Singer/Songwriter Jann Klose Honors Manager Gary Salzman with Isolation Music Video for ‘Pilot Light’

Rock Cellar Magazine

“Pilot Light” is a new song from singer/songwriter Jann Klose, who premiered a very special music video for the track in early May.

Filmed in isolation by Klose and his band mates, the video is dedicated to Klose’s manager, Gary Salzman, who passed away in late March due to complications related to COVID-19.

Said Jann Klose of Salzman, who made significant contributions to the careers of stars like Annie Lennox, David Guetta, Cher, Everything But the Girl and many more:

“Pilot Light” is one of those songs that took on a whole new meaning even for myself when it was released two days after Gary Salzman passed away from COVID-related illness.

I’m still in shock on it. It made a lot of sense to dedicate the song and the video to him. He really was a game changer in many artists’ careers.”

Watch the “Pilot Light” video below:

The musicians accompanying Klose in the video:

Dylan DeFeo – Keys
Michael Also – Electric Guitar
Christopher North – Bass
Rob Mitzner – Drums
