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

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Alligator Records is proud and pleased to announce the signing of blues, soul and R&B vocalist Janiva Magness. A 30-year veteran of the music scene, Magness has a soulful, husky voice and absolute command over her material. Winner of the 2006 and 2007 Blues Music Awards for Best Contemporary Female Artist Of The Year, Magness' steady ascension to the top of the blues world will undoubtedly continue its upward trajectory. 'When saucy blues singer Janiva Magness delivers a song, you're convinced. She blurs the lines between blues and soul, singing with elegance and authority.'--L.A. Times. Per Alligator president Bruce Iglauer, signing Magness was a natural move for the label.'I've been watching Janiva over the last few years and seeing her mature into a major artist.'


Magness never oversings or injects contrived emotion...she simply sings heartbreak, hunger and humor and lets that speak for itself -- No Depression

When superb powerhouse R&B singer Janiva Magness delivers a song, you're convinced. She blurs the lines between blues and soul -- Los Angeles Daily News

This is her best CD yet, every song is soooo goood! Janiva has a unique and beautiful voice, seems to get better with age. I highly recommend this CD for all blues lovers, and those who just love music. She is not female blues artist of year for nothing! Also a great performer, be sure to catch her show when she is in your area.

5.0 out of 5 stars AAA Rating - Absolutely Awesome Album! June 20, 2008
By Dennis
Format:Audio CD
No wonder Janiva has repeated as Female Blues Artist of the Year! From start to finish this album is absolutely incredible. Janiva pours her heart into every note and it is a moving experience to listen to. I recently saw Janiva with her terrific band at the Rythym Room in Phoenix. She is a great performer - very personable, totally positive, and so comfortable in her own skin. Not only is Janiva a great performer, but she is also a wonderful role model!

5.0 out of 5 stars She's got her voodoo, mojo, and hot legs working October 23, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This woman once again proves to the younger musicians and everyone else willing to listen: Age is just a number and experience counts for everything.

She pulls lyrics form some of the great including Annie Lennox! And holy mother og pete's christ can this woman sing! I saw her live and this album does a pretty nice job of pulling off her live sound. It is so raw and gritty like best Stax records were. Don't hesitate appreciate and buy this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Janiva is Awesome!!! October 5, 2008
By tpsjle
Format:Audio CD
My title came from the first words I heard from a subdued 53 year old female blues fan after I loaned her the CD. In fact, everyone that I have loaned this CD to has gone out and purchased more of her stuff. What better recommendation is there than that?

I was recently blessed with the opportunity to see Janiva in Kansas City at Knucklehead's Saloon. She and the band are an experience to not be missed. She has the most amazing voice. Her voice is beyond description.

Give yourself a gift and buy this CD. Don't even debate whether you should or not. BUY IT!!!

Heck buy them all, you won't be sorry..

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! What a knockout blues singer. July 30, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow! What a knockout blues singer, and this album is prime full of great blues--the instrumentals as well as the singer. Every selection is worth listening to, over and over again. Janiva Mangess is soulful, sultry and passionate, and the band(s) performances only enhance her incredible style. My favorite blues album so far, along with "Lightning in a Bottle".

5.0 out of 5 stars What a voice! April 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I first heard of Janiva Magness when the track "That's What Love Will Make You Do", was offered as a free download by Usually, you get what you pay for. Most free downloads aren't that good. But, from the opening notes, her rich, soulful voice was AWESOME!! The song was really upbeat and and fun to listen to. I wound up buying the mp3 download of the whole album and have not regretted it for a moment. You won't either. I've bought several others CD's of hers since then. Not a bad one in the bunch. Also, if you are lucky enough to catch one of her shows- DO IT!!I saw her live and it was incredible.

5.0 out of 5 stars No just Janiva January 23, 2014
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Ok ... we all know that she can sing. But the thing I have really come to appreciate about her music is that she, unlike many other singers, also lets her band shine through. So, what you get is not just a vocal performance, but a full band experience. Great voice + great band = great CD. Highly recommend!

5.0 out of 5 stars A unique voice in a world of ho-hum singers
Magness' voice is raspy, sensual and powerful. Everything a woman needs to sing the blues. REAL blues. Best track? "One Heartache Too Late".
