Invitation from the Heart
'The music in this project reflects an invitation to all of us to return to the heart. Within our hearts we have our being. And in our being we can truly experience this life in all of it's challenges and joys......May you honor your own growth experiences, and in the process hear the invitation from your heart.' What others have said: 'I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Janine, for the past 10 years. I truly believe that her passion in music, is prompted by her loving intent to take a troubled soul, to a place they did not know existed. The perfection, clarity and quality of her music, comes from her soul and is not superficial, as we listen to the new artists of today. I personally believe, after listening to her latest CD, 'Invitation From The Heart', that you will wholeheartedly agree with me.' -Julia D. Zukor-Bullock Music Director-Unity Church of Melbourne, FL Musician/Vocalist/Entertainer 'Your music touches my heart and nourishes my soul!' -John Wolf 'She has the voice of an angel. It transports you to a very important place for spiritual seekers. A joy and a pleasure!' -Maggie Rosche 'Your CD is beautiful. I couldn't wait to call you and tell you. My children even love it. It's beautiful. It makes me cry when I listen to it. When you sing it just touches a place in my heart that makes me cry. I love it.' -Marcia Grube Background Music has been important to Janine all her life. She plays piano, guitar, Native American flute, and various percussion instruments. Janine has taught piano and guitar lessons. She is a certified Kindermusik instructor for children from infancy to 7 years old. For the past 16 years she has served as a musician at a Unity church.

Janine has opened for workshops given by speakers such as Alan Cohen and Matthew Fox. Facilitating and participating in drumming and chanting circles is one of Janine's passions. She believes this is the greatest venue for everyone to get involved with music and tune into the heartbeat of the earth that ties the very core of us all together in spirit. She believes in the healing affects of drumming and singing when people come together in circle. Janine's music has led her to connect with those who were in the process of making a transition from the physical to nonphysical. Family members of those individuals have benefited from this music as they walked through this difficult process. Music and Meditation with Heavenly Voices is also available on cdbaby.com.
