’s long term musicians like Richard “Roo” Walker (Acoustic Guitar), Michael Giverin (Mandolin) and Graeme Pleeth (Keys/Programming) with a 12 piece string orchestra, “I Lied to You” is a stunning display from the singer-songwriter as she delivered on her massive personal vision of the song.
In Janet’s words; “‘I Lied To You’ is quite simply an apology to the ones I love.”
Being unprepared and unrehearsed with the sheer intensity of the transition to the music industry, it was important for Janet to show a positive outlook, which she knew she owed to so many. However, for Janet the reality was very different. “Even on dark days, it’s relatively easy to deliberately misrepresent yourself on social media” says Janet.
