Janne Mark has established herself as a unique and engaging vocalist/composer both in Denmark and abroad with the 2017 release of her album 'Pilgrim' on the German jazz label ACT. Musically she writes ‘hymns for the here and now’, drawing on the freedom of jazz and the breadth of the Scandinavian folk tradition.

“this record will promote their fame far and beyond, for with her crystal clear voice, with all the intensity that its feigned simplicity conjures, it goes straight to the soul”

Leipziger Volkszeitung on the album ‘Pilgrim’

Janne Mark's background as a singer-songwriter, alongside her work as a singer/music consultant in Brorson's Church in Nørrebro, Copenhagen, has enabled her to create a new meditative hymn style with a characterful simplicity and a focus on melody. The resulting music is a haven of peace and quiet in a world beset with restlessness and uncertainty.
