Jan was in the studio with Maribelle singing “Still Touching Me”, a haunting and beautiful song about those who have moved on and those of us who are remembering them with love. Co-written by Jan, Brianna Bogle and power producer Ted Hutt. We spent the day with Marty Rifkin, the amazing co-producer. Maribelle moved forward at least 6 months in her artist development with the skilled ears of Jan and Marty crafting the vocal comp.

He brought a cast of characters such as manager Rooster Hurd, Dawn Osbourne, and motivator Doctor B. There were also panels with Trevor Gale, Ashley Miller, Music Supervisor Maddie Madsen, Ted Cohen, Gregory Riggle, and Hunter Williams and Jody Whitesides .Jan taught about artist development on the speed dating panel. James Leach and his fabulous team put on quite a show teaching about royalities and internet money paths. Join us for the Narip Brunch August 28th at the Angel Diva Music Studios.

When did you know you wanted to be a performer?

I feel that performing is incidental to my singing. I have just always been a singer whether there’s an audience or not. And I enjoy singing what I write, so it became clear more recently that I ought to explore performing the songs I have written.

Who were you favorite performers growing up?

I always enjoyed watching all kinds of musicals and loving them, and music videos of Madonna and the Bangles and stuff.
