Her father was Maltese and her mother came from the Canary Islands and after a split in the marriage, she and her mother arrived in Spain when she was 12 and at that time Jeanette spoke only English but soon found plenty of friends who helped her to becoming a fluent Spanish speaker .
She mainly sings in Spanish although she has recorded in English, French, Portuguese, German and Japanese and has worked with such well-known names as Julio Iglesias and Sacha Distel.
At an early age, she wanted to become a professional singer and she loved the American folk music of the day with particular favourites Bob Dylan, The Byrds and Donovan and she started writing songs in that style and accompanying herself on guitar.
Later she joined early Pic-Nic and had some chart success but they eventually broke up and she returned to being a singer songwriter and her fame in Spain and South America grew so that she recorded seven albums in her own name.
