HERE IS WHAT I WANT YOU TO KNOW. It is past hard to write a Blog post to you from the Rabbit Hole.

I have rehearsed those words a squillion times. The truth is sometimes I just want to quit. But that’s not a new thought for me. I have wanted to quite my entire life. It’s the ”hardwire”.

That kind of thinking has been my lifelong companion. I have allowed it to manifest itself in many ways. Between my own self imposed destructive tendencies… To making choices of people who might go ahead and just do it for me.

Janiva Magness Reflects On Her 2017 Grammy Nomination for Best Contemporary Blues Album



YEAH… So its 3:39 am in England and BOINK… I am wide awake. My first thoughts came… The power of a woman, the strength of love, the beauty of team work.

Yesterday as my husband and I flew over the pond, L.A. to London after another particularly stressful week the blessing of not being able to get online was a welcome break for the 10 1/2 hour window.

SO after Forty+ years in the business I decided…


Ok…This might sound silly but, I didn’t realize I had put out 12 records… until I had put out #12 and I got asked… HOW MANY is that…??? In HOW MANY YEARS???

I don’t know, 12 records sounds like a big deal to me… And it gave me pause…

Stay with me on this brief Post if you can…

Here we are in 2016 and man-o-man have things have changed dramatically for recording/touring artists like myself.

My new album “Love Wins Again” just became available today and I couldn’t be more excited!

The album’s title is a mantra to the concept of love as a physical, psychic and spiritual force that has the strength to conquer darkness, sorrow, and personal demons. I hope it means as much to you as it does to me!

If you order “Love Wins Again” now, you will receive a free ticket to a private online concert and live Q &

This Is What I Learned Today…


There is this thing… I always have and always will be a Daddy’s girl. Now to be accurate it is also true to say that there were more times than not, that I was terrified of my father. He was a tall, powerful, complex and complicated Southern charmer who grappled with his own inner demons. He died when I was just 16 which is definitely too young for any child to lose a parent.

Winds Of Change…


What a life! I know for certain I never imagined mine would be what it is today and that I’d be doing what I am doing. At times I feel the pressure of it all as almost crushing and other times when I steal a breath and glance over my shoulder, it is totally hilarious!
