Her single "Under the Clock" was a top 20 AC hit. The video also received frequent airplay on VH-1. Her single "Say Hello To Ronnie" was also a Billboard charter, making the pop charts. Recently, Janey self-released her blues album "The Street Less Traveled".

The Workshop

Topics include:

  • How is music used in a scene?
  • Cues, source cues, end title songs, beginning title songs and feature songs, etc
  • The collaborative process in filmmaking
  • The do's and don'ts of writing on spec and pitching to music supervisors
  • Deals, sync licenses and royalties

In addition, the workshop will feature a live critique and Pitch session! All participants can bring any song they feel can work for film and TV or any song they would like to be critiqued. If Street hears a song that works well for Film and TV, she will pass it on to her film and TV song plugger.
