With country western music legend Marty Robbins as her father, Janet Robbins would seem a natural candidate to follow in his footsteps. Yet, despite childhood music lessons, her father's piano playing throughout the night and her mother's religious tunes filling the house during the day, Janet rebelled against contemplating a music career. That is, until her teens found her seduced by the classic rock strains of Led Zeppelin and the Doors, especially Jim Morrison's "Riders on the Storm." Janet felt such a kindred connection to the sexy, melancholic poet/singer, that much of her own subsequent compositions would contain similarly erotic and surrealistic imagery. After coming to the realization that only music felt right, Janet Robbins debuted in 1998 with the independent release All The Worlds.
