Janet released her self-titled debut solo album in 2017 that was produced and written with her guitarist husband, Justin James. Her second solo album Your Place in the Sun came in 2019, when she again quit the on-again, off-again Vixen to focus on her solo career. Joining the 57-year-old powerhouse vocalist on her first time in Australia was Justin James on guitar, Anthony Gemignani on bass and Richie Rivera on drums.
