A powerhouse performer with or without the band, Jonathan plays with abandon. 3 Nashville-recorded CD's nailed boast a cache of fresh rock all-originals, fronting recording and touring cats who have performed and recorded with the likes of Bob Dylan, Crosby, Stills and Nash, Fleetwood Mac and John Fogerty. Worldwide radio & TV play, press praise, and a notable USA and Europe fan base. USA, Italy, Austria, Spain and Portugal tours.
Current concerts showcase a virtuoso trio of Jonathan, guitar & vocals, fronting gifted top musicians Carole Charlin, vocals & percussion, and Jose Roman Duque, drums & keyboards. Launched in 2016, the South Florida trio is making waves with a vision of all-original musicianship and signature acoustic rock fusion sound. In a word, “tasty.” On stage the ensemble delivers the unexpected at full throttle – smart storytelling songs at once deeply rooted and indelibly modern.
Talkin’gear... Jonathan figures amid other top axe men and women on the Artists Roster of Larrivée Guitars.
