Biography

With her sleek bob haircut (usually with flowers placed just so), vintage fashion sense and artfully customized ukulele, Janet Klein appears to have popped off of a fin-de-siecle French postcard. Sharing her repertoire of “obscure, naughty and lovely” songs from the 1910s, 1920s & 1930s, Janet is a musical archeologist hiding in the body of an F. Scott Fitzgerald heroine.

She performs to regularly sold-out houses in the LA area backed by incredible musicians dubbed her “Parlor Boys”. She has appeared to much acclaim in San Francisco, New York and in Japan, including historic venues such as the Castro Theatre, Palace Theatre, Silent Movie Theatre, (often on the bill with Buster Keaton, Charlie Chaplin & Harold Lloyd!),Yosemite’s 1927 Awahnee Hotel, Art Deco gem, the Argyle Hotel and the Getty Center Concert Series.

She has five records to her credit, each including musical material from rare test pressings, lost Vitaphone films, early hot jazz specialties,vaudeville & tin pan alley tunes, French ballads, Yiddish & Hawaiian novelty numbers and more.
