Janet Robbins Delivers 'Song of the Gypsy Tree'
(Glass Onyon) Described as "moody, laconic, enticing, sometimes baffling", Janet's music possesses a "dark beauty and symphonic grandeur." With ethereal ambient soundscapes intertwined with world music rhythms and hauntingly beautiful vocals, Janet's work continues in the path of her contemporaries Mike and Sally Oldfield, Kate Bush and Gilli Smyth.
"This is what you might listen to after you are awakened from cryo-sleep and find yourself adrift somewhere on Orion's belt," says Bill Binkelman of Wind and Wire about Janet's music.
A world traveler her compositions are as equally influenced by the imagery of ancient sacred sites in Turkey, England, Egypt or the mountains of upstate New York and Asheville to her new home in Northern, CA.
"For me, the album is about relationship of all kinds," Janet explains, "the struggles we create when we ignore our relatedness to one another, the animal kingdom, and to the environment, and the offerings of the natural and spirit world and the surrender that's needed."
