Giovanni Jano, better known as JAEL, is a 28 year old Moluccan recording artist,

producer, DJ and vocalist from The Hague, The Netherlands. His passion for music

began from a young age where he grew up in a household surrounded by Moluccan Folk

songs, Moluccan Gospel, Soul/Funk & Japanese Funk. His parents are true Funk/Soul

and R&B lovers and infected JAEL with these influences early on. JAEL embraced

these sounds together with a broad variety of inspiration and combined it into his

own signature sound: from Soulful R&B to Heavy Bass Future Beats with his DJ sets

but also in his productions and songwriting.

He has been showcasing his skills as a DJ, instrumentalist, vocalist and producer

in these different genres all over the world. His favourite artists are: D’Angelo,

Devin Morrison, Dwele, H.E.R, Pino Palladino and many more. JAEL just recently

released his debut album “Half As Much” with features such as Alex Isley, Rae

Khalil (Grammy Winning Artist), Jayla Darden, Phabo, The Kount and more. JAEL has

been credited by Serato.

JAEL is also a member of the LA Based label and community Soulection and is

represented by Studio KOTO, an artist agency, label and management company from

Amsterdam. His debut album “Half As Much” (2021) was released on Studio KOTO. With

his debut album, JAEL demonstrated that he can produce, record, play his own

instruments and sing/write his own songs. JAEL will release a Deluxe Edition of

“Half As Much” very soon. For now, you can catch his live shows with some of the

band members from SMANDEM. Aside from his album, JAEL released a compilation album

with Studio KOTO featuring Latanya Alberto, FS Green, Wantigga and more. Alongside

original music, JAEL released his popular “Remixes & Club Edits” VOL 1 & 2, be on

the lookout for Volume 3!
