Band on Band: Janet Robin
Music audiences around the world have seen Janet Robinʼs incredible guitar work as a former touring member of Lindsey Buckinghamʼs Band (from Fleetwood Mac), Meredith Brooks, and Air Supply. In the August 2017 issue of Guitar Player Magazine she was named in the bonus list along side Lindsey, Jimmy Page, Ed Sheeran and more as one of
the “Top 50 Acoustic Guitar Players,” and in 2012, Guitar World Magazine named her one of the “Top 10 Female Guitar Players.” Her latest studio cd, “Take me as I am,” was produced by John Carter Cash (Johnny & Juneʼs son) and Chuck Turner, and was recorded at the legendary Cash Cabin Studios in Nashville. This is the 2nd cd that John Carter Cash produced for Janet. It is an eclectic mix of rock/blues and Americana, with a big emphasis on her amazing, acoustic and electric guitar skills.
She has performed with some of the best guitar players in the world- Tommy Emmanuel, Monte Montgomery, Peppino DʼAgostino, and more. she was also a former student (and only female student) of the legendary Randy Rhoads. In 2015, Janet coached academy award nominated, actress Jennifer Jason Leigh on guitar on location in Telluride and Los
Angeles for 2 months for a special scene in Quentin Tarantinoʼs film “The Hateful Eight.” She recently returned from a 34 date
European tour and has already began touring since the USA release of her new cd. In addition to her solo project, Janet formed
The String Revolution, comprised of 4 internationally acclaimed guitarists utilizing their guitars in very unique and unusual ways to
create a full “band” sound. Their new cd was mixed and mastered by Matt Hyde in his London studio, (known for his work on famed
guitarists Rodrigo y Gabriela). It was released in October of 2016.
While being a very busy touring artist, Janet also teaches private guitar sessions, produces other artists in her studio, does
many session dates, conducts workshops, and plays upwards of 150 dates a year around the globe.
Catch her live at Tavern at the End of the World on September 26th!
