Donata Jan Trio - an international jazz/neo soul/pop project playing songs about life`s intimate stories, a cozy and" homie" performance that makes you close your eyes and remember, feel, dream, miss, laugh and cry. With experience in different projects and musical styles, we have joined our forces and created our own colourful style, that has something for almost every taste. Feel free to watch the video and get to know us and our music :)
We are a contemporary Jazz-Trio based in Hannover, Germany and together we have worked on our songs and our sound for several years. Now we´re ready to share our first album with the world and with you! The album is a tribute to two different homes: To Lithuania and Germany. To Jazz and Pop. To Butterflies and Heartbreaks. To a voice and a piano. To acoustic and experimental sounds. Unfortunately, we live in times where a finished album doesn't bring you far without a proper budget for promotion and marketing. We need support to be able to bring our music further than our own sound systems and this is (hopefully) where you come in!
What is the project goal and who is the project for?
If you like Jazz, Pop and Soul, you came to the right place. And if you don`t, maybe give it a try anyways, you never know :) We can be great companions in your car on your road trip, but we can create a nice athmosphere at your dinner party, too. We can be there in good or bad times and make sure you're not alone. And we sure can offer a beat for you to groove to just for fun.
Why would you support this project?
If you believe in our music as much as we do, you should consider supporting our project. If you heard us and liked it and if you want to be a part of our first big step towards getting heard by more people we´d be happy to have you on board. The best thing: everything is already recorded! We need your help to publish and promote the album to get it out to as many future fans as possible :)
How will we use the money if the project is successfully funded?
The money is needed for: 1. Artworks 2. Website 3. Fotos and Video 4. Promotion and advertisement for our first CD (agency) 5. In case we exceed our goal - that extra money would finance the vinyl edition
Who are the people behind the project?
Donata Jan - an ambitioned pianist, singer and vocal coach from Lithuania that has been living in Germany for almost 7 years. (Lutz Krajenski, James Simpson, Donny Montell, Sasha Song, etc.) Matthias "Maze" Meusel - one hell of a groove machine on drums and production (Take 6 , Kelly Family, Till Brönner, MUNIQUE, late Roger Cicero, etc.) Hervé Jeanne - all about that bass! Also owner of a great recording studio that has become home to our band (Glenn Miller Orchestra, Take 6, New York Voices, Sascha, late Roger Cicero , etc.)
If you are wondering where we got the money to record and produce our album in the first place, "Initiative Musik" is the answer! This german association kindly granted us the funding we needed to end up where we are now.
