Editorial Reviews

Review

"Her songs run the gamut of emotions from sorrow to joy. A master of the lowdown blues who is equally at ease surrounded by funk or soul sounds, Magness invigorates every song with a brutal honesty," -- Chicago Sun-Times

"Magness is a blues star," -- USA Today

"Magness sings superbly, with a scorching intensity." -- The Philadelphia Inquirer

"One of the most fiery and original vocalists in contemporary blues and soul...Thoughtful, inventive and almost unerringly on the money." -- MOJO

"a blues interpreter of the highest rank...punchy and tough...swaggering, incendiary vocal performances." -- Blues Revue

Product Description

2012 album from the Blues/Soul vocalist. Produced by Dave Darling (Brian Setzer, Meredith Brooks, Dan Hicks, John Waite), Stronger For It is Janiva's declaration of independence. Having recently come through an intensely difficult period in her life, Magness has found new strength in her music. On these performances, she lays her soul bare, singing of loss and recovery, pain and redemption, hurt and healing, looking back and moving forward. Recording Stronger For It was as cathartic for Magness as listening to it will be for her fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant singer May 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I hate to admit it but I had never heard of Janiva before listening to some tracks on Amazon.com and what I previewed was enough to want to hear more. I have not been disappointed - what a brilliant, soulful and magnetic voice she has. Do you want to listen to someone whose songs and lyrics you can connect with? Then buy this CD because you will not be disappointed. My friends who have heard her music playing are incredulous and ask "Who is that singing?!!" They are just as amazed as I am at her vocal range and passionate tone. Now I only wish she would come on down to Australia so that I could see and hear her live in concert!! Stronger for It

3.0 out of 5 stars Janiva Magness - Stronger For It (Alligator, 2012) February 19, 2013
By Dimitri
Format:Audio CD
Seasoned Blues singer, Janiva Magness' 2012 effort on Alligator, Stronger For It, is a mix of a Blues and Soul/Southern Soul and even gospel compositions engineered and produced by David Darling who is a featured guitarist on this work.

Collaboration of these two is probably the most amazing part of the album best demonstrated in original "I Won't Cry" and Blues rendition of Tom Waits' "Make It Rain", both brilliant. Further, emotional cover of Ike Turner's "You Got What You Wanted", deeply soulful rendition of Gladys Knight's "I Don't Want To Do Wrong", hypnotic "Dirty Water", and Ray Wylie Hubbard's gospel "Whoop And Holler" showcase Janiva Magness' powerful and heartfelt vocals which best fit the repertoire of the album... or vice versa.

Although touching traditional concerns like pain, hurt, and loneliness, overall impression from the work is it's optimistic which is best revealed in titles of the songs like "I Won't Cry", "I Don't Want To Do Wrong", "I'm Alive" and more generally in the title of an album, Stronger For It.

Solid soulful Blues.

Personnel: Janiva Magness (vocals); David Darling (guitar); Arlan Oscar (Hammond b-3 organ); Matt Teco (drums).

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Artist April 25, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have several of Janiva album, it amazing she isn't better known. I love the bluesy sounds and and her raspy voice almost a cross between Eta James and Joplin. This album is sung with deep feeling and emotion and Janiva puts her heart and soul into the music. Looking forward to her next release.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOLY CRAP!!!! AMAZING BLUES SINGER. January 27, 2014
Format:Audio CD
Best female blues singer I've heard in a LONG time! Great vocal range: think Huskier and rougher than Bonnie Raitt, Smoother than Janis Joplin, and with the soulfulness of Diane Schurr. I am NOT EXAGGERATING. Her band is tight and intense, with a great guitarist. Susan Tedeschi can't hold a candle to her. THIS IS A MUST HAVE.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerhouse!!! February 25, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
I first heard Janiva on a Blues Compilation CD. I had to find more music by this fabulous Blues singer. I now have ALL her CDs, with my personal favorite being her most recent release "Stronger For It" ... and cannot wait for the next!

Janiva is, in my opinion, THE BEST female blues artist performing today!! I initially "seriously" discovered the BLUES when I came upon a music video featuring B.B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Albert King, Etta James, Gladys Knight, et al. When I heard these wonderful Blues artists performing together, it felt as though lightening had struck me (in a good way). From that moment, I was mesmerized with the Blues and completely immersed myself. I dove in head first. Video. Audio. I just couldn't get enough. I was blown away!!! Yes, of course, I had heard B.B.'s classic "The Thrill Is Gone" previously. But I never truly listened to it ... I mean, really "listened" to it. As a classic rock fan (still am) ... the Blues sent me down a previously unexplored path. And I am so thrilled I did! I don't ever want to come back!

It was then, when listening to a Blues compilation of various artists, I heard Janiva Magness. WOW!!! I delved into her songs -- the music, her voice. You can literally 'feel' her passion, her pain, her intensity.

In researching Janiva, I learned she has endured more than her share of pain and tragedy, including the suicides of both her parents. This left her 'surviving' the ins and outs of a dozen different foster homes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fine blues! September 2, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
I particularly liked the songs that Janiva wrote. But the whole set really worked! The "tribute" to Tom Waits on "Make It Rain" was a cool idea.
