Janet Devlin, the talented singer-songwriter hailing from Northern Ireland, has carved a niche for herself in the music industry with her soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics. Her highly emotional sound is formed by a fusion of traditional folk, country, indie and quirky pop. With a talent for penning deeply personal and introspective lyrics, she has created a body of work that resonates with listeners on a profound level. Her songs often explore themes of love, self-discovery, and resilience, showcasing her poetic prowess and emotional depth. She has written with writers such as Newton Faulkner, Jack Savoretti, Lauren Aquilina, Ben Earle and David Sneddon. She has also collaborated on tracks with Gareth Emery, Schiller, Leo Stannard and the bone fide music legend, Engelbert Humperdinck.


Born on November 12, 1994, in Gortin, County Tyrone, Janet gained widespread recognition through her appearance on the UK X Factor in 2011. Finishing in fifth place during the live finals, she captured the hearts of millions with her unique vocal style and emotive performances. She began releasing music shortly after and hasn’t looked back. Her first album, Running With Scissors, reached #1 on the Indie Breakers Chart and made the Top 50 of the Official UK Charts. Her cover of The Cure’s Friday I’m In Love has reached almost 20M plays on Spotify alone.

Janet’s second album Confessional was a brave and ambitious project, being released alongside her autobiography My Confessional. Together they offer an intimate look into a decade of the singer-songwriter’s life; from the years leading up to her appearance on the X Factor, to the present, as well as giving hope and support to those who struggle with the same sort of mental health issues Janet has faced. The release culminated in a headline UK tour in 2022 and the album hit the Billboard Top 100 in America. In addition to her live shows, Janet regularly performs online via Lounges.tv where she connects with her global audience while singing her original songs and covers.

More recently, Janet was the subject of a powerful documentary aired on BBC One entitled “Janet Devlin: Young, Female and Addicted”. During the programme she confronts her addiction to alcohol and meets other young women affected by problematic drinking. Janet regularly takes part in conversations around addiction and mental health, appearing on Virgin Media TV, taking part in live events, a special Addiction Roundtable with LADbible, being interviewed by ASCERT, and featuring in publications such as The Sunday Times, DIVA, Belfast Telegraph and The Metro. She regularly shares observations on life and love on her social platforms, none more so than TikTok. It’s here, that through her unflinching honesty, she has grown a community of almost 900k followers who connect with her straight-talking manner, sarcasm and openness.
