New Album




I’m so excited to release my debut album Take A Chance on May 30th. Each song chosen for this album contains a story from my life; told in a way that is both relatable and personal to the listener. Take a Chance is about finding one's way, and taking risks to achieve your own happiness. It is an album written to inspire self discovery and growth. I hope that the album will encourage the listener to find trust, believe in themselves and never give up.

All songs were written, performed, and produced by myself, recorded in my home studio. They were mixed and mastered by Phonicalab, which is also a home studio, based in Lucerne.

    Release day


Singer-songwriter Jana Vollenweider, known as J.Ann, was born in Lucerne, Switzerland in 1997. As an independent artist, she does everything from songwriting to recording and sound design, getting assistance only for mixing and mastering. J.Ann puts her heart and soul into her music projects. Every song she produces is very personal and authentic.

At the age of seven I wanted to learn to play the piano. My motivation was to accompany my singing, which was strange, since I didn't even sing at that time. I started taking piano lessons. Years later I decided to take singing lessons, too. I made my wish come true by writing my first song, finding a way to express my thoughts and feelings at the age of 15. Even today the piano is fundamental to me, because I write my songs by playing on the piano while singing. Since the beginning of my songwriting journey I have found it really important to write meaningful lyrics. I create the melody, lyrics and piano accompaniment simultaneously, because I believe they have to work together to create different moods for each song.

- J.Ann

J.Ann attended a talent school where she was able to combine music with education. Today she is an undergraduate student of speech and language therapy. J.Ann received international airplay which garnered positive feedback from influential radio and TV presenters, especially in the UK, with her debut album Take A Chance which was released in the spring of 2020.
