Janel Rae – Surrey Muse

Janel Rae is a singer, songwriter and media producer who has released three albums, and is now working on her debut musical ‘Marianne’. Born in Kelowna BC, Janel began performing and creating music at five, growing up at a piano, in a studio and on musical theatre stages, steeped in song. In 2019, she graduated from The Randolph College for Performing Arts where she won a Governor General’s award. In 2022, she was selected as the Third Place Winner of the debut Faith Nolan Award for Music. Living happily in Toronto, Janel’s art explores the oldest themes: death, dreams, justice, love and self-actualization. As the sole performer, producer, and engineer of much of her music, Janel combines the mysteries of the forest where she grew up and the clatter of the city she lives in to stitch together sonic worlds. Living happily in Toronto, Janel directs music videos, teaches voice and song creation, acts in indie films, and makes clothes.
