Janet Devlin’s Interview on Boxxtalk’s Litterbox Podcast

JD - Woods Black Coat smallSinger-songwriter Janet Devlin was recently featured on Boxxtalk’s Litterbox Podcast. Janet spoke with Zeena Koda about her debut album Running With Scissors, her experience on X-Factor UK, how she chose a different path after X-Factor, and much more. You can listen to the full podcast below. Janet’s interview begins at 40:23.

Janet came to fame after being on the X-Factor UK when she was only 16 years old. She says the scariest part about X-Factor was the instant fame that came with the show; going from a “normal” 16 year old to someone in the spotlight. Just a few years after X-Factor, Janet learned to cope with the attention and spotlight she gained from the show.

Instead of jumping at the first record deal that came about after X-Factor, Janet took a different path. Janet began a Pledge Music campaign to fund her first album, which was later then was redone to her exact liking. Running With Scissors was put together in a mere 6 weeks. Running With Scissors features some break up songs, as well as songs with deeper meanings than just a typical pop song.

Officially A Yuppie Reviews Janet Devlin’s NYC Showcase

JD- YuppieJanet Devlin recently performed an acoustic showcase in New York City on February 16th. Janet received a great review for her performance by Officially A Yuppie, a music website devoted to bringing you the latest of what is happening in music. “For her Big Apple debut, she played the tiny Red Lion to a packed house listening songs off her just released album, Running with Scissors, and with her covers of Lorde’s “Royals,” Elton John’s “Your Song,” and her show-stopping rendition of The Cure’s “Friday, I’m in Love,” it was enough to make Robert Smith himself crack a smile. She had the eyes and ears of everyone around her hanging on every word and this was just the beginning,” says Officially A Yuppie.

Officially A Yuppie not only attended the exclusive showcase but they also had a chance to sit down and chat with the Irish singer-songwriter. They talked about her first ever trip to New York, in which Janet stated “I got here and did all of the touristy stuff and I actually don’t think I have ever been so happy in my entire life. I can’t explain the absolute joy that was going through me.”

They also discussed Janet’s debut album Running With Scissors, and how her fans react to many of the songs of the album.

“There are certain songs that people have come up to me and burst into tears,” she said. The songs are her introduction and touches people through her words and their connections with them. Songs like “Lifeboat,” “Delicate,” “Whisky Lullabies,” are all themes everyone on this planet has faced, but she sums it up in a way that makes it inimitable. “There are a couple lessons you can learn from the songs,” she said. When making this record, Devlin also learned about herself, “I am more emotionally vulnerable than I ever thought I was.”

Fans can expect much more music from Janet; she has already written some new music about her experience in New York. “I really hope to build a fan base in the U.S. I would love to move here. I would love to live her. I would love work here.” When Officially A Yuppie asked Janet if she believed in the American Dream, she replied, “I just believe in dreams. If your dreams don’t scare you, they are not big enough. There is no bigger place to crack than the States. It is a scary dream, but if I didn’t have it then I got no bigger goals. So I have to make them that big.”

The Prelude Press Reviews Janet Devlin’s Debut Album “Running With Scissors”

jd- prelude pressIrish singer-songwriter Janet Devlin has recently released her debut album Running With Scissors, which has just been reviewed by The Prelude Press where they rated the album a 4 out of 5. “From folk and country to indie and pop, she has mastered this release, and the outcome is phenomenal,” says The Prelude Press. “Devlin is bound to have you smiling within the first few notes of “Creature Of The Night” and her unique sound will keep you captivated all the way to the end of the album’s final track, “Whisky Lullabies.” You can read some of the album review below, for the full review please visit thepreludepress.com

The first thing that really stands out about Running With Scissors is the warm and inviting tone of Devlin’s voice. On top of that, her amazing vocal range is perfectly showcased in her insane runs and by the time that the full band comes in on the first track, I want to get up and dance. “House Of Cards” is a perfect transition, as well. The second song is considerably more poppy than “Creature Of The Night,” but without sounding too sugar-coated. The balance between folk and pop in the first few songs on the album is flawless. Track after track, Devlin delivers catchy poppy melodies laced with folky songwriting that are impossible not to fall in love with.

Arguably the best thing about Running With Scissors is the way that Janet Devlin has managed to mesh multiple sounds together. While the majority of the album is very poppy and upbeat, it’s not without its slower folky songs as well. Even the pop tracks on the album have a little bit of a folk or country feel to them, and that’s what makes the sound so unique. Janet Devlin has managed to create a sound that suits her voice perfectly with Running With Scissors, making this album an absolute must-listen.

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.
