Jaan’s original music conveys a unique palette of emotional colors, full of caring, insight, compassion and truth.
Jaan released Change in April 2014, largely influenced by '90s grunge and indie rock power trios. In 2015-2016 Jaan performed live with his band Landheer & the Storm, a rock trio that blended his laid back vocals with hard-hitting grooves. Currently, Jaan has returned to performing solo as an acoustic singer-songwriter, continuing to share his personal insights from the heart. In 2017, Jaan released his first completely self-produced album Love, a raw and highly personal compilation of acoustic recordings that touch on the struggles of addiction, dealing with setbacks, and learning to believe in oneself. While living in Eugene, Oregon, Jaan released his EP entitled Human Being, a somber look at the challenges of living in a new environment, as well as the subtle beauty of moving on. With the release of his latest full-length album, Magic, Jaan explores the outer world of living amongst the beauty of nature, contrasted by the challenges of being human and longing for a sense of belonging in this world. Since returning to his hometown of Santa Barbara, California, Jaan released two EPs in 2018. The Miracle State is a compilation of previously released favorites. West Coast Blues tells a story of heartbreak and new beginnings. Jaan is always striving to make new music that comes from the heart, in hopes that it might reach someone who needs to hear it most.
