Shaun Jansen is a pop rock singer/songwriter and guitarist from Singapore. His live acoustic style features a dynamic mix of smooth, emotive vocals over raw guitar rhythms.
Growing up in the 90’s and early 2000’s, his musical style stems from the singalong songs of bands like Oasis, Maroon 5 and OneRepublic.
In 2010, Shaun and his band, Supernova, represented Singapore with performances as part of ‘The Journey of the Youth Olympics Flame’ in Senegal, Africa, and went on to win notable music competitions such as the NEA Eco Music Challenge in 2012.
Shaun’s achievement as first runner-up in Singapore reality TV singing competition ‘The Final 1‘ in 2013 then opened up new opportunities as he progressed to perform on bigger stages such as the National Day Parade, President’s Star Charity as well as in Singapore Day in Sydney.
Backed by his years in rock bands and now as an acoustic solo artist, Shaun brings to the stage both energetic performances and delicate conversations in his music.
In 2021, Shaun released his first two singles, ‘Silhouette’, and ‘Circles’, and in 2022, the soul pop/rock ballad ‘Adventure’ and most recently ‘Take My Darkness’ a gospel-inspired rocker setting the stage for more original music in the year.
