With the EP, says Jana, You can hear my transition from being a singer/ songwriter to performing songs that have more of a band feeling.
Released in the fall of 2005, Janas full-length debut, Catching Flies with Vinegar, collects many songs already polished to brilliant sheen in her live shows, as well as tunes best loved by her fans.
Unable to find like-minded musicians to form a band, Jana honed her vocal chops at open mic nights in the city and performed solo with her guitar.
At that point, say says, my focus shifted away from acting and I got very serious about music.
With a critically lauded EP and hundreds of gigs under her studded leather belt, Jana has released her hotly anticipated debut album, Catching Flies With Vinegar (produced by renowned Ramones producer/co-songwriter Daniel Rey).
I only try to love them As any girl would do But at some point, I begin to hate them through and through Oh yeah, it's true Dating sucks Joe seemed nice A bit bizarre He cleaned my house And raked my yard Then maxed out all my credit cards Oh why? "He said, "My service charges for cleaning up."I got the bill when we broke up Oh why?
As Jana explains, she chose to work with producer Daniel Rey (Ramones, Misfits, Ronnie Spector) for very specific reasons.
Theres a strong sense of harmony and melody throughout my music, and I wanted that to be intact, but the recording also needed to capture my New York edge.
Trans Action Magazine said, Jana Peri is a rare talent based on vocal quality alone.
Add excellent materialand the result is spectacular, and the Santa Monica Mirror declared, On The La La Song, Peris British Invasion roots are showing and its a boisterous delight.
That time definitely marked an important turning point in my career.
