By Janet Devlin
Since wowing the judges and the nation with her unique vocals on The X Factor in 2011, Janet Devlin has established a devoted fanbase. Through bi-weekly YouTube videos – for which she has nearly half a million subscribers – she shares original music, cover versions, vlogs and poetry, and posts on a variety of subjects including mental health, sexuality and bullying. And now, as she releases her second album, Confessional, Janet translates this frankness into an honest and poignant book, openly disclosing the experiences which have inspired her latest songwriting.
"Believe it or not, you’re holding my life in your hands. Not the picture-perfect version we’ve all become accustomed to, thanks to social media. This is my life as I’ve lived it – no filters.
Each chapter in this book unlocks the truth behind a song from my album Confessional. They span ten years of intense self-discovery married with a lot of self-sabotage. My broken brain has taken me to dark places both in my own head and in the real world. But, with destruction comes creation. I genuinely hope that My Confessional does not personally resonate with you and that you’ve not been to the same Hell that I’ve come to call Home, but if you have let my life be proof that it all works out in the end. I see now that the world is truly what we make of it and that everything happens for a reason. Or, at least, that’s what I tell myself.
Here lyeth my confessional of the sins I want so much to be free from – and to finally forgive myself for.”
