Engelbert Humperdinck’s Exclusive Interview With Examiner.com

eh - fb photoMusic legend Engelbert Humperdinck recently spoke with Examiner.com, in which they discussed his upcoming performance at Morristown, New Jersey’s Mayo Performing Arts Center, Friday evening, April 17th. “I’ll be singing some of my standards, songs from my new album, as well as some new songs from other artists. It will be a lively evening, very entertaining, with a touch of humor,” says Humperdinck.

Humperdinck also spoke with Examiner about his first ever duets album, Engelbert Calling. The pair spoke about what it was like to record with music legend Gene Simmons, as well having the honor of having Cliff Richard on the album as well.

HUMPERDINCK: To my surprise, the great Gene Simmons from KISS came in to record with me. He was truly an exciting person to have in the studio, believe me. You know, I’m six-one, but he’s about three inches taller than me, just a giant of a man with a great sense of humor, and just brought a great deal of pizzazz to the recording.

EXAMINER: On the album you also have Cliff Richard, who must have been a major hero of yours, growing up in England.

HUMPERDINCK: Well yeah, the funny thing is, Cliff was a major star in the ’50s at the same time when Elvis came in. Cliff has probably had more number one hit singles than anyone else in the world. I used to be an opening act for Cliff and now all of these years later, he agreed to be on a duet with me. So that was quite a thrill for me. He still looks great. He’s like the Peter Pan of the industry.

Humperdinck also spoke about the unlikely musical pairing of himself and Jimi Hendrix. “I’ll tell you why that happened; they were just introducing Jimi to Europe. So, what they did was to put him on a bill with someone like me who was already well-known in England, to give him some publicity. Not that he needed it, because he was really already becoming a star in his own right,” say Humperdinck. Jimi Hendrix also performed with Humperdinck when Humperdinck’s guitar player did not show you. “He came up to me and said, “Don’t worry, man. I’ll play for you.” I mean to have Jimi Hendrix play for me.. I just wish that someone was there to record or film it.”

Pop Matters Reviews Janet Devlin’s ‘Running With Scissors’

JD - Woods Black Coat smallPop Matters has recently reviewed Janet Devlin‘s debut album Running With Scissors, in which they gave the album a 6 out of 10. Pop Matters gave a great and thorough review of the album, which you can read fully on PopMatters.com. “Janet Devlin gleefully confronts the outer reaches of self-identity and self-determination on Running With Scissors. She does it through such a wide-eyed panoramic lens that you can almost see the layers of naïveté being peeled away as her angular but polished tones glide across her 10-song sequence of lovelorn and fun loving folk pop,” says Pop Matters.

With a title like Running with Scissors, you’d expect the album to have a youthful vibe to it, somewhat rebellious but with a playful bent. Certainly, Running with Scissors leans heaviest on childhood tropes: the reliance on the age-old fear of the dark in “Creatures of the Night”; the references to card games in “House of Cards”; “Hide & Seek” and its denotations; the twinkling sound of a music box and the hushed singing in “Whisky Lullabies.”

What Running with Scissors really shows us, though, is that Janet Devlin has grown a lot since her 2011 appearance on Series 8 of The X-Factor. As she continues to navigate the lush instrumentation of strumming guitars and dramatic strings that adorn Running with Scissors, her voice and musical ambition can only be the better for it. And that will be a wonderful treat.

You can purchase Janet’s debut album Running With Scissors on our webstoreiTunesAmazon, Google Play and at music retailers nationwide. The album is also available for streaming on Spotify and Bandcamp. Check out our exclusive Janet Devlin merchandise in our webstore.

Janet Devlin’s Exclusive Interview With Cryptic Rock

cryptic rockSinger-songwriter Janet Devlin recently sat down with Cryptic Rock for an exclusive interview. Janet spoke with Cryptic Rock about her debut album Running With Scissors, her songwriting approach, plans for the future, and much more. You can read some of the interview below, make sure to visit CrypticRock.com to read the full interview.

CrypticRock.com - Your debut album Running With Scissors was recently released in June of 2014 in the UK and in North America on February 10th. The record ranked 1 on the UK Indie charts. What was the writing and recording process like for you on this album?

Janet Devlin - It was weird because I made an album and I did not like it, so I binned it. I made Running With Scissors in six weeks. It was very intense, but so worth it. Obviously I lived with these songs for so long, I took some of the old songs from the old record. The six weeks was intense focus and it brought the whole album back to life for me. There is one story I remember from the studio was with the song called “Things Lost in the Fire.” It is one of those emotional breakup songs I had written about my ex. It made me imagine my ex-boyfriend was actually there in the recording booth and I had to sing this song to him. A lot of what is in that song are things I actually never even told him. I learned that singing whenever you are about to cry is actually really difficult.

If you have ever wondered what Janet’s songwriting process is like? Here is what she says to say about her songwriting process. I carry around these leather-bound journals; they look like something out of Harry Potter to be honest (laughs). I write my life in them. I write my life in poetry form a lot of the time. I will just come to a songwriting session with these books, which are completely filled with poems. I will get someone to play me a couple of riffs, if something makes me feel something, I will say, “That reminds me of poem I have in my book.” That means the lyrics and the music will already marry together. I sit there and work on good melody, good structure, and boom a song is born.”

CrypticRock.com - You recently performed some dates in your homeland in 2014. Are there any plans for touring in North America in the future?

Janet Devlin - Yes, I am working on getting my working visa to come over to the USA and possibly do some tours. It would be an absolute dream come true.

You can purchase Janet’s debut album Running With Scissors now on our webstoreiTunesAmazon, Google Play and at music retailers nationwide. The album is also available for streaming onSpotify and Bandcamp. Check out our exclusive Janet Devlin merchandise in our webstore.
