To Sing The Songs That Saved My Life

*December 27, 2010 Original post* 
This year I'm not going to bother to say I'm going to lose 20 pounds or give up chocolate or any of that. This year I plan to do what I really love and concentrate on happiness that already exists in the world instead of striving for that dangling carrot of a better world tomorrow, new slender thighs, etc...

I've been singing these songs all my life so the only thing that changes is that I'm going to record them. Each Smiths song, in order by album, by the end of 2010. No frills, music, nothing. Just my voice. What ever happens next, is what ever happens next.

*2020 Edit*
Wow, I seriously had no idea what I was in for with this project. It became an all-consuming 1300 hour project of determination and discovery. I met so many amazing people, and really stretched my vocal and recording skills. To listen back is to follow the journey of me learning and growing as I sang my way through the year. I pushed past endless obstacles of time, creativity, and emotions and in the end, it was my way of subconsciously working through the grief of losing my my two friends the previous year. Their deaths were catalyst for realizing I needed to do something in case I were to suddenly go and leaving nothing of value for MY loved ones. I'm proud of what I accomplished and I hope you enjoy listening to my personal journey of rediscovering myself through the songs that saved my life.

XO, janice

Getting Ready for a Reboot

The Smiths Project 10th Anniversary Reboot is coming January 1, 2020.

I will be re-posting each song in the order they were originally released in 2010 through out the entirety of this next year. Along with the original post, I will share behind the scenes info, technical descriptions of how I recorded the music, my thoughts looking back, and anything else I can think of. I will also be making the physical box sets available for purchase again!

I will also be posting any art, pictures, music videos for everyone to see. If you would like to create a music video, please contact me at and I'll send you the remastered song for use in your project.

Getting excited to share the journey with everyone again!
