WRITER. FIGHTER. IGNITER. Matron Saint of Cats.
Highly influenced by the female singer-songwriters of the late 90s/early aughts, Janice Lagata is a prolific (and occasionally petty) singer-songwriter. She would describe her musical style as Hard Folk (is that a thing?) but you would probably just describe it as "Good. I like it. She's fun."
And she is fun. Depending on her mood, her sets contain everything from original love songs to covers and mashups, from political pop and spoken word to your future favorite showtunes. An engaging performer, whether she's backed by a full band or going it alone with her guitar, she has a knack for reading the room and always strives to leave it a little better, a little lighter and a little more thoughtful than she found it.
