Who I am

J.A.N. is a project of singer/songwriter Jan Hoekstra.

Jan started making music at a young age. At the age of seven he started playing piano and a lot of instruments followed.

Soon the urge came to write his own music.
first in English, later in Dutch and finally in Frisian. A language that is closest to him.

J.A.N. makes atmospheric songs. With sometimes personal lyrics, things to think about or lyrics with a little wink.
