Janet’s  songs  have  always  resonated  with  people,  for  one  simple  reason.  They’re pure.   They inspire. They lift. Janet is telling the stories that people have always wanted to hear.

If you ever  want  to test out your  self-control,  come to a Janet Whiteway show and see how  long it is before you start singing or dancing – you’ll probably wind up  doing  both.  This is the cream of musical performance, and when it’s paired up with her delightfully whimsical take on life, it makes for time well spent.

Like many Canadian artists at the time, Toronto was the place to be after graduation. Janet played piano, worked in musical theatre, founded and played with cover bands and wrote and performed original songs. Not a bad way to spend 20 years. In 2008 Janet figured it was the right time to focus on her own music, which brought ‘Pure Sunshine’ into existence. Working with James Paul at Toronto’s Rogue Studio allowed Janet to build further on the time, energy and passion she’d put into her music.

Taking her biggest step yet in 2017, Janet wrote and recorded ‘Love Is Hope’, her musical commentary on the politics and culture of our time. It’s a continuance of her ongoing education, from the American politics of the late 60’s to the Canadian politics of the 21st century. From some of the darkest days to what she hopes might be a brighter future. Her contribution to that future is her music, her passion and her stellar talent.
