Jannecke In A Nutshell
Jannecke was born and raised in Bergen, Norway. Since the age of 5 Jannecke has been singing and performing. Her greatest influence and mentor has been her father, the Norwegian singing/performing legend, Helge Nilsen. Helge was a big name performer in the 60’s throughout Norway and Scandinavia and still is today. Through her father’s experience Jannecke hit the stage as a young girl, impressing crowds with her innate ability to project the meaning of a song and hold the audience with every note and lyric, while remaining pitch perfect. Through this experience Jannecke has developed into an incredible artist, both on-stage and in the recording studio.
Since moving from Norway to Canada with her husband and settling in her new country, Jannecke has been very busy developing her career. In 2011 Jannecke was discovered by a top producer in Nashville by the name of Jeff Huskins (Played for Gene Watson, Clint Black and was a member of Little Texas; Owned his own label Vivaton Records with Chely Wright and Mark Chesnutt on his roster). Jeff invited Jannecke to Nashville to record a 4 track EP with the industries best musicians (Ed Bayers Jr., John D. Willis, Scott Sanders, James Mitchell, Jimmy Carter, Andy Leftwich, and Jason Webb), back-up singer (Wes Hightower) and studios (The Tracking Room and Blackbird Studios). Of the 4 songs Jannecke cut, two were written by Leslie Satcher (“Tough” for Kellie Pickler, “Troubadour” for George Strait along with other hits for Joe Diffie, Sara Evans, Lee Ann Womack, Wade Hayes, Reba McEntire, Vince Gill, Pam Tillis, and Willie Nelson), “The Back Row” and “Daddy’s Old Records” , the 3rd track was written by Billy Currington/Carson Chamberlain called “Cowboy Cowboy”, and the 4th track is a song that was released in Norway in 2006 by Merit Larsen as a pop song called “Let it Go” that reached #1 for 6 weeks.
Over the spring and summer of 2012 Jannecke enjoyed performing throughout Saskatchewan at numerous festivals and concerts. From the SCMA Awards in Prince Albert to Country at the Creek at the Ness Creek site, to Hillbilly Boogie in Kenaston, the Norwegian Pavilion at the Saskatoon Folkfest, and the Heroes Hoedown at the Wounded Warrior Weekend in Nipawin.
Jannecke is now focussing on producing a new single right here in Saskatoon with renowned Canadian producer Bart Mckay, look for that release in spring of 2013
Jannecke is also gearing up for a busy spring and summer again, performing at more festivals and gigs throughout Sask. Particularly Jannecke is excited for an upcomng concert in Saskatoon on the 15th of Feb, at The Broadway Theatre, a benefit concert for our wounded warriors. She is also pre-booked for the largest Norwegian festival in North America, Hostfest being held at Minot North Dakota next October.
