Jan Felipe was born in 1984 in Rio de Janeiro and spent his childhood and teenage years between France and Brazil. He writes melancholic pop songs with Portuguese and French vocals and his songs are influenced by indie-rock, trip-hop artists and brazilian composers like Portishead, Radiohead, Björk, Jeff Buckley, Elliot Smith, Chico Buarque, Emilie Simon, Los Hermanos, Camille or Massive Attack. Although living in Brazil, Jan Felipe doesn't know how to play Samba and may be losing his French. Over the last four years he has played in several indie bands from Rio de Janeiro. In 2006 he started to compose and sing his own songs, and since then Jan Felipe produces his music as a solo artist. More information about Jan Felipe can be found on his myspace site.
