Described as a “sultry vocalist with a vast repertoire of jazz, blues, and standards…with some Bob Dylan thrown in for good measure” by New York Magazine, the spirited and vivacious, Janet Planet has been self-produced and managed for the majority of her 35-year career.
Her determination and creative output continue to take her around the world through her recordings and live performances.
Spanning the globe with tours across the U.S., Canada, Japan, Russia, South Africa and Europe she leaves listeners assured that there is a soul in this “Planet”.
Active in all aspects of the business she is a performer, producer, teacher, recording artist, voice-over talent and commercial singer.
She co-owns Steel Moon Recording Studio and Stellar Records with husband, Tom Washatka. With over 24 recordings in her discography, the award-winning singer won an Emmy for her work on “A Child Believes”.
She is a 6-time WAMI award winner and in 2014 she became the second woman in 32 years to be inducted into the WAMI Hall Of Fame.
In 2017 Planet was acknowledged by the GRAMMY Foundation for her recording “Janet Planet – Just Like A Woman – The Music Of Bob Dylan”.
