Described as a “The voice of the new jazz culture with seemingly limitless expression” by Jazziz Magazine, the spirited and vivacious Janet Planet has been self-produced and managed for the majority of her 40-year career. Active in all aspects of the business, she is a performer, producer, teacher, voice-over talent, commercial singer and recording artist with over 25 recordings in her discography. She co-owns the Oshkosh-based Steel Moon Recording Studio. In 1995 she developed the independent record label, Stellar Records with her husband, Tom Washatka.
Her determination and creative output continue to take her around the world through her recordings and live performances. She has toured all over the U.S., Canada, Japan, Europe, South Africa, and Russia. Planet is a six-time WAMI award winner and, in 2014, she was inducted in to the WAMI Hall Of Fame.
Janet’s latest recording, “Under The Venus Moon” was considered for the GRAMMY in 2021.
“When it comes to understanding a lyric and the music behind it, Janet Planet 'gets it'. Her soulful, heartfelt readings, with perfectly in tune, pure voice 'from heaven' brings the music to us on a silver platter, and really hits home. Brilliant arrangements, with her wonderful jazz players, gives each song its own personality while maintaining the integrity and overall message of the music they play with magnificent interplay!” -- Gene Bertoncini, Jazz Guitarist
Janet will be joined by her long-time musical partner Tom Theabo (guitar), Mark Urness (bass) and Ryan Korb (percussion). The group brings their diverse musical experiences to the music they perform.
