    jaNiCKA did an outstanding job on the vocals for my song! I am so excited! It really elevated it to a new level. She added vocal effects that gave it new interest, depth, and dynamics. It gave me goosebumps when I heard it first! I feel like she heard what the song needed to sound like and was able to make it happen. She knows what she is doing and her work is of high quality. She was also prompt and responsive in communications. I am so grateful for her contribution! Highly Recommended!

    Janicka is an amazingly talented singer, song-writer, and ever evolving producer. Her style and vocal range knows no bounds. From Hip-Hop and Jazz, to Soul, RnB and even Pop, Janicka has shown an innate ability to command songs with her powerful voice. I’m ever impressed with her continued growth as an artist and am excited to hear any project she’s apart of!

    One of the most exciting vocal artists I’ve worked with! Had the pleasure of collaborating with Janicka on a couple of projects and she really demonstrates the versatility of the human voice as an instrument. If you want that timeless soulful vibe from on era decades gone by, or if you want a more modern and punchy sound, she’s got you! Janicka is a force to be reckoned with and I recommend her 110% and look forward to future collaborations :)

    Janicka and I have worked on a few projects together for television and film. Her willingness to stay open, creative, supportive, and original remains a constant. She puts not only her heart and mind into, but her soul. She is all about "the feels" and won't quit til she not only finds them, but delivers them. She makes you feel heard and connects effortlessly.
    Her vocals have a timeless flavor in tone and texture, while running the spectrum right up to current Pop and Hip Hop. She has a signature voice which when heard you not only immediately know it's her, you body feels it. A true gem.
