Jonno has played music since the age of 4, training for 15 years as a classical pianist. Along the way, he acquired guitar, bass, and drum skills (mostly through blatant theft from better-trained musicians) and began recording one-man-band style tracks on a Tascam Porta-One in grade school.

His first club gigs were as substitute drummer for seminal Boston punkers, Lemonheads (no 'The'!), back before Evan Dando became the alterna-flavor-of-the-month. After brother and founding member Ben Deily left Lemonheads, the two brothers embarked on a strange experiment in musical and fraternal fusion which became known as PODS.

The band enjoyed some regional success in New England, and then, one day, completely failed to get signed to any label, major or otherwise. The band broke up when Ben moved to the West Coast to pursue a lucrative career in advertising.

Since then, Jonno has dabbled in various pursuits, including, but not limited to: marriage, parenthood, sound, lighting, and, most recently, dueling piano bar gigging. The latter is actually how he now makes his living. He was, in fact, doing this on Bourbon St. until recent events made that impossible...

Oh, yeah, and he still writes songs in a dizzying range of styles.
