About the Event
Norther Ireland singer-songwriter Janet Devlin grew up outside the village of Gortin in County Tyrone, the only girl and youngest of four in her family. She thrived on a diet of watching Kerrang! TV and taking regular bus rides to local record stores in nearby Omagh.
In 2011, she caught the public’s attention on Series 8 of The X Factor, where she consistently received the highest consecutive public vote out of all the contestants. Her quirky yet shy nature has won her a huge online following of fans that call themselves…The Devlinators, what else!
Janet’s debut album Running With Scissors was released in June last year reaching number one on the UK Indie Breakers chart. Janet went back to the studio to record a covers EP entitled ‘Duvet Daze’. It’s a small collection of some of her favourite artists and songs including tracks by 10cc and Ed Sheeran. Since then, she’s been back in the studio again recording more music and this November will see the release of a festive brother to ‘Duvet Daze’. The new EP ‘December Daze’.
Now at the tender age of twenty, Janet is busy writing for album number two and broadening her repertoire. Placing a strong emphasis on the emotion associated with each song, her maturity is speaking volumes on her latest material. With a rapidly expanding songbook Janet aims to be back in the studio in the New Year to start recording her new masterpiece ‘Holy Water’. Exciting times ahead!
