Jann Klose Releases Single Late Summer, Album due November

For immediate release:
JANN KLOSE RELEASES SINGLE LATE SUMMER, ALBUM IN NOVEMBER
(Multi-Cultural Pop Singer-Songwriter Makes New Music Available)

Pop singer-songwriter Jann Klose is releasing new music this season—a single this September and an album in November. The yet-untitled album, which was produced at Hoboken’s Water Music, will have at least a dozen new songs and an instrumental, “Ithaca," which Jann composed for oboe. Titles include "Mother Said, Father Said," "Watching You Go," "All These Rivers," "Doing Time," and “Clouds.”

Part of the record—including the single “Beautiful Dream”/”Hold Me Down”—was produced by Stewart Lerman (Dar Williams, Loudon Wainwright III, “The Aviator,” “A Life Aquatic”). "Beautiful Dream”/”Hold Me Down” is now available for download on eMusic.com, Rhapsody.com, and iTunes.com; it will be on other sites by September 20th.  A CD single will also be available.

After hearing “Beautiful Dream,” Sirius Radio's Pop Programming Director Kid Kelly said, "I find Jann's music super-engaging."  Bruce Haring, who runs the DIY Convention and booked him at New York City's Book Expo in Central Park, stated, “'Beautiful Dream' is delightful."   Former Renaissance singer Annie Haslam is also a fan, “'Beautiful Dream' has a lush soaring orchestral feel with shades of early ELO.   Jann's powerful voice and delivery are laced with purposeful lyrics—a much needed talent!"

Jann is performing one-off shows in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New York and New Jersey up through the album's release, and will expand dates in November through his more popular markets in the Mid West, Middle Atlantic, and New England.  In December he'll do a limited tour of Germany.  In January 2008, he'll perform his first solo Southern California dates, including a performance at NAMM. In between these dates, he’ll perform assorted one-offs and college shows, He'll continue to tour through 2008.

Because of Jann’s multi-cultural background and varied taste in music, it's challenging to find a single artist for comparison. He was born in Mannheim, Germany, raised in Nairobi, Kenya and Johannesburg, South Africa until age 10. His family then returned to Hamburg, Germany. He came to Cleveland, Ohio as an exchange student, returned to Germany for a year to complete his civil service, and, then, started his music career in the States.

Now living in the Bronx, NY, He's released three independent CDs since 1997, ENOUGH SAID, THE STRANGEST THING, and BLACK BOX, plus the digital LIVE AT THE BITTER END. "It's Not The Way" off BLACK BOX EP was included on SAAB’s 60th anniversary CD in France, and on the CD, PRAMBORS HITS 3, in Indonesia. The title track "Black Box" was licensed to the Warner Bros. Home DVD movie “Dead Broke,” starring Paul Sorvino, Jill Hennessy.
