Jolene Khor is an award winning composer and pianist, attracting recognition for her whimsical and aesthetics driven compositions, reminiscent of the style popularised by studio Ghibli in Japan.

Jolene brings her classical music and jazz training, together with her passion for Japanese and Chinese aesthetics, to create a satisfying blend of East and West, of classical music and popular instrumentation. This passion served her well during her studies when she collaborated with young filmmakers, animators and musicians from the London Film School, Royal College of Arts, Central Saint Martins as well as at the Royal College of Music where she was trained in managing recording sessions. Jolene has also recorded her music at Air Edel, Abbey Road recording studios and the Budapest recording studio.

"A song designed to describe Jolene Khor’s journey to becoming a composer, “Journey” is a triumphant and captivating piece. From the opening moments, you can tell this song tells the tale of an epic adventure."
"In “Journey” the impression is that we are embarking on a pilgrimage of challenges, of love and pain, of mystery and fantasy, but mainly a feeling of accomplishment, after having followed a long path to the desired destination."
