That baptism of fire into the music industry wouldn’t be easy for the toughest of individuals, but it was Janet’s gentle, sensitive, and even vulnerable interpretations on X-Factor that engaged her to the masses. Abbey Road Rewind is back for 2023, as our cracking team of engineers share studio stories, highlights and their ones to watch for next year.She didn’t sign with a major label and started her own journey independently, but had to overcome a lot of personal issues to be able to finally release her second album. A real bonus was working with Christian Wright once again - he has worked on so much of my catalogue over the years, so it was fitting that he mastered Confessional.

Making her own mark, firmly establishing her own stamp, ‘Confessional’ is interspersed with the sound of ‘home’ and traditional Irish twists and turns; the spiritual impact of her Irish upbringing examined in ‘Holy Water’, ‘Sweet Sacred Friend’ and references to her upbringing, childhood, the loss of innocence, and references to mental health such as in ‘Away with the Fairies’, as they’d say in Ireland.This song she wrote about learning how to live with an experience with sexual assault is equally heartbreaking and empowering, as she ends the song saying she is ‘ready to speak’. Good Records is a genre independent record label established in 2010 to distribute, market, and promote artists and music that defy boundaries, reject limitations, and transcend the ordinary.

Ken went on to work with some of the biggest names in rock including The Beatles, Pink Floyd, Jeff Beck, Donovan and David . Here lyeth my confessional of the sins I want so much to be free from and to finally forgive myself for what I've done.

Devlin asks on Honest Men, which addresses the sense of displacement she experienced while initially floundering. In ‘My Confessional’ Janet reveals a life less ordinary, as unpredictable as it is true, as timely as it is vital. We open with Confessional; a pounding, tribal Celtic affair; bringing to mind a raucous tavern scene from Brave or Lord of the Rings; making you want to stamp your feet and rise from your seat in alliance; Confessional is a resounding and brave battle cry of what is to come, and what will be faced. Her voice is the keystone of the record as, apart from on the minor filler track ‘Love Song’, her vocals here are their most developed and expressive to date. But at the same time, they reveal how she found the strength, fortitude and character that enabled her to overcome and triumph over these adversities and rebuild her life.

There’s even a book to accompany the release – titled ‘My Confessional’ – both featuring Devlin in red-haired goddess style on the cover. Through bi-weekly YouTube videos - for which she has nearly half a million subscribers - she shares original music, cover versions, vlogs and poetry, and posts on a variety of subjects including mental health, sexuality and bullying. While opening an Irish track with the words “oh Danny boy” is a little on the nose, album highlight ‘Speak’ shows a stunning range – from wistful and delicate to raw and impassioned. Find out what recordist Christopher Parker, technical engineer Leon Marks and mastering engineer Alex Gordon shared from their year at Abbey .The first song Confessional is a powerful song about Janet's struggles in life and and she is so honest about her struggles in almost every song. This being especially evident in Big Wide World - which is a bright, sparkly pop affair full to the bring with joy. Janet Devlin Opens up on Her Upcoming Album, "Confessional": "I Just Wanted to Finally Disclose the Real Version of Myself to Everyone" ". With its thundering drums – not to mention uilleann pipes, accordion, fiddles, bodhrán, cows ribs and whistles – ‘Confessional’ is the fusion of Janet’s identity, inspirations and influences, transforming it from not only a great introductory piece for the upcoming album, but also a fitting foundation for her re-entry to the musical landscape. A real highlight however must be cutting my vinyl at the studio - I had never seen the technique before and had the best time immersed in the process, and even got Christian to engrave a personal quote from me onto the lacquer.
