... is a singer / songwriter who plays alternative acoustic music - utilising his unique sound to explore dark, and light, melodies.
He grew up in Sheffield (UK) and formed his first gigging band in Leeds. He then moved to Norwich, playing in several further bands, before a brief stint as an international artist whilst living in Japan for a few months.
Jon currently plays gigs primarily in Leeds and the surrounding areas, often dazzling the audience with incomprehensible mumbling between songs. His first EP has been likened to John Martyn, Nick Drake and Neil Young, and captures all the emotive spirit possible in this age of time pressures and distraction.
