A native of Jakarta, Indonesia, Hans started learning classical piano at the age of seven and began writing his own songs when he was thirteen years old. Upon graduating high school in 2013, he made the move to the United States to pursue his education. During his time in college, Hans continued to write songs and performed at local open-mikes in the Bay Area, Boston, and New York. He performed his original music for the first time at the Bitter End in the historic Greenwich Village of New York City.
In 2018, The Berklee College of Music alum moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue a career as a writer, and recently put out his independent debut single titled “Like Me That Way”, an unapologetically queer dance-pop take on unrequited love. He wrote the entirety of the song during his last semester of college in Boston, and immediately started working on it with producer Adam John as soon as he got to Los Angeles.
Other than his love for music, Hans is extremely passionate about human rights in the LGBTQI community. Growing up in a Catholic household in Jakarta, he feels very strongly about increasing awareness of equal rights and treatment in Indonesia, and expanding the country’s notions of love, kindness, acceptance, and tolerance through music.
