The Unknown Prospector
Desire + Ordinary Things
In The Valley Of Heart's Delight



An accomplished multi-instrumentalist, singer and actor, Jonathan has performed at home and abroad, including venues in New Zealand, the Cook Islands, Fiji and the United Kingdom. Most recently he has appeared at such Los Angeles venues as Room 5, BB King’s Blues Club, Falcon, The Mint, The Joint and the Silverlake Lounge.

Having grown up in a house filled with blues, folk and gospel music, his sound reaches deep into the well of American roots music. At the same time, his songs have a contemporary edge that makes them marketable to a variety of audiences. At the heart of his songs are good stories, great melodies and hooks as well as superb arrangements.

Jonathan has self-released two previous EPs, The Unknown Prospector and Desire & Ordinary Things. His latest, In The Valley of Heart’s Delight, features a full band backing him on two new songs, a Dylanesque “Orangecoat” and Ray Charles-inspired “Honesty Gets Me In Trouble,” as well as a cover of the classic Dolly Parton song, “Jolene.” The disc opens with an original acoustic number, “Bartholomew,” the surrealistic tale of a man who tries to fly.

Light-hearted sophistication is at the core Jonathan’s music, a synthesis of folk, blues, jazz, soul and rock.
