Emo At Heart Interivews Singer-Songwriter Janet Devlin

JD - Alone in woodsIrish Singer-songwriter Janet Devlin recently did an interview with Emo At Heart, where they discussed her debut album Running With Scissors, covering The Cure, and visiting New York City for the first time. You can read some of the interview below, to read the full interview make sure you had over to Emoatheart.com.

You released Running With Scissors last year in the UK after a successful PledgeMusic campaign — was it always in the plans to release it in the US?
Oh, gosh yeah, that’s why it kind of took longer because I wanted to get it right. I would say to me it was more important than the UK one, so that’s why it did take a little bit longer.

How did your relationship with OK! Good Records come about?
When it came up I looked into it and checked it out and it just seemed to make sense. So when that offer came in I was like, “Oh, this is great. I really like what they do; what they stand for”. It was kind of like a US version of what my UK label does, so it just felt right.

On Janet’s debut album Running With Scissors, you can find a cover of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love.” Here is what Janet had to say about covering The Cure’s hit:

A lot of people, myself included, tend to get a little touchy about covers of The Cure, but your rendition of “Friday I’m In Love” is really fantastic. Can you talk about why you chose to cover that song and the particular arrangement you used?
I was not gonna have a cover on the album, I was just gonna do all my own music, but then it was proposed to me by the producers. So we made a list and whittled it down and whittled it down and this song was on the top of the list. Obviously with the whole, “Do you cover The Cure?” thing being a bit risky because everyone loves The Cure, but that was my whole justification for doing it — because if everyone likes them… And we tried to put our own personal spin on it; we tried to make our own arrangement off that track — and not trying to rip them off and make people think that you’re just doing a cover of it, but to put your own spin on it and make it your own.

Although Janet’s visit stateside is a short one, she hopes to come back soon and hopefully even tour here eventually.

Is there anything else you’re hoping to do in New York before heading home?
Just soak it in. I’d like to try more of the cuisine. Just see as much of it as I can and experience as much of it as I can. I do like the coffee culture though — love, love caffeine.

Do you have any future tour plans? Either in Europe or here in the US?
I would love to either be a part of a tour or do a tour of the US; it just would be amazing. I’ll probably do some UK gigs, and maybe some European ones, but I really would love, love, love to tour the US.

Janet’s debut album Running With Scissors is now available for purchase on iTunesAmazon, Google Play and our webstore. The album is also streaming on Spotify and Bandcamp. Be sure to check out our exclusive Janet Devlin merchandise in our webstore.

Idolator Talks With Janet Devlin About Her US Debut

Janet Devlin's Interview with IdolatorIn anticipation of her US debut, Idolator interviewed Janet Devlin about Running With Scissors, out now via OK!Good Records, and some highlights of her career thus far.  When asked about the slightly gloomy tone of each song on the album, Janet had this to say:

Running With Scissors is a very beautiful album, but even on the more upbeat songs, there’s definitely a melancholy vein running through. Is that reflective of who you are?
JD: I don’t mean to be. For me, personally, I have a lot more adjectives for sad things than I do for positive things. It’s also a lot easier to write when I’m sad because I’m probably in my house, on my sofa, with my notebooks beside me.

Janet has covered many songs, even putting out an EP of cover songs named Duvet Daze, and was asked who she wanted to put their own spin on one of her songs.

Who would you love to cover one of your songs?
JD: There’s so many! I’d love to hear Ed Sheeran cover one of my songs. He’d own it though — he’d make me look bad. So maybe not Ed Sheeran. [Laughs]

Alex Hart Has Been Featured on WeCloseTonight.com

Alex Hart LiveAlex Hart recently did an interview with We Close Tonight, in which she discussed many topics ranging from who inspires her to what she hopes to achieve with her music. This interview gave readers and fans a greater look into who Alex Hart truly is.

Why did you start making music? Who were your first great inspirations?
I first started making music at the age of 7 when my grandfather gave me his mother’s Violin to play. I really wanted to learn the Flute but because I had braces at the time I thought I’d find it harder to play. I had great rhythm at school and loved to write poems and sing in front of my class mates. At that age I loved general pop music, The Spice Girls etc.. I then progressed to acoustic artists like KT Tunstall and Sheryl Crow and when I started secondary school a teacher introduced me to Doris Day which opened up another world completely for me. Not long after I discovered Stevie Wonder and Paul Simon and wow, the list goes on!

What made you decide to perform as a solo artist? Do you prefer being in complete control of your music?
I have been in bands all my life, personally I prefer being in a band but it’s always been easier for me to make a living on my own. It’s been great because I have learnt so much along the way already, I am in control of my music when I’m alone but I prefer the way my music sounds when I play with other people. I’ve been a solo artist for a few years now and it can be quite a lonely place. It’s a great opportunity to meet new people and has given me a lot more confidence in myself as a person.

Like many people, Alex Hart believes there is no rule book for the music industry, which ultimately makes it so hard for aspiring artists to be heard. Alex’s best advice is that promotion is so important to get your career moving. It is important to play as many shows as you possibly can to get your name out there.

What does music mean to you?
Music is everything to me. It always has been. We’ve had quite a relationship so far, sometimes its good and sometimes it’s really hard but I know that I’ve only got one chance to try and make a good and fun career doing what I love and what makes me happy. Even through the struggle sometimes I always push on and know that I’m so lucky to be doing something that I want to do with my life.

What are you hoping to achieve with your music?
I would just like to be successful, have a long lasting career in music. It doesn’t matter how big, I would just like to experience playing in lovely venues and sharing my music with others.

“Ive been massively inspired by the latest John Mayer album and I want mine to sound equally rootsy..”
