Janne Saar: “For me music is not about success it’s about touching people”
June 28, 2011. Janne Saar has the amiability to grant a small interview for all the friends of Pep1000 channel. Thanks Janne!!
Pep1000: What do you think that someone who lives to 3.000 km from Estonia should be precisely the administrator of a channel of spreading of the Estonian music in english?
Janne: I think it´s excellent. Estonian language and music is very beautiful and I’m glad that someone is promoting it.
Pep1000: Internet has made possible that great people know your work from the whole world… but many people say to me that they have problems to buy music of Estonian singers from out of Estonia. What do you think about this?
Janne: I know it´s hard to get Estonian music but I really hope it get´s better.
Pep1000: After finishing a former band of very much success it has been difficult you to do your career in solitarily? Are beginnings hard?
Janne: I believe it´s a journey and I have been searching myself as a musician. Before I was singing other peoples music and I couldn’t really relate to some of the songs. Now I can put much more heart into my work. I think you have to face some difficulties no matter what you do. For me music is not about success it´s about touching people.
Pep1000: You live through long seasons in Los Angeles. How is music understood in America? Is the life of an artist different in Estonia that in The United States?
Janne: It´s very different. The standards here are so high. You have to be excellent at everything you do. In here you cant make it if your only a good singer. You have to have the whole package and luck.
Pep1000: We see that up to the moment you have two albums in solitarily “Millist Armastust” and “Janne unejutud” fairytale CD for children. Lately you have done very much singles. Soon can we wait for a new album?
Janne: I have prepared my album for almost 4 years. Now I’m done with writing the songs and ready for the production process to start. I hope my album will be ready in 2012 but I´m not on a hurry. I want it to be perfect.
Pep1000: With the single “Shiny lights” that was accompanied on an extraordinary video clip on the pure style of the big singers of the European pop it seemed that it was beginning for you great your expansion for Europe that would begin from Germany. What did happen? Will we have occasion to meet of tour out of Estonia?
Janne: This was a very interesting experience and I learned a lot from it. When my music is ready I´m gonna start doing more shows. I´m taking one step at a time and it´s very early to talk about touring.
Pep1000: Is Eesti laul the door of Europa’s entry for a singer? Will you try to appear in a future?. Your already you know that you have quite our support…
Janne: Thank You so much for the support. I really appreciate it! I think Eesti Laul is a fun competition. If everything goes well I´m gonna try next year too. I already have some cool ideas.
Pep1000: Some comment that you want to make, proposed… we listen to you with a lot of interest! Thank you for your words!
Janne: I just wanna say thank you for Josep and all other people who are supporting and enjoying Estonian music . Love to you all!!!
