My name is Janne Saar and I’m a singer-songwriter from Estonia.
My parents tell me that I started singing before speaking. I wrote my first song at the age of 14 and played violin and piano when I was younger. I’m extremely passionate about singing, songwriting and producing.
When I was 16 I got my first studio experience. I remember seeing the recording studio and thinking I want to learn how to do this. That’s what I do now. I’m a singer-songwriter and I know few things about music production. I have a home studio where I record all my vocals and create music.
My career took off when I was chosen to be in a girls band called Nexus. We had 4 successful years working very hard together. While in the band We won 2 hit songs of the year and one golden record and performed about 600 shows all over Estonia. It was fun and a great learning experience.
When I was 23 I moved to Los Angeles. It was probably the hardest thing I have ever done. I left my family, friends and started fresh.
Since I didn’t know anyone and wanted to create music I decided to learn how to use music software . That opened a totally different world to me. It also made me see that you can learn and do whatever you desire.
Right now I’m working on my new album that has latin bossanova feel to it. I live in the Bahamas and do most of my writing here.
