San Francisco has been really showing the love lately! I'm very honored to be the recipient of SF Weekly's Best of San Francisco 2011 Award in the category "Best Cover Songs with No Hands" (all you other hand-less cover songs, step up!).
Here are some recent radio spots on The Smiths Project for your listening pleasure:
"Janice Whaley put her mind to making a 71-track a cappella tribute to The Smiths. After a year of hard, inspired work she not only succeeded, she made a very beautiful, admirable, no, ASTOUNDING a cappella album. Morrissey, et al, you should be proud of her." -Tony Visconti Legendary record producer. Most known for producing T. Rex, David Bowie, Morrissey, and Kristeen Young.
"I've never known anyone approach a task with the clear-headed vision and unwavering dedication that Janice has shown on The Smiths Project. Embarked on with love and accomplished with style!"
"For me, The Smiths Project personifies why we all love music. Janice is the rare artist that might not know how talented she is...well, the cat's out of the bag. Congratulations and don't stop. Ever."
-James Roday Actor, writer and producer. Most notably as Shawn Spencer on the USA Network TV series Psych.
"As a lifelong smiths fan, I'm blown away by Janice's versions, the arrangements, her voice... I hear the songs in a whole new way." -Thomas Lennon Actor, comedian, writer, director and producer. Most notably from MTV's The State and Lt. Dangle on Comedy Central's TV series Reno 911!
