Shaun Jansen wowed the nation as the runner-up in the reality TV singing competition – The Final 1.
The versatile vocalist/guitarist and songwriter left a lasting impression on TV audience with his good looks and pop rock music style. His charismatic stage presence and memorable rendition of “Sexy and I Know It” won astounding standing ovation from the audience during The Final 1 journey.
Growing up under strong music influences and guidance from his guitarist dad, Shaun enjoys performing musical styles that loosely range the spectrums of folk, blues, pop and rock. He is proficient in the guitar (electric and acoustic), with a good foundation in blues and rock styles. Some of his influences include artists like Aerosmith, Queen, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie ray Vaughan, Third Eye Blind, Bon Jovi, Incubus, The Killers and Maroon 5.
His strong passion for music led to the formation of his band Supernova in 2001, where he took on the role of the lead vocals and guitarist. Supernova grew a stream of steady supporters and recognition through their gigs over the years. Shaun and Supernova represented Singapore with performances in “The Journey of the Youth Olympics Fame” in Senegal, Africa in 2010 and went on to win notable music competitions such as the NEA Eco Challenge Song competition.
The limelight from The Final 1 opens up new opportunities and platforms for Shaun in pursuit of his solo music career as an all-rounded musician.
Shaun’s next goal is to create a successful music career for himself, spreading his music influence locally and regionally.
