Janet Devlin – Duvet Daze
To keep the hungry “Devlinators” fed and answering the call to so many requests, Janet Devlin slipped back into the studio after the release of her debut album, Running With Scissors, to record a surprise covers EP entitled, Duvet Daze. The EP features a small collection of some of her favorite artists and songs including tracks by Ed Sheeran, Duran Duran and 10cc.
Originally released in early 2015 in the UK, OK!Good Records is finally bringing Duvet Daze to Janet’s North American fans with our November 27th, 2015 release. As a special bonus, we’re also including Janet’s acclaimed “Suantraí Meisciúil,” an alternative take of her fan-favorite, “Whisky Lullabies,” recorded entirely in the Irish Gaelic language.
“Being an independent artist enables me to have creativity and control over my work. As “Whisky Lullabies” is my favorite song from the album (Running With Scissors) I thought I’d put a different spin on it. I wanted to re-record the track in Gaelic; “Suantraí Meisciúil”, as I love the different vowels and sounds of the Irish language. With some help from Davy Spillane on the low whistle I was also able to add a more Celtic feel to the backing track. I’d like to continue to record in Gaelic whenever possible, but this was a challenge, as I’d not spoken the language in many years. My education started in Irish Schools – my playgroup and primary school were Irish speaking. I stopped at the age of seven due to the fact neither of my parents could speak the language and this made it difficult to do schoolwork at home. I felt that by doing the song in Gaelic it would be a nice homage to my younger years.”
