"While preparing for my own appearance at the Ellnora Guitar Festival,
I enjoyed watching videos of the other performers on Youtube.
Makana struck me as an incredible guitarist and lovely human being,
so I invited him to play with me on ‘At Seventeen’.
Our shows overlapped, so there was no time for even a sound check.
We met in his dressing room for all of five minutes, then hoped for the best.
As you can see and hear, his performance was very good indeed!" - Janis Ian

Steve Berkowitz talks about re-mastering the Janis Ian catalogue.

"Fade to Grey" duet Janis Ian with Trevor Sewell
Feat. Janis Ian on piano
"Trevor's song 'Fade to Grey' was one of my favorites,
but I always heard it as more of a jazz piece than a blues,
which is how he'd originally recorded it.
I asked him to let me arrange a new version and sing on it,
and this is the result!"

"Shadows" by Trevor Sewell. Piano Janis Ian. "Travor and his team had just about
given up on this song when I stopped by the studio.
After listening to a couple of versions, I stood up and said 'Trevor! You're trying to make this song rock,
but it’s not a rocker. You have a beautiful quiet, contemplative side to your voice.
How about we go into the piano room, just you and me facing one another,
and I'll play and you’ll sing. Let’s see what happens!'
Well, this is the result. I think it shows a completely different side of Trevor,
one he normally only shows to close friends. And I loved playing the piano part."

"Matthew" From Stanford Talisman Spring Show 2015
"Matthew" is a song written by American singer-song writer Janis Ian,
in reflection of Matthew Shephard, a young gay man murdered in a brutal hate crime
on 12th October 1998 in a field near Laramie, Wyoming.
In "Matthew," Ian reflects both on the inexplicable cruelty of Matthew's murder
as well as her own fear in the aftermath of the event, as a lesbian woman
in a society where homophobia makes such violence possible.
