Janet Berger launched her musical career in the early 1980s singing jazz standards at a local piano bar in Fort Collins, Colorado. She soon became a highly sought after vocalist in nightclub musical reviews, private events, radio commercial voice-overs, studio vocals and featured guest appearances with several area jazz combos. She wrote her first song (“Working Man’s Bar”) as a teenager working as a waitress in a local blue-collar bar and quickly established a regional reputation as a sharp narrative songwriter. “My primary influences have been Joni Mitchell, Cheryl Wheeler and Dan Fogelberg because of their gift for storytelling and lush lyrical imagery,” Berger says. “I think many of my songs are really more a form of therapy – exploring my own issues, observations and experiences behind the veil of songwriting.” Over the past three decades, Berger has continually stopped crowds cold from Walla Walla, Washington to Washington, D.C. with her deeply personal and highly insightful original material. She’s currently finishing her long awaited collection, Little Windows.
