About Steve Jansen

British percussionist Steve Jansen is best known as the co-founder of Japan. After the group's breakup, he continued working with his ex-bandmates on projects, including Worlds in a Small Room and the Dolphin Brothers' Catch the Fall, both made with Richard Barbieri. Jansen also worked with several Japanese artists, most notably Yukihiro Takahashi. The members of Japan (minus Rob Dean) reunited for Rain Tree Crow, which released a self-titled album in 1991. In 2005, Jansen, David Sylvian, and Burnt Friedman formed Nine Horses, which released two albums and an EP. Jansen later issued his debut solo album, Slope (2007), collaborated with Steve D'Agostino and John Foxx for A Secret Life (2009), and released instrumental pieces as digital singles. ~ Paul Simpson
