Interview with Janna Pelle

Janna Pelle is the love child of Fiona Apple and Lady Gaga with the alter-ego of David Byrne.

Tell us about your music
It’s been described as female alt-pop with a wink. If Lady Gaga is ARTPOP, then I’m SMARTPOP.

What do you like most about your profession?
Connecting with people through my music – when I write something that speaks to someone else and they reach out to me to let me know.

What’s your favorite album from another artist?
This is a pretty impossible question to have just one answer to, but I’d have to say the live Stop Making Sense Talking Heads album. I could listen to that on repeat for ever. And I pretty much have been since I discovered it in 2012.

What song of yours are you most proud of?

Probably “Sleep Tonight” because I can’t believe I found a real harpsichord to make it possible.

What is the formula for success in the music industry?
There is no formula. But if you believe in what you’re doing and it shows, that’s a pretty key ingredient.
