Janet Gardner confirms there are no plans for her to rejoin Vixen

Author Benedetta Baldin - 30.5.2024

After the departure of Lorraine Lewis, probably the first thought in all of Vixen’s fans’ head was that Janet Gardner would return to the group on lead vocals. Unfortunately, she denied this on her social media accounts:

Just to clear things up…I am not rejoining Vixen. As always, I wish them and Lorraine all the best moving forward.

The singer is working on a new album with her husband, guitarist/producer Justin James. We’ll have to wait a bit more to find out who is going to be rocking the microphone with the all-female group. Here is a statement from the band:

Hello Foxhead Nation! First of all we want to extend a special thank you to Lorraine Lewis. We’re grateful for her contributions to Vixen and wish her all the best in her career moving forward. Secondly, thank you to everyone sending suggestions and to those who inquired about singing for us. We’re letting you all know that we have our new singer and we’re ready to Rev it Up! Wanna know who? Come find out! We’ll see you on the road!

Gardner spoke fondly of Lewis.

Lorraine has always been really supportive and nice to me, always. So, yeah, it’s cool.

The upcoming shows of the band are:

  1. Jun 21st Anaheim, CA, US Honda Center
