Press Quotes

“Soul vocals for days…She’ll blow the doors off the place”
Darren Elder in DownEast Magazine

“Her voice is huge, and she wraps it around that song with the force of a tsunami. Said another way, it’s glorious. Her voice soars to heights only reached by rockets. At the end, I felt like Oliver with his soup bowl standing there saying, “More, please!”… It simply must be heard to be believed.”
Aimsel Ponti for Maine Today

“[Janaesound’s] voice is the kind that immediately instills hope with its ardor. It invites, even compels, the listener to stop what she’s doing and let the song wash over her. Said another way, Woodruff’s voice is sensational”
