Janiva Magness is among the premier blues and R&B singers in the world today. She received the coveted 2009 Blues Music Award for B.B. King Entertainer of the Year (only the second woman to ever win this award, Koko Taylor being the first). She has received a total of seventeen Blues Music Award nominations, including one for 2012's Contemporary Blues Female Artist of the Year.
Stronger For It, produced by Dave Darling (Brian Setzer, Dan Hicks, John Waite), is Janiva's declaration of independence. Janiva sings her heart out on a set of great songs, digging deeper than ever on three originals and bringing new emotional insight to hand-picked gems by Tom Waits, Shelby Lynne, Grace Potter and more.
'One of the most fiery and original vocalists in contemporary blues and soul.... Thoughtful, inventive and almost unerringly on the money.' - MOJO
