From the West to the East

NEXT SHOWS: 9/7 SAN DIEGO, CA – 9/8 ALTADENA, CA – 9/14 AMAGANSETT, NY – 9/18 NEW YORK, NY

Hi,

I’m writing to you from Southern California once again, on the eve of the last weekend of my tour here. It’s been an amazing month on the road and I’ve made many new friends on this journey that has spanned nearly 4000 miles.  A special shout out to Tim Buckley’s bassist Jim Fielder and Larry Beckett, who wrote lyrics for many of Tim’s songs including “Song To The Siren” which is – of course – on MOSAIC (my new album)! Larry and I also wrote two brand new songs together.

This weekend I will be playing a couple more shows in San Diego (9/7) and Altadena (9/8, matinee), both with my friend Rebecca Loebe. Details below.

Upon my return to the East Coast the shows continue with full band gigs at Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, NY on 9/14 and Joe’s Pub in New York City on 9/18! We will be celebrating the release of the new music video for MAKE IT BETTER at the Joe’s Pub show (see pic from shoot below). Our music video director Yael Shulman will be on hand as will special guest Gary Lucas! One of my favorite bands, Barnaby Bright will be on the bill with us at Joe’s Pub. Get tickets at the Joe’s Pub web site here.

MOSAIC is now charting on the AMA radio charts!!! Some of the great stations that are playing songs off MOSAIC are KCSN 88.5 FM (Los Angeles), WFUV 90.7 FM (New York City), KPFK 90.7 FM Los Angeles / 98.7 FM Santa Barbara, KDHX 88.1 FM (St. Louis, MO), KUMD 103.3 FM (Duluth, MN), WVIA (Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, PA), KBAC 98.1 Radio Free Santa Fe, WOMR (Provincetown, MA), WDIY 88.1 Lehigh Valley Community Public Radio. Please contact the station if you are near it and ask them to keep playing MOSAIC 🙂

ACTION MOVES PEOPLE is a new compilation album just released, and I sing the song HUMBLE WISH (which my Renaissance friends Rave Tesar, Dave Keyes, and Frank Pagano, plus Tim Gleeson play on). Both Paul Simon and Ben E. King endorse the charity and album, which you can find on iTunes by clicking here.

Coming up in the fall I will be playing shows in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic and Florida. Returning to Germany to play some shows with my friends … early January and then heading back to the West Coast for another tour.

If you are interested in booking a house concert in any of these regions, please let me know!

Cheers
Jann

Boston, Beacon, DC, PA, NY, NJ + In The Studio

Hi!

Glad you are reading this… amidst all the distractions of your daily life I’m thankful you’ve taken the time to keep up with mine.

This (hot) summer we’re in the studio finishing up work on the new album. Excited to say we finished all tracking work… still doing overdubs and then we go on to mix and master this Fall. Looking at a first quarter 2013 release right now! Above you can see us at Hobo Sound Recording Studios in NJ. From l to r: JK, Rob Mitzner (drums, etc), Lars Potteiger (keys, etc), Chris Marolf (bass, etc) and James Frazee, our producer/engineer.

I’ll explain the et ceteras in the liner notes. The guys sound fantastic. We tracked 5 more songs at that session… they turned out great… I think you’ll love them.

Coming up this weekend I’m playing my debut at Club Passim in Cambridge, MA, Saturday, Aug 11th, 8 pm. This show is very close to being sold out. I highly recommend you make reservations – click here for more info.

The next day I’m back at the Corn Festival in Beacon, NY alongside Pete Seeger and many other talented folks. My set is at 2 pm. Come down to the Beacon Waterfront to listen. More here…

ALBUM PREVIEW SHOWS SEPT in DC, PA, NJ, NY!

Finally making my way back to the Washington, DC area, this time with band in tow… same goes for the other shows the weekend of Sept 6, 7, 8, 9 and then Sept 14th we’re back at The Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett, NY! Please mark your calendars also for Friday, Oct 5th at Rockwood Music Hall. More details below… thanks again for tuning in.

Cheers,

Jann
