JANN KLOSE’S DOING TIME TO AIR NATIONWIDE ON THE RESTAURANT ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK


Heralded Music Video To Reach an Audience of 13 Million Monthly Viewers

Jann Klose’s video for “Doing Time” will be airing to an audience of more than 13 million monthly viewers on The Restaurant Entertainment Network located in over 1,000 Quick Serve Restaurants (Arby’s, Carl’s, Hardee’s, McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Taco Bell) across the country.

indoorDIRECT’s Vice President of Strategic Alliances, Jonna Birgans, said that “Jann Klose is an up-and-coming artist and we are happy to provide new artists such as Jann exposure to millions of our viewers at restaurants nationwide.” Birgans elaborated, “We pride ourselves on not just working with national and international acts such at Weezer and the Parlotones but also unsigned bands and artists that our viewers would enjoy hearing while they are enjoying a meal at the nation’s leading quick service restaurants.”

The music video for "Doing Time," a fan favorite from Jann Klose’s critically acclaimed album, REVERIE, was produced by the New York Film Academy on the streets of New York City. Producer Tamara Gunashvili and director Addison Neville incorporated Stop-Motion style filming, using state-of-the-art photographic equipment. Over 9000 individual pictures were taken during the two-day shoot 4000 ended up in the 3 minute 40 second long video. Members of Jann's band (bassist Chris Marolf; accordionist Lars Potteiger; violinist Leah Potteiger; drummer Patrick Carmichael) are also seen in the video that was shot entirely in Manhattan at three different locations, including Union Square.

The song “Doing Time” resonated quite nicely with music critics, as well: The Washington Post's Alexander Remington picked the song as his favorite, “His songs' immaculately tasteful orchestration sounds like Eric Matthews crossed with Nick Drake, best of all on the waltz 'Doing Time.' Klose wins over the listener with his soaring voice, which may well be a staple of chamber pop for a long time to come.”

Jann produced "Doing Time." Stewart Lerman (The Roches, Loudon Wainwright III, Dar Williams, and films THE AVIATOR and THE LIFE AQUATIC) mixed it.

Jann's music has also been featured on the GRAMMY-nominated album, HEALTHY FOOD FOR THOUGHT: GOOD ENOUGH TO EAT, MTV's Cribs, the soundtrack to the Paul Sorvino film Dead Broke. He's performed in touring companies of Broadway shows: The Who's Tommy, Jekyll & Hyde, and Jesus Christ Superstar. He also has released three albums and two EPs, which can be heard around the world, on over 140 FM stations and Sirius XM in the U.S., the BBC in England to Prambors Radio in Indonesia. In less than three months thousands have viewed (and reposted) Jann's remarkable video for DOING TIME, now featured on AOL/Spinner. Watch the video at http://www.youtube.com/jannklose.

A citizen of the world, he's lived on three continents, making his home in the melting pot that is New York City. Before coming to the United States as an exchange student in Cleveland, Ohio, he lived in Germany, Kenya, and South Africa. As a singer/songwriter, his music reflects this lyrically, melodically, rhythmically and in his choice of eclectic instruments and musicians.

Jann will be touring this spring, starting April 29 in New York City, with Midwestern dates in May.
