Jan Stella – ‘Fears in Heaven”

Jan Baum klein

Some of you ever heard of the little town Nideggen? Surrounded by the hills of the Rureifel south of Düren and gifted with a pitoresque historic town centre, it seems to be the perfect place to step back from the lunacy of our daily lifes. In this haven of retreat (to be more precise: in his ‘Musikzimmer’) Jan Stella composes and records his delicious mixture of folk pop and indie coolness. Equipped with a setup of just a few microphones, acoustic guitars, basses, percussions and, yes, a set of spoons, he put together ‘Passing Palermo’, his last year’s debut album. Listen to ‘Fears in Heaven’, a folk-funk tune that comprises all of Jan Stella’s finest ingredients: a full-bodied bass, a catchy groove as well as crafty and powerful vocals.

‘Passing Palermore’ was released by Jan Stella using a Creative Commons licence – so feel free to listen to, download and spread it! On August 25th, he will join forces with One Minus One to play his debut gig at the Palette in Eschweiler. Current and former projects that Jan is/was involved with include The Dipes, Wallaby Road and Hipshots.
