Biography

Jon Mullane is an LA-based award winning, Billboard charting rock/pop singer, performer & songwriter originally hailing from Canada. In an era where commercial radio play and chart success is dominated by major label artists, Jon's success is a reflection of his ability to write songs that connect with listeners - songs that mirror the emotions of the human condition intertwined with timeless and inspirational themes, positive messages, and observations of modern culture.

Jon is a dynamic performer, whose songs instantly connect with audiences in any concert setting, large and small, and his list of concert appearances is extensive, including performing at such legendary and iconic venues as The Viper Room and House of Blues in Hollywood, CA and 12th & Porter in Nashville, TN.

And as his story continues to unfold, Jon's success as a radio charting artist keeps moving forward with his single, My New American Girl, a fun, playful super catchy pop song that has broken into the top 40 on the Billboard Hot AC Indicator chart in the US. The song is the first single from his new album, SHINE, released worldwide in September 2016. SHINE features a diverse range of rock/pop songs with undeniable hooks, epic ballads and meaningful lyrics. 

Jon’s newest single from SHINE, Born Beautiful, encourages all of us to embrace the beauty we can find within ourselves, and through this song and its video, in which a young woman rejects suicide, he has formed partnerships with mental health organizations, including the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA.org), the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI.org – US), and the Campaign to Change Direction (changedirection.org - US), to help raise awareness and change the culture of mental health. The video for Born Beautiful is the winner of the 2016 International Music and Entertainment Award (IMEA) for Music Video of the Year. Watch Born Beautiful on YouTube. 

Jon is the subject of a new documentary, "Jon Mullane - Shine On" by John Rosborough of RPM Productions in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, which documents Jon's musical career as well as his personal struggles and triumphs. The condensed version of the documentary culminates with the worldwide digital release of Jon's album SHINE and was premiered at Jon’s album release party in Hollywood on September 15, 2016. The video for Born Beautiful and the documentary have both been submitted to the 59th Annual Grammy Awards in the categories of Music Video and Music Film, respectively.

SHINE picked up an award for Rock Album of the Year at The International Music & Entertainment Awards (IMEA), and the video for his single, Any Other Way, won Best Music Video at The 2014 Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA).

Shift was released in Canada through Flying Disc Records and in Europe through UK label Escape Music in 2010. The album builds upon the genre-defying diversity Jon has always brought to his music. Recorded in Halifax and Toronto with producer and co-writer Creighton Doane, Shift features 10 tracks of energetic rock with infectious hooks, including the remixed CHR/Dance version of Jon's hit single Make You Move. Follow up single, the touching ballad The One That Got Away, is a top 40 hit in Canada and continues to make a strong emotional connection with listeners & fans. The song was also featured in an episode of ABC's “The Lying Game” and CBS’s “The Young and the Restless”.

"Mullane's songs have a mass appeal, not just in North America but globally..." Bob Mersereau, Telegraph Journal

In 2008, Jon's song Make You Move was chosen by NBC TV for their Summer Olympic promo commercials. The tune brought Jon's sound to North America in a big way. It achieved multi-format chart success and garnered extensive radio airplay. In 2009, Make You Move was nominated for Single of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards.

Having lost both parents while still very young, then overcoming a potentially career-ending case of tinnitus, Jon Mullane has laid everything on the line for his career. It's the music that always mattered most. For Jon Mullane, music IS life.

Lyrics

Go the Distance

Written By: Jon Mullane

V1. In a state of confusion
Tell myself I’m breaking through
Just a man with a vision
Just one simple truth
Caught in a wave of emotion
I know there must be something more
And like a man on a mission
Well I’ve got nothin’ to lose . . .

Pre Chorus I’ve gotta move
I’ve got somethin’ to prove …

Chorus That I’m gonna go
Go the distance my way
Yeah, I’m gonna go
Go the distance my way
V2. And when no one would listen
I’d tell my friends I’d make it through
Not a courageous conviction
Just a simple truth
Now through all the commotion
There’s gonna be an open door
And with blinded ambition
Yeah, I’m gonna push right through

Pre Chorus I’m gonna move
I’ve got something to prove …

Repeat Chorus

Bridge I wanna live it up
Live the dream
I won’t give it up
Now I’m running free
I’m livin’ it in my dreams
Then I’ll feel it all over again

Outro I’m gonna go – I’ll go my own way
Go my own way

Change Your Life

Written By: Jon Mullane

V1. When the light goes down
In your world
And when the night won’t disappear
With no end in sight
You’re standing right here
. . . alone in your fear
Taking you down the road to nowhere

Pre Ch. And now that your heart is broken
So many words are left unspoken

Ch. What you gonna do now – change your life
What you gonna do now – change your life
What you gonna do now – to survive

V2. Hear the sound upon your window
The rain is falling down
And you’ve been hunting high and low
So turn and look around
And take some time, and find your light there
Calm without fear
And let the past just disappear
. . . now you’re here

Pre Ch. Now your heart can be unbroken
Say the word, the truth is spoken

Repeat Ch.

Bridge At the end of your line , I can see in your eyes.
This is your time, it’s all up to you now – change your life

The One That Got Away

Written By: Jon Mullane

THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY
(Jon Mullane)

Sometimes I lie awake and think of you
And all of the things that we would do
I turn back in time
And follow you now

And sometimes you win, sometimes you lose,
Somehow believe you’ll make it through
It comes back to me, it’s all over now
It’s all over now – where are you now?

Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose
Sometimes it all comes back to you
I’m dreaming now
And all of the chances I would take
Leading me to this one mistake
I’m dreaming of . . . the one that got away

Now I’m not the man
I used to be I know
Just someone I knew so long ago
Lost in a dream – that’s all over now

So here I’m alone just thinkin’ about you
It’s hard to believe for me it’s true
Can’t turn back in time and follow you now
There’s no other words that I could say
It’s all over now and I’m too late

Now I . . .
I can see dreams comin’ true
I try . . .
Try to believe that I knew
So why . . .
Why did I wait – it was you – for you

Sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose
Sometimes it all comes back to you
I’m dreaming now

And so many chances I would take
Leading me to this one mistake
And dreaming now

And just when I thought I
Had it all
I’m riding the wave,
The rise and fall
Just dreaming now

Sometimes you win
Sometimes you lose
Sometimes it all comes back to you
I’m dreaming of . . .
The one that got away
