Bio

Jon, singer/songwriter for the band RECYCLD SOLZ, has been making music as long as he can remember. As a teen Jon could play 4 instruments and was already putting bands together to showcase his music. Early in his career Jon was managed briefly by Barbara Streisand’s Manager, Marty Erlichman, who said “Jon has star quality.”

Jon has been paying his musical dues for years packing them in at live shows and writing and recording. Jon, a seasoned songwriter, has written tunes for other artists as well as collaborated with producer Tony Deniro for some of his acts. “I even got to play for P DIDDY once, which was cool,” Jon says. “I’ve played sold out shows on the Sunset Strip and little hole-in-the-wall dives in the middle of nowhere (literally) where we had to move the jukebox out of the corner to set up and play.”

Recently Jon has been writing with Tony Deniro and Evan Ross(Diana Ross’s son) for his upcoming album.
Songwriting is Jon’s biggest love. “Creating something out of thin air in 5 minutes that so many people can enjoy is mind blowing. When I listen to a song I’m always looking for that “hook” – something I can take with me. I am so into the science of songwriting. People like Lennon/McCartney, Mutt Lange, Dr. Luke – all those guys know the formula – and now I do too.” Jon writes everything from country to hard rock and always focuses on the “hook.” Jon has hundreds of songs in his catalog and has had some of his music featured in tv and film.

In 2008 Jon’s band, Recycld Solz, released their debut album “beautiful creatures.” In 2011 they will release a super catchy EP called “Mercury in Retrograde” that is pure pop joy and sounds like it just stepped out of the summer of love. Hit song science gave Jon’s songs, Really Really, It’s always something, Cigarettes and alcohol and Could you be, Platinum Auddy awards, which means they think the songs have the potential to be big hits. Really Really got the same high score as the Black Eyed Peas monster hit “I’ve got a feeling.” Former VP A/R of Atlantic records, David Stern, says Jon's songs "Are catchy as hell." And award winning producer Robert Venable says Jon's songs have "Tons of potential."

Jon can write any style of song on the spot and is probably doing it at this moment. Jon and his band are getting ready to put together a tour soon to promote Mercury in Retrograde. Jon is on a musical message to spread one simple message – BELIEVE IN YOURSELF. We are much more than we realize. Each one of us has incredible things inside. No matter where you are in life, every day is a chance…an opportunity for a new beginning.

LET THE AWAKENING BEGIN!
