Based in Sydney, Australia, vocalist / pianist Janet Seidel currently enjoys a rare and enviable
international reputation with 14 CDs released in Australia and also available in several other countries.
In the Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD 2006 (UK) she is described as “Australia’s first lady of jazz”. On the
other hand she is revered by cabaret aficionados overseas such as in New York’s Cabaret Hotline - “I
had heard so much about this delightful jazz star from Australia, but I was still not prepared for this
awesome performance. I have never been so thrilled by a performer - this lady is amazing - such pure
clean vocals!" according to the writer.
Janet has been performing jazz oriented material and the Great American Songbook in particular since
her High School and University days in South Australia in the 1970s
