Early Musical Life : Jon started to drum on anything he could get his hands on. His parents wanted him to have some kind of instrument to learn. With classical roots in his family, Jon’s parents wanted him to play the French Horn and the violin, but his heart wasn’t in it.

Music he heard while growing up : All Kinds. His grandparents owned a record store and he was able to hear classic artists like Earth Wind & Wire, The Whispers, Stevie Wonder, The Bee Gees, Duran Duran and more.

Big break : After sending in so many demos to other record companies, Jon dropped a tape off at Yab Yum Records. It got to Tracey Edmonds. An hour later, Jon was back at Yab Yum Records having a nice long meeting. Hours later, he signed his first record contract with Yab Yum.
