This blog post is a bio feature representing the Alternative Rock Band JANANI  
 JANANI is an alternative rock band from Orlando, Florida. The band was formed by Janani Vaidyanathan and Erick Campos in January of 2011. In early 2014, JANANI released their very first extended play titled, Three Step System EP. The Three Step System EP was produced by Brett Hestla, former member of Creed. 

  
  The EP spawned moderate success for the band, most notably with their hit single, “Where Was I?”. Kat Coffin of Examiner.com wrote, “Songs don’t get much catchier than ‘Where Was I.’ JANANI’s spunky vocals are full of attitude as they cascade over a steady walking blues rhythm…” and “[Janani’s] strong voice takes lyrical delivery beyond heartfelt to a more character driven place conveying toughness, anger, bitterness, passion and a host of other feelings…”. 

  JANANI released their hit single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), in May of 2015. Shortly after it’s release, the single won the Akademia Award for Best Alternative Rock song. ExposedVocals.com wrote, “[Run (Pick Up The Gun)’s] killer chorus latches itself in your memory after the first listen. It’s a well-crafted song that acts as a wonderful homage to the classic rock sound but also just a good piece of songwriting in itself.” 

  
Their music has been heard on radio stations such as CKCU 93.1 FM in Ottawa, Canada, KISS 104.7 FM and Orlando’s own XL 106.7 FM. It has also been featured in DIRECTTV’s documentary, Gone Until December. JANANI’s latest single, Run (Pick Up The Gun), will be the theme song of the upcoming television series, Hit Women.

     

  From over two-hundred competing bands, JANANI was selected to compete in the top 8 for the Hard Rock Rising Orlando competition, where they performed in front of a panel of judges including Chris Kirkpatrick of NSYNC. Of over 70 acts in the Tampa Bay Acoustic Music Festival at the Hard Rock Cafe Tampa, JANANI walked away as one of five bands selected to be a Hard Rock Energy Ambassador.

  
  JANANI is currently number 1 on ReverbNation Alternative Orlando charts and collectively has over 36,000 fans spanning over 5 different social networks.

  
SHOUTOUT Straight from JANANI ~ Sending big love ❤️ to our Manager Ranelle Golden, all our fans, and of course FancyJ London, YOU ROCK!
Thank you, JANANI …..OH, by the way I am a major fan myself! ~FancyJ

Featured Artist *DJ Ross Tha Boss* 

FancyJ London©2015 (All Rights Reserved) This is a blog interview representing The Producer/DJ, Ross Tha Boss. 

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to DJ Ross Tha Boss! DJ Ross is a young lady with an extreme passion for beats! She mesmerizes you with her powerfully eclectic take on Electronic Dance Music. Upon speaking with her, I was instantly taken back by her creative vibe. I have never heard any club mixes quite like hers. DJ Ross mixes mother nature with drums, hard beats, and rhythmic blends that make you instantly feel as if you stepped into rainforest nightclub. Listen here to get an idea of what I mean. 

  

Her very unique style is definitely worth listening to. I am honored to be able to share our interview with you.  

FancyJ: “Hello Miss DJ, it is so nice to meet you!”
DJ Ross: “Thank you, I feel the same way about you!” 

FancyJ: “Could you tell our viewers a little about yourself?” 

DJ Ross: “Well, I am 22 years old and I am from Louisiana. 

FancyJ: “Wow, you look younger than you are, which is great when you get to be 40, you’ll look 25! So, tell me how did you become inspired to be a DJ of all things?” 

DJ Ross: “Lol, Thanks. My love for music started around my toddler years. Every time I heard a song on the radio, when I was in the car with my mom, she said I would always dance and try to sing the lyrics.”

FancyJ: “I did that a lot in my youth too, who know maybe that is what inspired me to become a singer as well?”

DJ Ross: “Maybe.” 

FancyJ: “Do you own any instruments, or did you take lessons as a child?”

DJ Ross: “I got my first guitar at the age of 9 then two years later, I got my first drum set just because I wanted one and thought they were cool. Playing drums became my natural talent without taking any lessons I managed to play quite well.” 

FancyJ: “Impressive, you could say you play it by ear so to speak!”

DJ Ross: “Ya, Lol!” 

FancyJ: “Can you tell me how you ended up going from guitar and drums to DJ’ing turntables?” 

  

DJ Ross: “Seven years later, I discovered my true passion in music, which became DJ’ing and I knew that This was my dream career. I discovered EDM (Electronic Dance Music) from watching youtube videos of DJ Pauly D from the Jersey Shore TV show, as I was searching for videos of Pauly, I found DJ Bl3nd which is a DJ that started out doing DJ sets in his room, dancing around with his chucky mask on and now he travels around the world to DJ for his fans. Since then, he has become my idol. Shortly after I started to pursue my career by investing in my first DJ system, it was very cheap and small. I spent all summer watching videos on how to DJ and teaching myself the basics. After I learned what I needed to know, I started to put my mixes out on soundcloud to share with my family, friends, and the world.”

FancyJ: “I must say that your dedication is admirable, most kids nowadays are not dedicated enough to stick to something and follow through.”

DJ Ross: “Thank you, I guess you have to really love what you want to do to stick to it!” 

FancyJ: “What age would you say that you mastered the art of DJ’ing? Do you feel it is now getting you closer to your dreams?”

DJ Ross: “By the age of 20 I began to master my DJ’ing skills, I decided to take my talent to another level by learning how to produce my own music. When I finally completed my first full song, I decided to post it on soundcloud and I continued to keep working harder to get better. Now, I am getting the recognition I’ve been waiting for all my life. I have gained thousands of followers on my social media sites and hope to continue to gain more. I have a huge passion for music and I am always thinking of what production I would like to do next! My dreams are coming true!” 

  
FancyJ: “Yes, they are! It was a pleasure to chat with you. Know that in me you always have a friend. I will continue to share your story and your music. I thank you for sharing with me. I wish you all the success in the world on your journey to the stars! Would you like to take a moment to send out a special message?”

DJ Ross: “Yes, Thank you FancyJ London for featuring me and listening to my music. I also want to thank every single person, whether you’re a family member, friend or a fan that has believed in me or is believing in me and my dreams. I hope you will continue to show your love and support, and I will continue to give you great music.

Featured Artist *Allante 

FancyJLondon ©2015 (All Rights Reserved) This Blog post is a Bio Feature representing: Allante Singer, Songwriter, and Rapper. 

“I believe we as artists must support our fellow talented wandering souls out there that also carry a dream! The best success comes when you unite, not divide!” -FancyJ 
I want to take a moment to properly introduce to all of you an extremely talented 17 year old artist with an incredible new approach for rap music. I was introduced to Allante by his brother who was extremely proud of Allante’s talents. I started to grow quite curious of this young artist and decided to write him to find out more. He was very upbeat, energetic, and eager to share his music with me. I listened to a track he sent me and instantly became amazed! I thought to myself this young man is going places. His message was captivating, his lyrics were like no other rapper I have ever heard, his passion shined through his music clearly painting a picture of what could be an amazing new rap era! I was stunned and delightfully surprised by this young man full of spirit, he is definitely worth listening to! 
So, without further a due I present, 

Allante:

 
 “I am a multi-talented artist, rapper, singer, and songwriter.

I was born in Detroit, Michigan and currently live in a small township named Redford. I constantly see Detroit rappers in my age group rapping about drugs, money, and hoes. They’re not making any type of positive change in the rap community. For myself on the other hand, I want to rap about my come up, my struggles, my failures, and my accomplishments. I want my messages in each of my songs to be heard. I want to show teens such as myself, that you should be proud of your talent and never be afraid to express yourself and try something new!”

  
“Music has always been a huge part of my life. 

I often find myself using music to help me get through tough situations. 

I owe a lot of my success to my Mother, because she’s always been there for me, 

and for that I am very grateful. 

My Father left my life at a very young age. I use to cope by using negativity in my song lyrics, but now I feel I have grown and developed a better outlook on my life.

In 7th grade I was often bullied, it became emotional, rapping stuff from my head helped me gain strength.”

  
“I started jotting down ideas and writing songs and rhymes in the beginning of 9th grade. I thought that was the best way to channel my pain, anger and disappointment rather than being destructive. I started to add something about my life that emotionally effected me in each and every song, because I was sure other people could relate to my struggle. Now I have made it to 12th grade, I pretty much mastered my talent, writing hits left and right. Now that I’m getting older, I feel like I am getting better and better. I strongly believe that I will hit a huge milestone before 21!”
“I want to thank everyone who has supported me along the way and those who continue to support my dream and of course the people who just came into my life, for example I am blessed to have an amazing brother that brought you FancyJ, to me. No support is too big or too small as long as it helps me during my journey!”
 “I am an unsigned artist that strongly wishes for a chance at proving myself in the music industry, I possess all the abilities, full determination, and complete dedication.

  
My dream is to one day change the bad reputation that most rappers have and bring out inspiring, real life, feel good messages through rap music.”
