Janis Ian at the Rubin Museum 9/19

WE LOVE JANIS IAN!

She is a music icon, a feminist pioneer, a bestselling author, a successful businesswoman and entrepreneur, a survivor, a multiple Grammy winner who has continuously evolved as a crusader and as a human being unafraid to reveal society’s and her own deepest truths.

Her concerts are intimate gatherings and celebrations. NOT TO BE MISSED!

WE LOVE THE RUBIN MUSEUM!

In her fifth decade of writing songs and performing, Janis Ian recently won her second Grammy Award.  After her Rubin Museum debut last year, she’s back by popular demand. Her 2013 Grammy (her second), presented at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony, was for Best Spoken Word Album for her audio book “Society’s Child” (Audible.com).

She began her mostly stellar, sometimes stormy, professional life at the age of 12 when she wrote her first song and was published by Broadside Magazine. That led to her first “real” show, at New York’s venerable Village Gate, where she shared a stage with Tom Paxton (with whom she recently toured the east coast of the U.S.), Lou Gossett Jr., Judy Collins, Phil Ochs, and a host of other singer songwriters. At 14, she wrote “Society’s Child”.  “At Seventeen” later became her trademark song and, along with the album on which it debuted, “Between the Lines,” it earned five Grammy nominations and wins including Best Pop Female Performance and Best Engineered Recording. The song has since joined “Society’s Child” as inductees in the Grammy Hall of Fame.

Music and lyrics are about life experiences and, as Janis’ life has been full and colorful, so have her songs as evidenced by her multiple awards, Grammy and Dove Award nominations and commendations. Her songs have been recorded by singers as diverse as Cher, John Mellencamp, Celine Dion, Hugh Masakela, Nana Mouskouri, Charlie Daniels and Roberta Flack.
