Jonny has a smooth and soulful production style with heavy jazz influences that can be heard throughout much of his music. Jonny has a truly original sound and unique style with his strong ties to Jupiter a cosmic vibe can be felt in many of his songs.
The youngest of 5 Jonny grew up in a heavily musically influenced family. Music was continuously playing throughout the house on a daily basis and both of his parents considered music as their main profession. His late mother Stella was a soulful jazz singer who graced many Portland stages throughout the years. While Jonny’s father Jimmy is a world-renowned keyboardist who played with some of the greats. Its no wonder Jonny would become inspired to follow suit. From a very young age Jonny always had a love for music and the arts. Jonny was given his very first version of FL studios in his teens by his late uncle and which inevitably led to a deep love for producing & composing music. Jonny’s been producing music for a little over 11 years now and has worked with many different artists and made several placements with big name companies such as Nike, Wilson Sporting goods, Marmoset & BMG. Jonny also composed music for the award winning documentary “Arresting Power: Resisting Police Violence in Portland, Oregon”
Jonny spent the majority of the last couple years touring the pacific northwest with his 9 piece jazz inspired funky hip-hop band and graced many of Portland’s biggest stages including the Crystal Ballroom, The Roseland, The Wonder Ballroom, The Hawthorne Theater, The Jack London and Pickathon to name a few. It was during this time Jonny began working as in-house producer for Warner Brothers artist TYuS and the Rose Tribe collective. Shortly after working with TYuS Jonny began also working on music at BMG studios in LA and Marmoset in Portland creating different production pieces for their respective catalogs. Beginning to prick the ears of other industry professionals it became time to make the move to New York City to begin working with different artists.
Jonny has an exciting 2019 planned for us, he’s been spending his time in the studio working on different production assignments as well as his own debut album. Currently you can listen his “Fall into Winter, Spring into Summer” instrumental series. “Fall into Winter, Spring into Summer” is composed of 48 different instrumentals all touching on different production styles, there’s something for everyone. The motivation for the project was to make the listener feel as if they were in the different seasons by encompassing all the different sound textures.
