Januariez

The Januariez is a Seattle-based rock band that mixes punk, funk and blues to create an eclectic sound with the standout Little Rock-laced voice of vocalist, guitarist, and song-writer J-kNee, bassist Tony Rivera, and drummer Reno. The three passionate and long-time musicians came together in 2011 with a goal to deliver something real; a female-led rock band with meaning and depth.

Their debut album Authentic (Epochalyptic Media, 2012) is produced by Jack Endino and will be released on October 27, 2012. A collection of work with substance and meaning, Authentic has something to say. It’s a rock manifesto of personal evolution and resolution. “There is intention behind this album. Much of the lyrical themes and graphic imagery have roots in the Occult and Hermetic traditions, which I practice in my everyday life. The unifying element between all songs is conflict… The album title and title track is a mantra I used to balance the conflicts explored throughout the rest of the album,” explains vocalist and song-writer, J-kNee. “One tune may be upbeat and fun, while the next is slow, grimy and intense,” says Reno. Innocent Words Magazine describes them as “painting with an abstract of influences including 1970-80s punk, straightforward rock with down and dirty blues, The Januariez have made it work and work well…think T. Rex with a little Thin Lizzy and Veruca Salt fronted by Ani DiFranco.”

    Moments of Knowing

    There is a wisdom

    that exists

    sometimes

    I have a part of it

    I have

    Moments of knowing

    Something I don’t know

    How it goes away.

     

    I know it

    For a little while.

    Listen for it

    A little while.

     

    Because I think

    For a little while

    I have it all figured out

    And I stop thinking.

    There is a wisdom

    that exists

     

    because sometimes

    I have a part of it

    I have

    Moments of knowing

     

    Something

    I don’t know

    How it goes away.

    I know it

    For a little while.

    Listen for it

    A little while.

    Because I think

    For a little while

    I have it all

    figured out

    And I stop thinking,

    Thinking.
