Touring throughout the UK, he has appeared at, among others, the Isle of Wight Festival, The Turner Sims Concert Hall and Ullapool Guitar Festival where he co-headlined with fingerstyle legend Preston Reed.
His unique arrangements of ‘Money’ and ‘The Chain’ were featured on the prestigious CandyRat Records racking up tens of thousands of views.
Growing up on the Isle of Wight, Jon was musical from an early age, picking up the piano at age five and then moving on to guitar and
singing at eight. Before he found his acoustic calling, Jon fronted many bands, touring America with hard rock band Zhain and supporting Orbital and Gin Wigmore with Drum n Bass Rock outfit Opinaut.
After equipping himself with a National Diploma at Platform One and a BA Hons in Music from Southampton University, he has now built up strong foundations in Surrey with multi award-winning private functions, in-demand guitar tuition and highly recommended session work.
Jon’s next project is a collaboration with fellow fingerstyle guitarist Daryl Kellie and was inspired by a short musical tour on a narrow boat along the River Thames last summer. This six-day journey resulted in a tentrack album drawing influences from fingerstyle, folk and jazz. ‘Set Adrift’ is due out in spring 2017 followed by a UK tour.
