Location: Brooklyn, NY
Bio: Jon began playing guitar and writing music at the age of nine. He grew up in Niskayuna, NY where he made a name for himself musically. He was invited to perform at the annual holiday show at the Empire State Plaza in Albany, NY and sang the national anthem at the 20,000 seat Pepsi Arena. In 2008, Jon recorded a self-titled album, and received critical acclaim. In 2010 Jon formed his band, which includes members Sam Merrick, Chris Kelly and Dominic Fallacaro. They’re signed to Super Duper Records and recently released a full length album entitled “Late Night Champ” which can purchased on iTunes here.
Why they’re our band of the week: We first heard of Jon back in 2012, when we stumbled upon his album “Late Night Champ”. We instantly fell in love. His voice is so soulful and his lyrics are honest and easy to relate to. His current single “Take My Time” is one of personal favorites. You can’t help but feel the emotion in Jon’s voice. Fans of John Mayer, Vampire Weekend, Maroon5, and The Beatles will adore Jon! On May 15th and 16th Jon will be performing with James McCartney (Paul McCartney’s son) in the US. Stay tuned for more tour dates!
