New York, NY (PRWEB) January 07, 2015
Flame haired Northern Irish singer-songwriter Janet Devlin introduces herself to North America with her debut album "Running With Scissors," which will be available in North America on February 10th, 2015 via OK!Good Records. The 10-track album is full of folk-driven pop songs and heart touching ballads, showcasing Janet’s unique and enchanting vocals, which first caught the public’s attention on Series 8 of The UK X Factor in 2011.
"Running With Scissors," which has already hit Number 1 on the Official UK Independent Album Charts, is mainly self-penned by Janet. It was recorded in a mere 6-weeks, and features co-writes with Newton Faulkner (“Creatures of The Night” and “Hide And Seek”) and Jack Savoretti (“Delicate”), alongside a surprising cover of The Cure’s “Friday I’m In Love”.
Influences ranging from Imogen Heap, Turin Brakes, Adele, Mumford & Sons, Avril Lavigne, Regina Spektor and Florence & The Machine can be heard within this well-produced album full of rolling percussion, lush harmonies, string sections and acoustic guitars. There’s even a hint of Jack Johnson thrown in there on the track “Lifeboat”, which features jaunty offbeat guitars. "Running With Scissors" is an album about growing up, becoming independent and dealing with a whole range of new emotions.
Influenced and inspired by bands such as Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers, Janet learned to play the guitar and write her own songs at a young age. She currently has over 350,000 active fans on social media who call themselves The Devlinators.
