"She's earned the right to sing the blues."—Christian Science Monitor
Nominated for four Blues Music Awards in 2011 and the winner of the B.B. King Entertainer of the Year award in 2009, Janiva (JAN-iv-a) Magness has a new album, "Stronger for It." Take it from Bettye LaVette: "Hopefully, this recording will bring the rest of the world to Janiva, and then they'll know, like I know, that she's one of the 'real deals' out there." Janiva has a powerhouse low voice full of smoke and experience and wisdom. She's one of the hottest acts in the blues world right now, and her live shows are electrifying. Janiva Magness is going to make this summer night in Michigan even steamier!
