A keen music lover from the very beginning, she wrote her first song as a young girl at the tender age of six. She was also an enthusiastic part of musicals at schools, as well as choirs.

She released her debut album, Transparency, in 2013. This was a rich blend of both inspirational songs and love songs that was well received for its soulfulness. Critics noted how Janet’s music came straight from the heart and with purpose. Filled with spiritual lyrics, Transparency was an introspective album that allowed the sweetness and innocence of Janet’s voice to shine through.
