Kali Jani is #Flyah

 

What makes a new artist rise above the rest? If you ask singer/songwriter Kali Jani she will tell you it is quite simple, “An unwavering belief in one’s self and an unfaltering commitment to making it to the top.”
So who is Kali Jani?
She’s a hot new singer on the scene out of Orlando, Florida, set to release her debut single Permission to Go, a lyrics driven track with a hot mixture of pop and urban flavor.
Born Simone Farrell in Boston Massachusetts, she grew-up in Poinciana, Florida. A graduate of Liberty High School, she continued her education and earned a BA in Criminology from the University of South Florida, in 2012.
The stage name Kali Jani has significant meaning. Kali means lively and fierce, while Jani translates into God has answered. Jani believes that now is her time.
“For so long I did everything that I thought I was supposed to do, things that everyone else wanted me to do,” she says.
Following this path never seemed right for her and she constantly doubted her purpose. “It was like, yes, I did well in school, I got the degree, but am I happy?” She asked herself over and over again. Finally she had to step back and reassess her life. In the end she had to do what made her happy, and that thing is singing.
A born performer destined for greatness is how she sees herself. She began singing at age five and dancing at age ten. Confidence builders that give her an advantage in a crowded industry. Jani has never been shy and contributes her strong stage presence to competitive dancing from middle school through college.
Armed with the gift of songwriting, her insatiable desire to pen songs that people can relate to in dealing with their own life situations, has guided her craft. She is motivated to write by her own experiences, sharing that it is therapeutic to write about whatever she’s going through at the moment.
So what does she do with the material she’s written? Interstate-4, the corridor that connects Orlando to Tampa, has become her road to success. Of late, she can be found putting in the work at the Red Lounge Studio, recording songs for her much anticipated CD. When not recording, Jani is building her presence and brand, and generating excitement for her upcoming release.
“I have to set myself apart from everyone else, and not fall into the trap of producing gimmicks instead of great music.” Jani is focused and taking the right path. She gets that she has to have something extra that will make people want to hear her sound and want her product.
She’s well on her way. The industry is already scoping out her work and providing positive feedback—from requests for her demo and offers to do vocals for other artist.
When asked who has inspired her the most, the answer is quick, Whitney Houston.
“She mastered her voice, it is amazing.” begins Jani. Her energy level increases as she talks about the late megastar. “Not a lot of people today study their craft, but she (Houston) had full knowledge of the industry. I want to follow her steps in terms of being business savvy and on top of my game.”
Jani knows being an overnight success is a long shot, so she doesn’t mind being patient. Her motivation and drive will take her where she needs to be. “I’m not going to give up…ever,” says the budding artist, adding, “Roadblocks and struggles will come, but that will only make me stronger, and the reward sweeter.”
If she had to give advice to anyone wanting to get into the industry, her mantra is, do whatever your heart desires and stick with it.
Jani’s friends would all agree, she’s talented, passionate, and if you catch her on the right day, she can be downright goofy. If you want to connect with this up and coming blossoming artist, you can connect with her on most social media platforms under the name Kali Jani.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
