Growing up in South Louisiana with no natural push or interest in playing music, Jon never imagined becoming a musician, much less doing it for a living. His parent’s gift of an Ibanez acoustic guitar for his high school graduation was so out of the blue that Jon nearly pawned it to get what every 18-year-old fresh out of high school needs. Cash!
Jon never stepped into that pawnshop, but rather began to learn how to play this foreign instrument. Opportunities opened up to work with producers Mike Busbee (Rascal Flatts, Katy Perry, Switchfoot, Lady Antebellum) on one of his first independent albums and Cary Pierce (Jackopierce, Chris Tomlin, Jack Ingram) on his two latest full length projects. This gave Jon the chance to grow and learn from pros, eventually finding his own voice as a songwriter and artist releasing five albums to date.
Jon signed with Universal Music-Brentwood Benson Music as a songwriter in 2006 and his songs have found placements on Chris Tomlin’s Grammy nominated and RIAA Gold selling See The Morning album, ABC’s Private Practice, Sixsteps Record’s Passion-Everything Glorious CD, The Museum’s (BEC Records) Let Love Win album, and WOW Hits 2011.
Jon parted ways with Universal Music in 2010 and recently signed as an artist/songwriter with BE Music and Entertainment. He is currently playing concerts and events nation-wide and writing for a forthcoming project.
Jon and his family live in Dallas, TX where he is the Worship Leader at Watermark Community Church.
