Greetings From Cape Town

Hi!

Hope you had a lovely summer and my thanks to everyone that came out to all the events this season! From my shows with Gary Lucas at Joe’s Pub, Stephen Talkhouse and The Cutting Room to Wave Hill Park, Woodbridge Wednesdays, the Black Potatoe Music Festival, Sellersville Theater and my tour in Canada, some amazing moments!

Today, I’m writing to you from Cape Town, South Africa where I’ll be attending a BMI Songwriting Camp starting this Sunday, 9/4/16. I’ll be down here for the next month or so playing shows as well. Would love to see you at any of them if you’re around. Kind of hard to believe that I’m back here again already… It’s only been a year since I last came to this incredible place that I spent part of my childhood in. I’ll be documenting the trip on my social media and hope you’ll tune in. Links are Facebook PageTwitterInstagram and my personal profile on Facebook is here.

Couple more newsy items and then on to the shows… If you see any open dates that are near you before and after booked shows, please reach out to me if you’re interested in booking a house concert or private show!

Pandora has been a great home for my songs and they’ve been getting a good amount of plays thanks to you. Over 350,000 to be exact. Please tune in at www.pandora.com/Jann-Klose.

My last solo album is back on iTunes and Spotify after switching distributors. Thanks for your patience here, please take a moment to add, review and rate MOSAIC by using these links: iTunes is http://apple.co/2bL8tqV and Spotify is http://spoti.fi/2bK0RUf

The Will Gray Blueprint is an online platform offering fans the opportunity to care for artists while on tour – covering expenses such as food, gas, housing, & roadblocks. Please check it out and contribute on my page there if you’re able. Every bit helps. Thank you! https://thewillgrayblueprint.com/artists/jann-klose

SA Tour Report + NYC, NJ, PA, Germany + New Song

Hi!

I’m back in NYC after an amazing tour in South Africa. My first time back since childhood, it was an experience I will never forget. Great shows, great new friends and fans and traveling in a country that has changed massively since I was there last as a boy. Politically, it’s tough… High unemployment, high crime and corruption. However, the people of South Africa are fighting hard in whatever way they can to make their country a better place to live and work in. I posted a lot of photos on my Instagram which anyone can access by going to www.instagram.com/jannklose and a tour retrospective video will be posted to my YouTube channel in the coming days. You can access it by going to www.youtube.com/jannklose.

Coming up, I’m playing shows in New York City, New Jersey and Pennsylvania: B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on Monday, November 2nd (opening for The Yardbirds!) and one of my favorite NJ venues, Cozy Cabin Concerts on November 7th, which will sell out, definitely get your tix in advance.

I’m planing a trip to Nashville and Florida later part of the month, please let me know if you’d like to book me for a house concert. Then, this December I am joining my good friend, Annie Haslam and members of classical rock group Renaissance for her Christmas shows at the Sellersville Theater on December 19th and 20th.

This January I’m back in Germany for a short tour! The great Kukuun Club has re-opened on the famous Reeperbahn and I’m thrilled to play a show there on Saturday, January 9th… More dates below!

Also in January, STEREOPTICON will see the light of day at last! My side project with Grammy® winning guitarist Gary Lucas is in the can and will be available through the Cosmic Trigger label.

My dear friend Ann Hampton Callaway and I wrote a new song together that she has been performing at her recent shows in NYC and Chicago. It’s called FULL MOON LOVE and I really think it came out great. You can watch a fan video at this link: www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NzelZG-y-g

My team and I are now booking for 2016! Please let me know where you’d like me to come play! Let’s set up some house concerts while we’re at it.

Keep living and loving,

Jann

South Africa Tour

Hi!

Hope you have been enjoying the summer of 2015! It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me… That’s because I have been hard at work planning my upcoming tour in South Africa and writing for my next album. Do you use iTunes or Apple Music? Find me and listen for free right now! Click here to go there… 

And yes, for the first time in years I decided to take a little time off the road this summer and focus on other parts of my life… I know, not what you expect from me but necessary nonetheless.

Now, on to the important stuff…

I’m so excited to be returning to South Africa (where I spent six years as a boy) for the first time since childhood. I will be playing shows in Johannesburg and in the Cape Town area, details are below… Please, if you have any friends or colleagues there, connect us! I’m still looking to book one or two house concerts during my time there. A couple of the shows are already SOLD OUT or near sellout. Make sure you get your tickets in advance!

Thanks for reading! Make sure you follow me on this journey (back) to Africa by following me at the social links below.

Cheers and happy Labor Day weekend to all in the States!

On the road again

Hi!

I’m excited to let you know I’ve signed with Timezone Records and Kollektour Booking to play a 15 date tour in Germany starting May 15th. Timezone has picked up worldwide distribution for my current album, Mosaic and have added the music video for Make It Better which will be available on SongPool.

I’ve been enjoying my road break at home in New York City and have been working on lots of new music… The recordings I’m working on with guitarist Gary Lucas and writer/executive producer Dan Beck are almost complete and will see a release sometime later this year.

This summer I will be calling on you all to help me raise funds to make my next full length album! As you know, we raised the money for my last two albums, Reverie and Mosaic directly through my web site. This time around we’ll be using a service like Kickstarter or Pledgemusic to make it happen.

If I can raise the money needed we will start recording this Fall and hopefully release the new album first quarter of 2016. With your help this will be possible. I’m really excited to get going on this new project as I’ve got a solid batch of new tunes ready to go. I think you’ll dig the tunes and have already incorporated a couple of them into my set.

Hope you have the chance to enjoy this beautiful weather we’re having and look forward to seeing all my German friends and fans on this upcoming tour!

Cheers,
Jann

I’m off the road for while and am enjoying sleeping in my own bed 🙂 … Playing just a couple of regional shows this season: The first is on Saturday, March 14th at Ethical Brew in Teaneck, NJ. Hiroya Tsukamoto opens… Really excited about this one! Then on April 17thI’ll be back in Washington, DC to play at the Electric Maid for the first time! Hope to see you there, thanks for spreading the word and supporting independent music.

My next tour will be this May/June in Germany… A few dates already announced, please take a look below!

Spring is coming… Hang in there :):):)

Cheers,
Jann

Happy 2015 – Germany, California and China!

Hello 🙂

I’m writing to you from Hamburg, Germany where I’ll be kicking off a six-date tour tomorrow, January 3rd at the famed St. Pauli Museum off the Reeperbahn or the “Kiez” as we call it here. Doors open at 7:30 PM and the show starts at 8:30 PM and a couple of special guests will be joining me. Next week I hit Berlin, Kiel, Barmstedt and am playing a couple of house concerts. I’m heading back to California for a tour later this month, details below.

This past year has been incredibly packed with events that I will not soon forget. Thanks to your votes I won a total of four Independent Music Awards, played shows in a dozen U.S. States, Canada and Europe plus opened and/or performed with artists like Pat Benatar, Bret Michaels, Paula Cole, Hall & Oates’ John Oates, Gary Lucas, Kaki King, Lisa Donnelly, Nancy Nevins amongst others.

Gary Lucas, Dan Beck and I released a new music video, Mary Magdalene benefitting Hurricane Sandy survivors; I was featured in Relix Magazine, mentioned in Rolling Stone and had more songs featured in film and TV. Just three weeks ago I signed a publishing admin deal with Shelly Bay Music and this month my song MAKE IT BETTER will be released in China through Bongo Boy Records!

The shows you see listed below will be my last for a while… I’m taking time off from touring this Spring to regroup, finish a couple of recording projects and am scoring music for a new short film. After that I will start working on my fifth studio album, tentatively titled TRAPEZE.

I wish you all the best year of your life, followed by another and another… Looking forward to seeing you on the road and anywhere we can connect.

Love,
Jann
