Based in Sydney, Australia, vocalist / pianist Janet Seidel is a seasoned live performer and has 18 CDs to her name. All recorded in Australia, the CDs cover some stylistic ground from easy listening, Lounge, cabaret and Jazz content. Many have been successfully licensed in other territories namely Japan, UK, Taiwan and Singapore to name a few. Janet would say she has been lucky - anyway good critiques have followed, and in the Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD 2006 (UK) she is even described as “Australia’s first lady of jazz singing”.
Carolyn McDowell wrote recently:
Peggy Lee wowed the crowd wherever she performed especially from the early 1940’s to the 70’s, recording right up until the early 90’s. Lee just loved ‘great songs’ no matter the source, and Janet Seidel certainly did her proud.
