JAANVI GURUNG MUSIC
SINGER - SONGWRITER - COMPOSER
Jaanvi Gurung is a 14-year-old singer/songwriter hailing from Longmont, Colorado. Strictly trained in classical piano from the age of four, she began playing gigs and shows all over Colorado, becoming involved with RAMP (Rising Artists Mentorship Program) shortly after. Gurung was invited to play alongside the people of The Tale Spinner Lounge, ultimately becoming the youngest performer of the group and garnering a large fan base through these sold out shows. She was also invited to co-teach a piano and orchestral masterclass to the students of her district.
Though she is classically trained, the genre she prefers to play ranges from Folk to Indie to Soul and everything in between. Along with playing a diverse range of genre's, Gurung also likes to incorporate guitar and ukulele in her songs, playing piano and cello in her school's symphonic orchestra.
Since Gurung began playing music, she has composed and written a large number of songs and sonatas, each with a distinct and recognizable yet unique sound. Her moving vocals and lyrics are purposefully constructed to tell honest stories from the heart. Her diverse style showcases many different instruments and dynamics, with each song proving a show worth watching.
Jaanvi recently started playing shows with drummer Brandon Hayes, though she does perform solo often, performing mainly in the Fort Collins and Boulder areas with her keyboard and her vocals

Classically trained and soulfully inclined, Colorado singer-songwriter Jaanvi Gurung combines alt-rock, folk, blues, and soul in songs that soar with a hopeful conviction that is grounded in personal truth. Her originals range from lighthearted to melancholy, all conveying a sense of understanding, intensity, and composed musicianship of an artist beyond her years. A powerful and nuanced singer, accomplished multi-instrumentalist, and articulate lyricist, she addresses both the political and the personal with equal sensitivity and virtuosity.
Now age 14, Jaanvi has studied piano from age four and has been composing since. She plays orchestral cello and bass, but backs herself primarily on keyboard, with the occasional addition of guitar and ukulele. In addition to her solo pursuits, Jaanvi fronts Northern Colorado band The Saturday Tides.
Her original track Glory Song is featured in a new video as well as on her upcoming album, Mercury Minded. It exemplifies her combination of social conscience with engaging honesty and compelling expression. She says, “When I penned Glory Song, I realized the gravity of dismay, violence, and disappointments in the world. Everyone has a voice, and it is only when you choose to acknowledge that voice, do you choose to work towards a better tomorrow.”
Jaanvi enjoys frequent media coverage in Colorado and online, and has played prominent venues throughout Colorado, including the famed Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Colorado State University Stadium, FoCoMX, and Loveland’s Rialto Theater. Her musical associations include the Rising Artist Mentorship Program (RAMP) and music therapy charity Blue Star Connection.
"For a child of the mountains, you'd sure lost your soul;
and someone's gotta help me cause I can't go home alone."
- Jaanvi Gurung, "Swallow"
