Personalities | Janis Martin | Rockabilly | Country
(Vocals, guitar, b. 1940)
Born in Sutherlin, Virginia, Janis Martin toured extensively but was too raunchy for mass acceptance, despite a series of outstanding rockabilly recordings. She retired in 1959 to raise her family but re-emerged in the 1980s. Since then she has made numerous live appearances, mainly in Europe, where she has established a loyal following and remains in great demand.
