Artist - Jann Klose
For those not in the know, Jann Klose is a pop singer-songwriter, who has released seven solo albums and two EPs thus far.
Klose was raised in Kenya, South Africa, Germany, and northeast Ohio and is an ambassador for Desmond Tutu's TutuDesk campaign.
He is also the singing voice of Tim Buckley in the movie 'Greetings from Tim Buckley', starring Penn Badgley and Imogen Poots, released by Focus Features and Tribeca Film.
His songs have been heard on the Grammy-nominated "Healthy Food For Thought" compilation as well as MTV Cribs and movies 'Dead Broke' (Warner Bros) featuring Paul Sorvino and 'A Venue For The End Of The World' featuring Dick Cavett and Ian Anderson.
He has performed as an actor and singer in touring companies of Broadway musicals, including Jesus Christ Superstar, Jekyll & Hyde, and The Who's Tommy as well as made for TV movies, voice overs and commercials.
The brand new album from Jann Klose is entitled In Tandem and amongst it's wondeful selection of 13 tracks, also features some contributions from some delightful female voices.
1. "Love High"
2. "Dear Mel"
3. "Don't Give Up" (featuring Annie Haslan)
4. "What Have You Got To Say?"
5. "Never Fall"
6. "You Are I (Cosmic Love)" (featuring Tamara Dey)
8. "Pour The Champagne" (featuring Karen Zoid)
9. "After The Last"
10. "Take Me 2 Forever"
11. "What It Is"
12. "Win This Fight" (featuring the RJ Benjamin Voices)
13. "Wedding Song" (Hochzeitslied English Version)
In Tandem begins with the uplifting joy of "Love High" and backs that up seamlessly with the jaunty pop bounce of "Dear Mel" and then comes a rather engrossing rendition of Peter Gabriel's beautiful "Don't Give Up" (featuring Annie Haslan).
The accusatory "What Have You Got To Say?" is next and backed by the mid-tempo ballad "Never Fall." Featuring Tamara Dey, one of my favorites here is the mid-'70s vibe to "You Are I (Cosmic Love)" which is followed by the German-sung ballad "Hochzeitslied."
The pop rock extravaganza of "Pour The Champagne" (featuring Karen Zoid) is definitely going to please everyone who tunes in and that's backed by the storytelling of "After The Last."
The fun, playful beats of "Take Me Z Forever" are wonderful to behold also, and then comes another stand out favorite (for me, at least) in the shape of the The Proclaimers-esque "What It Is."
The album then, sadly, rounds out with both "Win This Fight" (featuring the RJ Benjamin Voices) and then the piano ballad "Wedding Song" (Hochzeitslied English Version).
