Description

“Queen Of The Keyboards,” “The Complete Package” and the “Triple Threat” are just a few titles that have been often used to describe Bay Area keyboardist and vocalist, Janice Maxie-Reid. Conservatory-trained, jazz and gospel inspired, this stunning and talented powerhouse hails from Oakland California. Janice began playing at the piano at age four, singing at age nine and performing at the professional level with bands at the age of thirteen. She impressively shifts through all genres from classical to spirituals, blues to gospel and funk to jazz. A “one-woman band,” Janice often doubles as a keyboard and left-hand keyboard bass player which makes her a force of nature on any stage! Her soulful, angelic and daringly accurate vocal prowess, distinctive four-octave voice range and engaging stage presence captivate her audiences! In addition to her outstanding performance skills, Janice is a respected educator who has taught and mentored scores of performing artists. Many have gone on to pursue successful music careers including opera singer Jeannine Anderson, neo soul singer Sakai, Stevie Wonder’s keyboardist Victoria Theodore and seven-time Grammy nominee, Ledisi.
