UK Artist of the Week: Jan Roth

Jan Roth released his debut album this week entitled L.O.W. It’s out on Sinnbus records, home to many cutting edge German bands and, most recently, UK alt folk duo Rue Royale.

Jan’s music crosses many genres from jazz to chamber music, post rock, and everything in between which makes him an intriguing prospect and a brilliant candidate for our Artist of the Week.

Purely instrumental, being an accomplished pianist and clearly influenced by elements of jazz, Jan’s music could be compared to Brad Mehldau. He blends modern alternative sounds with traditional genres, which marks him above the rest as a modern alternative composer. In his native Germany, he’s collaborated with a number of artists like Tim Neuhaus, Clueso, and Max Prosa. L.O.W. however, is just Jan and his inspiration about the world around him.

Jan Roth’s music has a delicate maturity about it. It’s thought provoking without being too avant-garde and, most of all, it’s a joy to listen to. Despite there being no vocals, he conveys his personality brilliantly with the melodies. This is a true talent and one deserving of your time.
