Jana Mashonee Sets New Album Release
New Moon Born showcases Jana's powerfully sensitive, soulful vocals performing eighteen tracks of musical adventure, from gentle R&B ballads to tear the roof off rhythmic instant classics. As one critic put it, "I could listen to her sing the phonebook." He won't have to - her songwriting is at once deeply personal yet universal with a melodic and lyric sense that belies her age. Produced by Stephan Galfas, internationally renowned for his work with artists like Cher, Meat Loaf, and Kool & the Gang, the album bears his signature sound, seamlessly blending contemporary R&B and urban with pop, world and Native American flavors.
Featured tracks on New Moon Born are a heart wrenching version of Sam Cooke's classic, "A Change is Gonna Come," and Jana's own "Solid Ground," her promise to be there when all seems lost.
Jana has performed to sold-out crowds in 49 of the 50 states as well as in Canada and Europe. Her Jana's Kids Foundation has helped thousands of Native American youth achieve their dreams through its programs and scholarships. Jana Mashonee will also release her first book, American Indian Story, in May. The book was co-written with 2010 Mom's Choice Award
