Bio

ajm 123Andreas Jahn was born in Dallas, Texas. At a very young age, Andreas showed an interest in the piano. Around that time, he discovered Garageband, and began laying down simple but creative songs using the built-in available loops. He began taking piano lessons at the age of 5. Graduating from Garageband to the more professional DAW, Logic Express, he progressed in his song writing by creating original compositions, with the occasional guest musician adding to his sound.

Being home schooled allowed Andreas to explore his musical talents whenever an idea came into his head. To date, he has hundreds of original songs to his credit. He is pretty much a one man team, like a young mad scientist at his computer, laying down layer upon layer to create complex and interesting material.

Growing up listening to bands like The Beatles and the more obscure XTC shaped his songwriting. When on a roll, Andreas can kick out several new songs a week. Locked up in his home studio for hours at a time, it isn’t uncommon for him to emerge with a finished composition containing 60 or more tracks, all engineered, mixed and produced by himself.

In 2014, he release his first album, Beyond Slumber, to the public as a digital-only download from sites like CD Baby and the iTunes Music Store.

This year, brings a new album, his second, entitled Trampolines. Unlike his first, this one is available on physical media compact disc at CD Baby.

NEW!!  Andreas’ has released two more albums in 2015 that you can listen to and download for free from SoundCloud.

In 2014, Andreas was featured in an article entitled Modern-Day Mozart, in the Lakewood/East Dallas Advocate magazine. Andreas has also taught several digital recording workshops for the Lakewood Piano Lab.

Andreas is currently attending Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, in Dallas, Texas. He is in the “music” cluster as a classical and jazz pianist. He is a member of the “Jazz MIDI Ensemble”, and intends to pursue a carrier in music in the future.
