Jann Klose

The Philadelphia Daily News writes of Jann Klose’s new album, REVERIE: “Ear-grabbing pop singer-songwriter has a confident yet gentle voice, with tints of soul gospel and Afropop rhythms.” This multi-cultural pop singer-songwriter’s collection of songs covers as much musical, sonic and emotional ground as Jann has himself. Now living in the Bronx, New York, and born in Mannheim, Germany, his family relocated to Nairobi, Kenya, when he was less than a year old. “Eastern Africa was full of impressions. Because of my parents’ interest in travel, I experienced African culture first-hand at a very young age.” Jann’s travels as a child have manifested themselves in his constant drive to tour around the U.S. and Europe. First as a performer with Broadway Shows Jekyll & Hyde and Jesus Christ Superstar and now with his own band, playing an average of 75 shows per year and growing. With all the exposure the CD has received through the live shows and a variety of media it has become apparent that every listener and reviewer has a unique take on the record: “If it’s at all possible, this album is both spiritual, tender and funky at the same time. It may seem like an odd combination, but the pairing of things that don’t seem like they’d work, but do – is a big part of what sets this album apart from others.” – The Celebrity Cafe
