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).
Janover’s main musical project is as part of a duo called Janover & reSunator with vocalist, lyricist 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 touring schedule with multiple acts including: PRAANG (w/ EOTO & Steve Kimock), ZILLA (w/ Michael Travis from SCI and VibeSquaD) the Everyone Orchestra (w/ a revolving lineup) and shows with Karsh Kale. 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 more than 50 festivals globally, in countries as diverse as New Zealand, Portugal, Costa Rica, Indonesia, Australia, Egypt, Mexico, Canada & in the USA from Maine to Hawaii.
When not playing music, you can find Janover connecting dots around the world in his extensive international 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.
