Not “HEARD” Before: a singer-songwriter with a signature power sound. Hooks, feel and songwriting: Jonathan Auerbach nails it with his Nashville recorded #3 CD-- HEARD (2010), a cache of fresh rock all-originals with Jonathan fronting recording and touring aces who have played with the likes of Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Fleetwood Mac and John Fogerty. “Tour” de Force: A powerhouse performer with or without the band... Jonathan plays with abandon, on tours across the USA, Italy, Austria, Spain and Portugal, garnering worldwide radio play, press praise, and a notable USA and Europe fan base. Jonathan muses, “ My aim as a songwriter and performer is great rock songs that hit like a missile, big on impact and explosive emotion, a big molecule-rearranging sound that cuts through the radio drone and people shout: ‘holy #!*$!!, who was that?!’ Current and Caring: Jonathan’s ongoing commitment to secure the future of music therapy in cancer care at Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute – donating and raising money, raising awareness, and teaching music to kids with cancer – Jonathan has raised upwards of $85,000 to support it. Jonathan also partners with the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund. His bold single, “Brave Woman, Brave Man” – from “HEARD” – is a salute to all our American men and women in uniform serving overseas at great cost and sacrifice to defend the United States and freedom at home and around the world. The song/lyrics are available for listening and for purchase at www.jonathanauerbach.com and through Amazon, iTunes and all other major digital distributors, with 100% of the proceeds it generates going directly to the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund.

In this new era where the search for meaning and purpose is resonating so distinctly, Jonathan Auerbach's new Nashville-recorded rock CD HEARD is a testament to what is on the minds of many. The music is a welcome departure from the mainstream pop-culture that seems to prevail with redundancy, combining thought-evoking lyrics with a soulful sound that is powerful and unique. Great CD!
