Bio

Jon Autry first began the process of writing and recording his own music alone, in the middle of the night, during down time at a Chicago recording studio where he worked as a recording engineer (and had just begun living at, against the wisdom of Chicago building codes).

Although he had previously made music in bands of various types, from punk to jazz, he'd never written anything on his own. However, faced with a life that needed rebuilding, a windowless cinder-block room upstairs and a cycle of insomnia and excessive sleep, writing music became his only way to make it through to the next day. At this point it became a strictly solitary pursuit.

Being a band of one, writing, performing, producing and recording everything himself was an absolute necessity. Turning to the musical approaches he grew up listening to as inspiration, he began making music steeped in synthesizers and inhumanly quantized drum patterns mixed with acoustic and electric guitars and other flawed human elements such as his own voice.

After completing his first album ("...desolation began...") the time came to recreate this music outside of a studio in the real world. Since that time his music has been performed as a five-piece band, a solo acoustic act and a solo vocal/electronic act in a variety of venues and situations ranging from the 2004 through 2006 Winter Music Conferences in Miami to performing at Frank Lloyd Wright's estate, Taliesin, in Wisconsin. He also played South By Southwest for the first time in 2006.

Jon spent most of his formative years in the Midwest. Namely, Indianapolis and Chicago. However, in 2005 Jon finally made good on 10 years of threats and moved to New York City. He currently lives in South Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
