\'Ever since I was a little girl, I\'ve wanted to be either Levi Stubbs or Joe Cocker,\' says Janet, when asked to describe her vocal influences. Her memorable songs, soulful delivery, and dramatic stage presence grab and hold an audience\'s attention from set\'s opening to close. With the release of Evening Shades Prevail, fans of her live performances can now take her music home with them. If you\'ve never experienced a Janet Bressler gig, after hearing this CD, you\'ll want to. Evening Shades Prevail displays a very distinct voice -- which is such a rarity in this day and age... Janet \'plays\' with her influences, \'it sounds like - \' but she still keeps the sound very much her own. The material is very strong, with solid, catchy hooks. The songs have that \'classic\' feel to them; almost like you grew up to them. The lyrics take the listener on a journey ... stories and thoughts... deep and insightful... The opening track is pure hook, and could easily be a crossover hit (rock, modern blues, or even country. The hooks keep coming all the way to the very last track... \'Great sound, great image, great frontwoman...\' Anthony Caroto, ORIGIVATION \'She\'ll scare the bejesus outa you... A. D.
