NYC-based pop/R&B artist Janet Noh makes a compelling debut with her latest project, the 5-track EP titled “Love Me More.” Drawing inspiration from the sounds of the ‘90s and ‘00s while infusing modern production elements, Janet creates a musical landscape that is both nostalgic and contemporary, enriched by her classical pianist background. The EP delves into themes of self-love and empowerment, born out of a collage of painful lessons. Janet’s personal journey unfolds through the music, particularly after enduring manipulation and gaslighting from a close friend and collaborator. This challenging experience led her to question her musical abilities and self-worth. However, the EP becomes a testament to resilience as Janet breaks free from this toxic entanglement, using the pain as a catalyst for self-discovery and a revival of her passion for music.
The title track, “Love Me More,” stands out as an empowering anthem of strength and resilience. Janet’s soul-stirring vocals and poignant lyrics reflect her journey of reclaiming her identity and standing tall in the face of adversity. “Playing Dumb,” a confrontational track, challenges societal expectations and encourages listeners to embrace their authenticity unapologetically. The song’s assertive energy and bold lyrics make it a standout moment on the EP.
Closing the collection with a defiant note, “Do What You Want” empowers listeners to forge their own path, free from societal constraints. Janet’s expressive vocals, coupled with the track’s bold production, create an anthem for those seeking independence and creative freedom. Navigating away from the toxic collaborator, Janet took control of her narrative by writing and producing all five songs on the EP. Collaborating with producers such as Kubla Khan and GEKKO, she crafted a sound that seamlessly blends various influences, resulting in a unique and relatable musical experience. Released on September 29, 2023, “Love Me More” is available on all streaming platforms. Janet Noh’s debut EP serves not only as a musical journey but also as a powerful testament to the strength found in self-love and the resilience to overcome adversity.
