Janis Martin was an American rockabilly and country music singer. She was one of the few women working in the male-dominated rock and roll music scene during the 1950s and an early female innovator. In 1995, Martin appeared on my Rockabilly Filly album. We recorded an unreleased album together six months before her death. These recordings were released this year as The Blanco Sessions by Cow Island Music.
