Jamie Janover is recognized as a true innovator. His considerable creative output includes: being a multi-instrumentalist and master of the ancient percussion stringed instrument called the hammered dulcimer, inventing and performing on an instrument he calls the “mini-kit” (a miniature amplified drum kit), playing pyrocussion (custom fire-drums) and creating the RealmsMobile (a recumbent tricycle with the mini-kit attached, enabling him to ride and play drums simultaneously).
Jamie’s current main project is a duet called Janover & reSunator with vocalist and keyboard player Lezlie Sunshine, who sings in both English and Chinese. By combining recent innovations in modern technology with the wisdom of ancient instruments, Janover & reSunator achieve a balance between the electronic and the acoustic, the male and the female, to create a resonant unified field: music reflective of the nature of modern times.
For many years Janover has maintained a rigorous international touring schedule and plays with several acts including: PRAANG (w/ EOTO & Steve Kimock), ZILLA (w/ Michael Travis from SCI and VibeSquaD) and the Everyone Orchestra (w/ a revolving lineup). Jamie is also a veteran of hundreds of collaborations and guest appearances, having performed on stage with artists including: Phish, Bela Fleck, The String Cheese Incident, G. Love & Special Sauce, Stanley Jordan, Umphrey’s McGee, Keller Williams, Beats Antique, Emancipator, Random Rab and many others. In the past 2 years alone Janover & reSunator have performed at over 50 festivals globally in countries as diverse as New Zealand, Portugal, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Australia, Egypt, Canada & the USA.
When not playing music, you can find Janover connecting dots around the world in his extensive travels and collaborations in multiple creative realms including creating stunning images as a professional photographer and making sculpture works using natural found objects. Janover’s life-long interest in the true nature of reality and the universe brought him to become an official emissary for scientist Nassim Haramein of the Resonance Project, delivering fascinating presentations on the physics of unified field theory. Jamie Janover also produces music events including an annual electronic music festival in Colorado called SONIC BLOOM.
