Though, sadly, she won’t be joining us this year at NERFA. I wanted to take a minute today to direct you all to Janelle Loes web page. The Scottsdale, Arizona based singer is a finalist in a contest to perform on Jimmy Kimmel’s late night TV show. It’s a great opportunity for an excellent young singer/songwriter, and I believe she is quite deserving. I met Janelle at Song School a couple of years ago and was very impressed with her writing, her signature voice, her overall sensibility, and her gentle charisma. I hope you like her too. If you do, I would appreciate if you would visit the contest link featured on her site and try to help her chances.
