Over time, you can lose track of how you found a band. Especially when you see new bands every day. But when you’re lucky, one sticks out. Violet Janine has been a Renegade Radio favorite for quite some time. In fact, they are one of our most searched for and popular articles on this site.
Through the years I’ve kept track of this band and from time to time I find myself rewarded with a new song for my efforts. Something about their music just sets my soul at ease and lifts me up, all at the same time. Recently they took one of their songs and did a “redo” making it acoustic and performed live for a very luck set of VIPs.
I’d have sold someone elses mother to have been at that show. I would have had to in order to get to Sweden. All kidding aside, I’d have found a way to get there if I’d have known, been invited, could get the time off work; all the things that most of us face when we simply want to be there for what comes to be a magical moment for us as we hear something for the first time. As I said in my original write up; you can’t help but fall in love with Violet Janine.
I certainly fell deeper into my own emotional imbalances of love and wishful thinking as a bucket list goal is to see this band play live. One day. Until then I’m including their recent live video performance. At least when we can’t be there, technology gets us as close as possible.
Basse contacted me the other day and dropped off the full mp3 of this recording and yea, it was in rotation that day. While I can’t tell you if there’s a limit to falling in love, I can tell you I do it all over again, every time I hear this band perform. Do yourself the biggest favor you can and check them out on facebook, their website, youtube, and if you’re one of the fortunate few, live in Europe. I’ve got a “global” job. One day I may get to Europe and the first thing I’ll do is see if I’m going to join the ranks of the fortunate.
