Jann Klose And Annie Haslam Team Up For A Charity Single


Don’t Give Up

They shared the stage before, Jann Klose and Annie Haslam, but as far as studio recordings go, the singers have never joined their distinctive voices. But now, working on a follow-up to 2013’s "Mosaic" – or his 2016’s joint effort with Gary Lucas – Jann reached out to the RENAISSANCE warbler with a proposition to lay down a Peter Gabriel classic.

“Don’t Give Up” is a charity single, with proceeds benefitting Desmond Tutu’s TutuDesk Foundation, so there’s much more to the cover than meets the eye. As for the eye-candy of the artwork lettering, it’s Annie’s creation.

Klose explains:

“We had wanted to record a song together for a long time… Annie actually asked me to ‘write something like ‘Don’t Give Up’ for us’ and at some point – we were hanging out after a show we did together at the Sellersville Theater in Pennsylvania last December – I suggested, why not record the Peter Gabriel song? It’s a great song that lends itself to a duet perfectly, fits our musical styles and it has a message that speaks to the times we live in now.”

Out now on digital platforms, “Don’t Give Up” is a wonderful take on a genuine gem.
