Biography

Jann Klose’s new album MOSAIC, due June 2013 can easily be called a sonic, lyrical and emotional mosaic from an artist, who is known as one with multi-cultural roots and an equally widely-faceted career and a voice that Public Radio’s Barb Heller says, “could sing the phonebook.”

GREETINGS FROM TIM BUCKLEY director Dan Algrant realized that when he hired Jann as a featured vocalist and guitarist in the Jeff Buckley biopic that stars Penn Badgley and Imogen Poots. The movie will be released April 16th, 2013 by Tribeca Film / Focus World.

Jann’s album MOSAIC follows the indie success of REVERIE (2008) and SACRIFICE EP (2010) and the music video for DOING TIME. Produced by Grammy winner James Frazee (Esperanza Spalding, Blondie, My Morning Jacket) and David Bendeth (Paramore, Bruce Hornsby, Elvis Presley) MOSAIC was recorded between Fall 2011 and Winter of 2012/13. Double GRAMMY-winner Warren Russell-Smith, mastered MOSAIC.

MOSAIC’s songs tackle personal and topical subjects and bring together a variety of instruments, musical and lyrical styles from street influences of reggae and punk to calypso, to classic rock, and the folk and Afro-beat that has addicted fans of all ages to Jann’s music. Songs include Jann’s originals, “Still,” “Make It Better,” “Four Leaf Clover,” “On and On,” “Falling Tears,” and a playful duet “Beautiful One” with Rounder Records’ Carrie Newcomer. The album ends with a stunning a cappella cover of Tim Buckley’s “Song To The Siren.

    Hi scrambler! I saw Jann on NBC too. That was good. I had never heard of him before that but immediately went to itunes and downloaded a couple of songs. Cool stuff. Let me know if you need any help with the street team. I live in southern NJ and saw on Jann's website that he's playing in Doylestown at the Puck in September. I'm planning on going to the show and will be happy to promote it locally

    Cool new video - I actually saw their performance on TV that day and it was awesome. The sound was on and so was the playing. Really worth going to see Jann and his band play. I'm a bit biased I guess since I help out with Jann's Street Team whenever they are in the Philly area. For anyone that missed the show at the Tin Angel in April, as far as I know they will be back in the area this fall.
