JUNE 7: Janine Annice at NBT

Janine Annice is an escapist; art is her refuge, a means to process the world. London is not an easy city, but it’s well known as a place from which to derive a rich cultural experience. Musicians often emerge armed with an unmatched sincerity and depth; it is the birthplace of many a musical legend. Being a part of a scene where fresh sounds waft from basements of young revolutionaries is a rite of passage. The underground millennial zeitgeist? Hip-hop meets jazz.  Home for Janine is a place where nobody is afraid to be unique. Her exposure to London’s bubbling artistic melting pot – where music, fashion and art intersect – cultivated the fearlessness required to try new things on the stage.

 

 

Attending private jam sessions in East London warehouses with London’s finest next-gen musicians until the early morning hours and constantly living and breathing in the new has led to a certain open-mindedness that is rare, and a symbiosis between vocalist and band that is unusual, and at times, magical. Meeting the purist soul/ R&B background she grew up listening to in the bedroom and raising it with touches of those jazzy/ hip-hop influences that have become integral to her development in the city’s scene, she lends artistic touches to her improvisation that stem completely from personal experience, whether she is singing covers or original material. 

NO BLACK TIE: 17, Jalan Mesui, off Jalan Nagasari, KL. Admission: RM40. Concert menu available. Call 03-2142 3737 after 5pm or visit www.noblacktie.com.my for bookings.
