Year End Shows in FL, NJ, PA, NYC

Hi,

Hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving! My gratitude goes out to everyone that joined us at the shows in Germany over the last couple of weeks… See pic below from the Hamburg show at kukuun with Vincent Golly on drums and Adrian Müller on bass. You all wore us out after playing a total of six encores!!

Please join me for my final shows of 2016. After an incredible year of touring in the U.S., United Kingdom, Canada, Germany and South Africa there is much to celebrate. Following these shows I’ll be taking a road break and begin recording my next solo album. More on all that in early 2017. Stay connected at the social media links below. Again, thank you for all your support, it’s been truly amazing. Hope to see you many of you at these final shows of this very full year.

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.

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 excited to head back to Germany this August for a month long tour and promo trip. See dates below… We have added a third Berlin show to the schedule. Please spread the word! My Montreal debut happens on July 26th, if you have friends there do let them know.

In other international news, I’m part of an Australian documentary called A Venue For The End Of The World, directed by Aidan Prewett. Also featuring Dick CavettD. A. Pennebaker and Ian Anderson the doc will be screening at film festivals. I’m interviewed and there are two songs off my album Reverie in the film. Here’s the trailer on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lnmd7tzKpeQ

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the upcoming shows!

Thanks for reading,
Jann
