Summer, Janey: Along The Way

Janey Summer has been performing as a rock vocalist for several years, and has fronted a number of covers bands both in the UK and Australia. She has considerable experience of performing in many venues both as original artist and fronting her current covers band, Rock Godz. Over the last two years, she has developed her own material and built up a fan base as a solo performer and Along The Way marks her debut album. Whilst primarily a melodic rock album it takes elements form the classic rock acts of the 80's (such as Rainbow, Whitesnake and Meat Loaf) whilst offering a contemporary slant and also has a foothold in the some of the darker, female-fronted goth rock releases of recent times.

In terms of vocal power and ability Janey can be favourably compared with long-time Meat Loaf collaborator Patti Russo, having a similar dark and husky quality that proves effective on the likes of 'Flame' and the power ballad 'Stranded'. The immediate melody of 'Seeing You' is both upbeat and catchy and the album closes with arguably the strongest track in the form of moody rocker 'Sometimes' that has shades of Evanescence.

Janey can take real inspiration from releasing her own album of original material and at just eight songs it certainly leaves you wanting more. Hopefully there will be much more to come from her in the future and she clearly has the potential to evolve into a major talent on the melodic rock scene.
