Rockwood Artist Residencies feature their favorite artists over the course of a few weeks or a month. Jann will be including very recent material that may end up on his upcoming album, which he's working on under the attentive ears of multi-platinum award winning producer David Bendeth (Bruce Hornsby, Paramore, Papa Roach, Elvis Presley).

Jann says, "The Rockwood has been a haven in New York City to my band and me. Both Rockwood Stage 1 and 2 have presented my shows. This venue is THE place in New York City for a singer-songwriter. I've seen folks from James Maddock to Elliott Murphy (who I've opened for) at the Rockwood.  I've discovered up-and-coming artists here including Mieka Pauley and Amber Rubarth. One of Norah Jones' other projects has been on the bill with me here. I'm very thankful to the Rockwood has given me an opportunity to have this residency." 

Jann is also opening for The Yardbirds/Renaissance co-founder Jim McCarty & the Strawbs John Hawken at the Iridium, 1650 Broadway, in New York City, for two shows on May 2.  The three performed together this past October in Toronto and Hamilton, Canada.

Jann's recent releases Reverie (2008) and Sacrifice EP (2010) continue to build attention. His songs have been heard on the GRAMMY-nominated Healthy Food For Thought (2010) compilation, and in film and TV, including Warner Bros. Dead Broke featuring Paul Sorvino and MTV Cribs. 

He has opened for/performed with a wide range of artists including, Brett Dennen, Rusted Root, Vonda Shepard, Rosanne Cash, Roger McGuinn, Renaissance and Annie Haslam, Suzanne Vega, and the legendary Les Paul. On his recent tour in England Jann presented a Masterclass on DIY Touring and Collaboration at the Liverpool Institute for the Performing Arts in the Paul McCartney Auditorium.

Born in Germany and raised in Kenya and South-Africa he first came to the U.S. as an exchange student, now living in NYC. As an actor/singer he performed in Broadway tours of Jekyll & Hyde, The Who's Tommy and the European tour of Jesus Chris Superstar.
