Out of Austin, TX erupts a fresh, new sound onto the scene... Far fr0m N0rmal is far off the beaten path! And the new album, entitled Pseudo Suicide, is simply off the charts! From the unshakeable hook of 'Waiting' to the narcotic resonance of 'Help Me', this compilation will keep the listener engaged and enthralled...and begging for more. Singer/songwriter/musician/producer Janea Taylor - April 30th, 1980, is the creative force behind Far fr0m N0rmal. Janea originated in Houston, TX but was raised in and around the Chicago area. She began playing guitar at age 13, self-taught though heavily influenced by her grandfather, a rockin' musician in his own right - Max Clevenger of Southern Cross. At age 20, Janea longed to return to her Texas roots and headed down to Austin, TX - the undeniable creative center of the universe. In Austin, she continued to develop her songwriting skills, and began to hone her production and mixing skills. As the new environment nurtured Janea's creative energies, this fresh, new sound was born. Described as a fusion of electronic/danceable beats and heavy guitar rhythms, laid behind melodic vocals, the sound comes to form the unique genre of tech-rock. Influences run the gamut but include KMFDM, Smashing Pumpkins, The Faint, Tool, Crystal Method, Daft Punk, and the list goes on... Expect to hear a melding of rock, punk, trance, dance, industrial and more.
