About
Hello everyone my name is Janis Lloyd--I've been a songwriter for over 20 years and a writer most of my life.Registered with BMI and have a pretty extensive catalog including most genres. I love to Collaborate with dedicated folks and am very easy to get along with.Published my 1st Christian poetry book "A Gift of Hope" 2014. I donate all proceeds to Charity.'.At this point in my life I now have more time to devote to creative endeavors and would love to collaborate with composers of all genres since my talent is best suited to being a lyricist though I have a good ear for music and would like to learn to play one or more instruments. I do have 4 guitars and a keyboard at my disposal.One of my friends who is recording his 1st cd is including a song I wrote for Tony Bennett called "Love Is Gonna Win". He's always been my favorite Singer since I was 15. I grew up with a lot of great music including a mom who sang and introduced me to great music of her era. So I have a love for most music and would love to write all styles.Back in the 90's I wrote 30 something songs with the former Music Director of the Temptations Sonny James waiting to be recorded and re-arranged for Artists today.I'm very open to collaboration and am very easy to work with.The end product is more special with 2 creative hearts...So am looking forward to putting this career back on track...

This was done with a quartet which was great but I would love to hear Tony Bennett doing it with a full Big Band arrangement!!

Just letting my imagination run free on this one. Was voted "Best Rock Song" on one of my old friends compilation cd's. My friend Gary Facemyer and brother did the vocals, music, and guitar-- great guitar licks on this one!! Actually Gary was offered a record deal on the Mike Douglas show but there was a disagreement with management and Gary was starting a young family and had to feed his family so his dream was crushed but he would be glad to hear today that I am a Christian since we used to talk about that back then when my life had it's share of ups and downs. But God has truly blessed me today and I pray a successful songwriting career is part of His plan...

Well believe it or not I wrote this while listening to Tony Bennett while washing my kitchen floor. My buddy Corn Bishop did the demo who is now putting it out on his 1st cd. Roger Smith Jazz keyboardist for Tower of Power wanted to cut it for one of his Jazz albums where the Temptations were on that cd also but his record company forced him finish the cd in 3 weeks and he told me I had written a "Standard" but because his record label put the rush on him he didn't have enough time to rearrange it the way he wanted to, too fit his style. Roger is a very talented Jazz artist as well as Funk, R&B and everything in between-we've stayed good friends over the years and I have always cherished his friendship--but we were never quite able to come together as co-writes mainly do to his busy schedule and crazy record label stuff...but that's show biz--I'm going to send this to Tony Bennett personally as a gift since I wrote it for him and he's always been my favorite singer and I have always admired everything about him and he's still going strong at 90 today--he always reinvents himself! He's definitely always been my inspiration!!And thanks to my Italian Mama for introducing me to all that great music growing up, she was a singer too with perfect pitch and no one could whistle prettier, a lost art today,,, Kudos to Pandora and the variety of Jazz Vocalists they play teaching me about the new artists and where I need to place my songs...I never get tired of this song I've always loved it!

I actually got this idea from the 1st Entertainment Attorney I met when we sat down to talk about my career and we got on the subject of relationships and I commented for me "its always been about the kiss"....Seems like "Kiss" songs are always hits---hope I can say that too...
