Swedish pop talent Janet Leon has had an illustriously gleaming career to date that has aligned her with a prime cast of revered industry types along the way, kick started from becoming signed by Tommy Mottola and being managed by Laila Bagge / Matthew Knowles (Beyonce’s father) as part of International girl group “Play” when you’re 12 years old is afterall, quite something isn’t it!
Janet’s most recent triumph came through at this year’s Melodifestivalen, (Sweden’s national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest) whereupon her entry “Heartstrings” although, didn’t make it through as the chosen candidate for this years competition in Malmö, has gone on to rack-up a wave of post-show popularity via itunes.
This recent episode may well have brought to light Janet Leon’s maturing talent as a solo artiste and flourishing capability of self-assured performances such as at Melodifestivalen now make her amongst the top pickings in representing her nation on some level.
Quick to work after Melodifestivalen, Janet has now teamed up on co-writing with Grammy nominated producer Jörgen Elofsson, (noted for penning Kelly Clarkson’s “Stronger”), Lisa Desmond and Jesper Jakobsson whereupon, the cast now present a bouncy power ballad in “New Colours”.
Proudly gaining endorsement as this year’s Stockholm Pride Anthem,“New Colours”, is enriched with hope and empowerment; all coming together under a euro-tinged rainbow of prominently Swedish mauve disco styling that is both poignant and inspiring all in one.
