Jon started playing guitar at the age of ten years old where he proved to be a natural. Soon after high school, Jon enrolled in the Dick Grove school of music where he studied studio guitar, and contemporary arranging. After a couple of years of knocking on doors and hanging out at clubs where all of the best L.A. studio and side musicians jammed during after hours, Jon was introduced to session guitar ace and recording artist PAUL JACKSON JR. To make a long story short, they hit it off right away and soon became friends. Before long, Paul was recommending Jon for different jobs in the L.A. area. This proved to be just the start Jon needed. After what seemed like over night, Jon had recorded, performed, and/or toured with some of the biggest stars of the music world. A small list includes: MICHAEL JACKSON, LIONEL RICHIE, BABYFACE, RICHARD MARX, EDGAR WINTER, ISAAC HAYES, THE BLUES BROTHERS, COOLIO, VANESSA WILLIAMS, PATRICE RUSHEN, DONNY OSMOND, CHERYL LYNN, THE EMOTIONS, to name a few. He has also written and produced songs for GRAMMY nominated, and Award winning Indie artist NIKKOLE. Jon's credits also includes playing guitar on major TV shows, and film projects as well.
Jon is currently on a new and exciting venture as the guitarist for the Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL World Tour by Cirque Du Soleil. The tour is scheduled to run through 2014.
"After years of experimenting with different scrunchies etc., they were either too tight, too loose, too big, or too small. They just didn't work right. Finally, my search for the perfect string muting device is a wrap. FretWraps. Perfection. Period."
