Contacting Janis

Janis tries to look at all her email, but due to the volume, usually cannot respond. Please do not ask her to comment on your work, send you an autograph or photo, referee your relationship, write music for your lyrics or lyrics for your music, do a show, listen to music files, read unsolicited lyrics or wash your dog. You will put us in the awkward position of ignoring your email before she sees it. Additionally, we do not accept advertising, paid or unpaid. Requests for money, or to promote your GoFundMe, Patreon, or other accounts on this website or Janis’ social media will be ignored.

If you want touring information please check the tour schedule. You can also join our sporadic email list, but your best bet is to check the tour schedule, which is updated regularly. You can also check Janis’ Facebook Page.
