Emerging singer-songwriter Janine and the Machine has released her debut EP, High Places.
Executived produced by Tricky Stewart, the EP consists of seven genre blending tracks that fuse R&B, hip-hop and pop into one.
Speaking on High Places, Janine said, “High Places is my introduction to the world! It’s a small glimpse into the crazy world of Janine The Machine! I executive produced it with Tricky Stewart and we did everything independently— no major label, no crazy budget, just a few dope people who believed in the art. It was a shit ton of work, but it was a lot of fun and totally worth it! I wrote or co-wrote every song, recorded all my own vocals and even helped direct my first video!”
Janine said she learned a lot from working with Tricky. “Tricky’s always pushing me to take risks and think outside of the box,” she said. “He’s been in the game for so long, accomplished so much, and still manages to remain humble — I think that’s really cool. He’s always encouraging me to push myself as an artist and stay true to who I am. He trusts my process and I trust his…that’s what makes our relationship so dope.”
