Jonathan Cornelius

4.25 out of 5.00

Review By: rob wheary

Based out of Nazareth by way of Boston, Mass., singer/songwriter Jonathan Cornelius is hoping to follow in the celebrity footsteps of his cousin, illusionist Criss Angel.

Cornelius is doing very well, using vocal and acoustic guitar magic to make the tracks on his self-titled demo come alive. He can switch very easy from the slow love ballads like in his song “Say I Miss You” or “Save Me” or in the faster songs like “Let it Out” and “You Lie I Die.”

He’s not waiting for a record contract to appear out of thin air, like the rabbit out of the hat (couldn’t resist it), but he has the inspiration to follow his dreams, the training to make it happen with studying at the acclaimed Berklee College of Music, and the talent to make it happen.
