“Klose has a fabulous, wide-ranging voice with an individual style… 4 STARS” – Mike Barnes, MOJO Magazine

“Jann Klose was born in Germany and raised in South Africa but his music is all-American pop rock of the finest order…Combine his songwriting and singing chops with his artful experimentation— songs include flavors of reggae, punk, and more—and you understand why Klose moves ever closer to pop-rock eminence.” – Nancy Dunham, RELIX Magazine

“Singer-songwriter Klose shows he can create diverse new tunes that rival those of such masters as (Tim) Buckley. His songs offer hard-to-resist energy, memorable melodies and intelligent, well-crafted lyrics.” – Paul Freeman, San Jose Mercury News

“This German born, African-raised singer-songwriter does sentimentality with sincerity and grace … There’s little out of his range.” – Kenneth Partridge, M Music & Musicians

“Klose wins over the listener with his soaring voice, which may well be a staple of chamber pop for a long time to come.” – Alexander F. Remington, Washington Post
