Janina Jade is a Swedish rock artist, singer, songwriter. Her music and lyrics are honest, raw and real, just like Janina herself. Her main influences are 70’s Rolling Stones, early Guns N Roses, 70’s Alice Cooper and 70’s Kiss. Janina lyrics are deeply personal and often dark, which combined with the music and her vocals create a unique sound and atmosphere.

These tracks deal with subjects such as; living on the dark side of society, standing proud and strong being herself and keeping real in a world of fakes, inner demons and darkness of the soul, grief and loss and celebrating a life lived on her own terms with no compromises.
