Hi there, thank you for checking the Jazz Spotlight!

I’m Yann ilunga, the face and voice behind TJS. I’m a polyglot (I speak Italian, English, French, German and some Finnish) web entrepreneur originally from Locarno, in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland, now living in Helsinki, Finland.

After getting my master’s degree in social sciences with a major in Media & Global Communication, I decided to take the leap and start my journey online.

I help indie artists like you unlock the power of the web to build and grow your audience, market your music and carve your space in the music industry.

I’m also an entrepreneur, podcaster and podcasting coach and work closely with entrepreneurs, coaches and podcasters too. I’m the founder of the world’s largest virtual summit for podcasters – the Podcast Success Summit – and the host of the business show 360 Entrepreneur Podcast.

I’m here to help, so don’t hesitate to connect with me on Twitter (@JazzSpotlight) or get in touch using the contact page.
