In 2018 Janssen releases her debut album ‘SOFT FORCES’ under the moniker STASJ. Web magazine The Next Gig: “This debut is intriguing; beautiful and intense songs with a serious-in- depth without hurrying. Especially the beautiful and occasionally tormented vocals of Janssen run the show”. Full review here.
