Jann Klose & Rebecca Loebe with Special Guest Austen Leathers
Tuesday, February 26, 2013 - 7:00pm doors / 8:00pm show
Jann Klose is currently completing work on the follow up to his critically acclaimed album REVERIE with producers David Bendeth (Paramore, Bruce Hornsby, Elvis Presley) and James Frazee (Esperanza Spalding, Blondie, My Morning Jacket). He's also co-writing songs and performing with Gary Lucas (Captain Beefheart, Jeff Buckley).
Jann is a featured vocalist and guitarist in the upcoming Jeff Buckley biopic GREETINGS FROM TIM BUCKLEY, starring Penn Badgley and Imogen Poots, directed by Dan Algrant. The movie is premiered at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival and was just picked up by Tribeca Films/Focus World.
Jann's music has been heard on the GRAMMY nominated "Healthy Food For Thought" compilation, MTV CRIBS and movies, "Dead Broke" (Warner Bros.) featuring Paul Sorvino. He maintains a steady touring schedule of about 75-100 shows a year in the U.S. and Europe and has opened and performed with a wide range of artists including Brett Dennen, Ben Taylor, Suzanne Vega, Rusted Root, Vonda Shepard, Rosanne Cash, Roger McGuinn, Renaissance and Annie Haslam, Jim (The Yardbirds) McCarty and the legendary Les Paul. As a singer/actor Jann has been seen and heard in Broadway's Jekyll & Hyde as well as touring companies of The Who's Tommy and Jesus Christ Superstar.
A citizen of the world, he has 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 and songwriter, his music reflects this lyrically, melodically, rhythmically and in his choice of eclectic instruments and musicians.
His most recent recordings, REVERIE (2008) and SACRIFICE EP (2010), have earned Jann respect as a singer, musician, songwriter, and someone with a new and viable slant on the music business at a time when the industry is collapsing under its own weight. Jann's approach to fan sourcing of production money and concerts in areas as diverse as Chicago and Germany is creating a "cottage industry" out of popular music. REVERIE was made largely with fan support. Thousands have viewed (and reposted) Jann's remarkable video for DOING TIME, featured on AOL/Spinner.
Writes the Washington Post. "Klose wins over the listener with his soaring voice, which may be a staple of chamber pop for a long time to come."
Rebecca Loebe is a laid-back award-winning indie-folk singer from Atlanta, GA. Since quitting her job as a full-time recording studio engineer in 2006, she has performed 100+ shows per year at colleges, coffeehouses and theaters in over 30 states of the US and in Europe. In the spring of 2011, her performance on the US premiere of "The Voice" impressed celebrity coaches Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine, prompting them both to ask her to work with them.
Although participating in a major network television show gave Loebe's career an undeniable boost, she had already been supporting herself as a fulltime touring indie/roots singing songwriter for 4 years. In the May of 2009 she was honored as a winner of the Kerrville New Folk Songwriting Award, and the next year her full-length album 'Mystery Prize' spent over 2 months on both the US and European Americana Charts. In the UK, Mystery Prize received a 4-star review from Maverick Magazine, which reported the "sophomore album sparkles and bubbles." Ed Muitjens of Johnny's Garden in The Netherlands wrote, "'Mystery Prize' exhales originality and creativity." Of Rebecca herself, TX music critic Jeanna Goodrich said, "Her voice instantly took my breath away; I could tell right from the start: Rebecca Loebe was born for this."
