Janet Gardner and Justin James are one of rock’s coolest couples. I have called Janet the “first lady of the 80’s” as she helped pave the way for so many female hard rockers who were influenced by her killer VIXEN days. Now she is releasing her second solo record that is a full on collaboration with her guitarist hubby (and killer musician in his own right) Justin James. Their chemistry on their new release YOUR PLACE IN THE SUN is magic. Familiar but fresh, heavy (the guitars are MONSTER) but heartfelt, metal and melodic, it is a breath of fresh air for those looking for a pure, true rock release this summer with amazing vocals and great production value. It’s everything you love about Janet’s past with a trip into her future. I chatted with them about working together as a couple, deciding to be a musical unit and why this was the record Janet was born to make. (And check out their performance of “Try” stripped down for the WDHA/Coors Light Studio too! I just love love J&J (as I call them) not only tremendous talents, but tremendous people…….Terrie Carr #rockfriendsarefamily
Check out their performance!
