Biography

I'm a 28-year-old singer-songwriter from Switzerland. I've been playing and singing for ten years, playing gigs in Switzerland. My passion and time are dedicated to writing songs in the folk and reggae genre. My first Solo-CD "BAREFOOT" was recorded in January 2006 with a live band and was a low budget production. A friend of mine from Sao Paolo joined us with his brazilian violin, called "Rabecca", which made the songs with the band really intense. In February 2010 I recorded a new album with the Reggae-Ska-Band Kalles Kaviar. Soon I want to record a new EP with my folksongs. My music is available on iTunes and GreatIndie. And of course on CdBaby. Thank you so much for your support. It's for the love of music.

Lyrics

Strawberry

Written By: Jana Kouril

It's hours after after-noon
it already feels like this
you left too soon

I'm high on you but always down

Always floating above the ground
in a crystal clear puddle of sound
the whistling wind is in the trees
and there's a hurricane coming in
from overseas

Have another glass
take another sip
we can make this last
and who said strawberries grow fast

It's hours after midnight
and all the past year's wrongs turn into right
with my hands tight to the chair
and my feet only reaching air
only reaching air

Have another glass
take another sip
we can make this last
and who said strawberries grow fast

Have another glass
take another sip
we can make this last
and who said strawberries grow fast

Priceless

Written By: Jana Kouril

No you won’t crawl back
without listening to my word
You won’t break my spine
without being hurt
Well you’re wrong and you’re right
I ain’t gonna fight with you
‘Cause what thrilled me once kills me now

Cause I feel priceless today
I know I'm worth it all
But from you came not even one excuse
you were just too weak
And tasted too cheap on my tongue

You know when it’s all fucked up
it still can get worse
And me with my tragic sense of humor I see our connection in reverse
So go on with your sleepy eyes
go on sleeping with your potential bride
But remember when you wake up
I won’t be at your side

I feel priceless today...
I know I’m worth it all….

I’m a volcano I’m heating up inside
All my energy is boiling up so welcome to my fire
Did you think your helplessness would bring me down on my knees
Well I didn’t come here to say thank you
I didn’t come here to say please
