Janette King's Debut Album
The complexities of loss are a tough, often impossible thing to try and comprehend. Through the prism of house, alternative R&B and pop, the Caribbean-Canadian producer and artist, Janette King attempts to decipher some of these difficulties on her debut album, What We Lost, released via Hot Tramp Records. The album received acclaim from among others, Complex UK, Bandcamp Daily, Hypebeast, KEXP, & Consequence of Sound, while also charting North American radio and landing top Spotify & Apple playlists. King's debut album presents a wise-beyond-its-years maturity, arriving as something a little more experienced than the title "debut album" would normally suggest. It's a statement from Janette King that, in a similar way to contemporaries such as Victoria Monét and Snoh Aalegra, fuses deeply personal assessments of life with glass-half-full soundscapes, establishing King as one of Canada's surest new voices.
