Janie Plante is originally from Seabeck, Washington. “My husband’s job brought us from Minneapolis to San diego and I’m really happy that happened because I was already in a groove playing and singing quit often at different venues in the Minneapolis area. I always wondered what California life would be like, and I wondered what the music scene was like here…it’s been growing pains for me, and it’s different.”
Currently based in Santee, her debut CD Don’t Give Up was released in 2007.
