Jann Klose’s new album MOSAIC, due June 2013 can easily be called a sonic, lyrical and emotional mosaic from an artist, who is known as one with multi-cultural roots and an equally widely-faceted career and a voice that Public Radio’s Barb Heller says, “could sing the phonebook.”
Born in Kenya, East Africa, Trevor Borden was raised in the bush, an isolated setting that may be the single most influential element to his craft; besides cultivating an idyllic, unadulterated, free childhood, it encouraged sincerity and transparency, along with a good work ethic. His musical pursuits began in High-school when he moved to Lisbon, Portugal. Playing electric guitar in the requisite garage punk band that every budding performer must belong to for a time, Trevor got a taste of the stage in the underground Portuguese rock scene. In 2007 Trevor made another continental jump--this one landing Trevor squarely in the golden light of southern California. The next several years were essential for Trevor as he came into his own as a musician and songwriter. It was during this time that he led his college band, The Way Much, on a 28 state tour and started a smaller side project – The Sounds of Lyon Fell. Both were a step closer to his current solo endeavor. Giants, released January 6th, 2013, blend the intimacy of Trevor's honest songwriting with the energy and power of a full band.
Joshua Danyel knows the exact moment he became a songwriter. “I was seven years old, in second grade, and one day at recess, the girl I had a crush on put her arm around me. That night I wrote my first song.”
Growing up in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles, Josh was surrounded by musical inspiration. “My friend’s dad managed a rehearsal studio. We used to hang out there, play with the instruments, pretend we were Nirvana. Bands would come through and we’d listen to them practice – it was pretty awesome.” When he was 12 years old, he was given an acoustic guitar. “That was it,” he says. “There was no turning back.”
