Janet Devlin Tickets and Dates

More Information about Janet Devlin

Janet Devlin is a 25-year-old Northern Irish singer-songwriter, who grew up the only girl and youngest of four, outside the village of Gortin in County Tyrone. Fuelled by a love of bands like Foo Fighters and Red Hot Chili Peppers and inspired by their song-writing, she taught herself to play instruments by ear and penned her own songs. Her musicality and determination flourished from a young age and she joined YouTube in 2006 at age 12 to push out her music to the public. This gained an unexpected but welcome fan base who were ready to support her in the next stage of her music career. In 2011, she caught the public's attention on Series 8 of The X Factor, where she consistently received the highest consecutive public vote out of all the contestants and gained a place on the live arena tour.

Janet's debut, Running With Scissors was released in the UK in June 2014 (reaching number one on the UK Indie Breakers chart) and in North America in Feb 2015. It is full of folk-driven pop songs and heart-touching ballads, which perfectly showcase her unique and enchanting vocals. The majority of the album is written by Janet and was recorded up in a staggering 6 weeks; but hidden around the corner are featured co-writes with Newton Faulkner ('Creatures Of The Night' and 'Hide And Seek') and Jack Savoretti ('Delicate') nestled alongside a surprising and sensitive cover of The Cure's 'Friday I'm In Love' which has racked up over 14.2M streams on Spotify alone. A number of EPs and followed (Duvet Daze, December Daze, Little Lights) and two standalone tracks, 'Outernet Song' and 'I Lied To You'. She enjoyed a regular touring schedule which saw her travel around the UK and Ireland, as well as the East Coast of North America.

A result of the music releases has helped Janet maintain a thriving YouTube presence. She regularly creates video content for over 530,000 subscribers including original music, cover versions, vlogs and poetry, and posts on a variety of subjects including mental health, sexuality and bullying. She has attended numerous Creator Summits across Europe as guest and also a performer / panellist, and was included in the UK Book of YouTube 2018; an industry manual containing the top 100 most influential YouTubers in the country.
