Originally from Toronto, Canada, Giselle Janette is a singer-songwriter who studied Vocal Jazz Performance at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City. Due to a vast amount of global traveling experiences, Giselle continually incorporates unique sounds and styles into her repertoire. Multi-instrumented with diverse musical influences throughout her childhood, she has performed at local fundraisers, art shows, university festivals, and charity events.
Giselle studied classical music for many years and completed The Royal Conservatory of Music’s Grade Seven in Voice. She is a graduate from York University, holding an Honours Bachelor of Environmental Studies. As well, in 2013, she received a Specialist Singer-Songwriter Certificate from Berklee College of Music. Currently, she is pursuing her Masters degree in Global Entertainment and Music Business at Berklee College of Music
In New York, Giselle was involved with Musicians On Call, an organization that brings live music to patients undergoing treatment in health care centers, such as hospitals, in order to help lighten their days.
For three years, Giselle worked as an outreach campaigner with Environmental Defense Canada. This experience led her to realize the potential for social change through the arts – specifically music. In 2014, Giselle co-founded Speak for Music - a non-for-proft project that develops English and music technology skills through written and oral exercises. As a final product, an album will be created with original compositions scored by students from Berklee College of Music
