Janna Pelle is a classically trained pianist-turned DIY Pop performer combining elements of rock, soul, and dance into her theatrical live performances, based in NYC.
Janna’s “Key Change,” is a concept album illustrating the evolution of the keyboard instrument from harpsichord to synthesizer. With each track on the album performed with a different keyboard instrument (i.e., harpsichord, harmonium, Wurlitzer), Pelle demonstrates the timelessness of pop music. She was inspired by David Byrne’s book, “How Music Works,” one of the main focuses of the book being on how music has changed through history due to the spaces it is designed to be performed in.
Janna recently released the music video for the first single off of “Key Change,” ‘City Life,’ collaborating with virally-famous body paint artist, Trina Merry.
