Janyse Aldis Jaud (born November 26, 1969), known in her singing career as Janyse and in her movie career as Janyse Jaud, is a Canadian voice actress, dancer and singer. She is of Icelandic-French descent. As a voice actress, she tends to be cast as flirtatious women with low sultry voices.

Early life

Raised on a farm in Kelowna, British Columbia, Jaud started performing in theatre, music and classical ballet productions at the age of five. She wrote her first song at the age of nine and her influences are an amalgam of different artists and genres.[2]

The messages of her songs were taken from her own first hand experience, after being in a car accident. "The doctor told me that I could end up in a wheelchair, and that I should seriously consider changing careers," she recounts. "So I decided to try something that would absolutely terrify me. Stand-up comedy. It was fun and took my mind off of the seriousness of the accident. None of the things the doctor warned me of came to pass. I took care of myself and I recovered. It was from this experience that I learned that a dream can be achieved and that sometimes, it's just better to look at life in a humorous way."[2]


Janyse's acting has been honored under the guidance of Ivana Chubbuck, coach also to Oscar winners Halle Berry and Charlize Theron. She has appeared on-camera in television and film, danced professionally as a jazz dancer, and performed in musical theatre productions. Jaud is also a cartoon voiceover artist, working with clients such as Marvel Comics, Cartoon Network, Disney, and narrating the Emmy award-winning series "Adoption Stories".[1](citation needed)

Through her work in animation, Jaud met children through the Make-A-Wish Foundation and became inspired to create a children's CD to help kids, titled "The Magic of Think". "I called it The Magic Of Think because the premise is that you can think of something positively or negatively – it's your choice. But by thinking positively, it can help you gain courage and then if you just keep persisting you can achieve your dreams." The album was an immediate hit with children and their parents and was honoured to be chosen as a gift to the nominees for the GRAMMYS and OSCARS.[3]

Jaud has continued the theme of The Magic of Think project by writing two children's books and also creating a YouTube channel with nursery rhymes that inspire courage.

Jaud has received awards for her songwriting from the Hollywood Music in Media Awards (Best Song),[4] Independent Music Awards (finalist),[5] Toronto Exclusive Magazine Awards (Best Jazz CD) [6] The Song of the Year Awards.[7] She has had several of her songs placed in film and television, including works starring Pamela Anderson, Dean Cain, Chad Allen, Sally Pressman and more.[2](citation needed)

She has also appeared on camera on four television series The X-Files, The Outer Limits, Double Exposure and Andromeda.
