Music and performance are a core part of who Jansen is, and she loves sharing her passion with others. She’s been performing since age 6 and writing songs since age 10, surrounded by music from a 1st generation Polish family who encouraged her to pursue her artistic dreams. She grew up listening to various instruments played in the home like Trumpet and harmonica and lots of singing, there was never dull moment. From Rock, Pop even Polka music. But it was the sounds of Country and Folk music on Sunday mornings that grew in her soul. Jansen first hit Nashville stages in 2006 after winning the Connecticut Country Music Association’s “Female Vocalist of the Year” award. Since then, she’s performed at countless venues - from New York’s The Bitter End, to Nashville’s iconic Tootsies, to headlining Hartford's Infinity Music Hall and Mohegan Sun Casino in Connecticut- traveling back and forth between Connecticut and Tennessee. Along the way, she’s had the opportunity to open for artists like Phil Vassar, James Montgomery and James Otto.
Aside from traditional performances, she also loves performing for residents of local retirement homes, bringing her music to those who would otherwise not be able to attend her concerts.
She has 5 CD's all self-written and is performing in her own musical tribute show
entitled "Outlaw Women of Country," a small Theatre show receiving rave reviews. A determined and driven artist, she hopes to someday perform at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.
