Biography

Originally from the small coastal town of Ipswich Massachusetts.
Jon Robert's Sophomore release 'Purple Heart Cadillac' released July 14th 2011, debuted at #7 on iTunes Top Singer / Songwriter Charts Globally.

Over the past five years, Jon has performed over 400 shows to crowds of up to 18,000 in attendance.
It all started with a call from a leading artist management company asking JR to perform in front of a sold-out 4000 seat arena opening for the teen pop sensation JoJo. The reaction from the crowd was visibly sensational, and led to JR opening for JOHN MAYER, MAROON 5, JAMES BLUNT, COUNTING CROWS, THE JONAS BROTHERS AND THE POLICE.
The debut 'Meant To Be' has been licensed to MTV and other Viacom networks and has received multiple placements on "THE REAL WORLD, "THE GAUNTLET III," and most recently "THE HILLS." His song "TOUCH DOWN" was featured on the show's season finale, AN EPISODE THAT WAS WATCHED BY 33.7 MILLION VIEWERS. Disney Pictures recently roped in two of JR's songs from his previous album to re-relase the world famous BAMBI on Blu-Ray Disc.
'Purple Heart Cadillac' is currently available on iTunes and was produced by Andrew Dixon (Colbie Caillat) and features musicians Sean Hurley (John Mayer, Vertical Horizon) and Victor Indrizzo (Avril Lavaigne, Sheryl Crow) Mixed by Jeff Juliano and Mastered By Brad Blackwood.

Lyrics

Every Time I Go Up

Written By: Jon Robert

Verse 1:

I see the lights in your eyes
The same ones that fill up the sky
And you know that I just need time.
To empty this thought in my mind

Chorus:

Cause every time I go up, I don't want to come down again.
I'm trying to find a new place where I can be myself again.
I'm so high, I'm flying…to the next place
That I dive in to land, someday you'll understand.

Verse 2:

I've been thinking about, someway how
I could tell, tell you what its all about.
No I couldn't be, what you really need.
Now the past, is standing right in front of me.
But I know, better, to land in this weather and I ..
Think I'll stay up tonight.

Chorus:

Cause every time I go up, I don't want to come down again.
I'm trying to find a new place where I can be myself again.
I'm so high, I'm flying…to the next place
That I dive in to land, someday you'll understand.

Break:

Sometimes gravity is missing
And you don't need to pull me down
Sometimes love is in leaving
It makes it hard to come back down.

Chorus:

Cause every time I go up, I don't want to come down again.
I'm trying to find a new place where I can be myself again.
I'm so high, I'm flying…to the next place
That I dive in to land, someday you'll understand.

Here With Me

Written By: Jon Robert

Verse 1 :

Everything I say to you, has a way falling through
Every now and then I'm a ghost in the room.
Everything I said last night, never meant to make you cry
Maybe honesty take a lifetime to prove.

Pre:

You know, not everyone's perfect,
But I know, you're letting go.

Chorus:

I can never fall asleep, without you here with me
Baby lets see how far we can go.
So lay down, cover your eyes..
Lay down, these are the best kinda nights..

Verse 2:

For everyday gone wrong, there's another brand new song
About a girl barely holding on.
With every breath I take, I see another fade away…
Now,…I,….. can't….. wait much longer to say.

You're an angel, sharing this bed with me..
Someone I can believe

Chorus:

I can never fall asleep, without you here with me
Baby lets see how far we can go.
So lay down, cover your eyes..
Lay down, these are the best kinda nights..
I will never be the same, now that I met you
I'm feeling better, everyday, with everything I do
Save me, a moment in time
Say were alright…..

And MAY only come once in your life.

It's About You

Written By: Jon Robert

Verse 1:

There's writing on the door, this time they need a little more
And I didn't mean to let it go this far,
But who knew it would be this hard.

Pre:

It's too late to stop the rain, it coming anyway…
Hold on, take a breathe, before with slip away.

Chorus:

It's about words we choose, not about win or lose
Cause when you give and take your heart away,
You're making all the same mistakes.
It's the way life goes, its not about the high or low
Cause we try to change, but stay the same,
You'll always get your way, its about you.

Verse 2:

There's fire in the streets, its so much worse than what it seems to be.
And you never really know how close you are,
Ti'l it burns your paper heart from the bottom to the top.

Pre:

And its too late to stop the rain, it's coming anyway…
Hold on, take a breathe, everything can change… cause…

Chorus:

It's about words we choose, not about win or lose
Cause when you give and take your heart away,
You're making all the same mistakes.
It's the way life goes, its not about the high or low
Cause we try to change, but stay the same,
You'll always get your way, its about you.

Break:

What you said to me, did you really mean..
Honestly are you listening….? It's about...

Reality

Written By: Jon Robert

Verse 1

Slow down, and take it all in why you can
You gotta make it last, you know we can't go back
We'll maybe I was wrong, to try to turn around
The way I thought I knew, left me no way and now were lost now cause it's love….and it hurts, I know exactly, what's going on.

Chorus:
When you're not here, everything a mess
When I am not there, I tend to second guess
How I really feel about you, after all you put me through
Who are you going to turn to, when reality comes crashing down on you.

Verse 2:
Slow down, you better know where you're going
Love's a crazy ride, and can leave you anytime.
And maybe I was wrong, but maybe you were too.
We're going down together, with a single parachute,
Should I jump now, cause its love and it hurts… I know exactly what's going wrong…

Chorus:
When you're not here, everything a mess
When I am not there, I tend to second guess
How I really feel about you, after all you put me through
Who are you going to turn to, when reality comes crashing down on you.

Come back down to me…
I won't let you go…
Wake up from this dream, where glitter is gold…

When you're not here, everything a mess
When I am not there, I tend to second guess
How I really feel about you, after all you put me through
Who are you going to turn to, when reality comes crashing down on you.re

Superman (Coming Back)

Written By: Jon Robert

What if I'm wrong, and the night ends
What if you're right and it just began
Into the room with you, where lovers lay down
I'm a fool I know, a fool thats found….

A way.. out of your heart.
Maybe today, be a good time to start…

Coming back, to a world that we love
Coming back, like Superman does…
I don't know how to fly, but Im there every time you fall.
Better late than never at all.

i'm missing the days, when it was you and know one else
i miss the way, you know me better than myself
Faces change,but feelings stay the same
I know when I come back to you, everythings OK.

And now I'm back to the start…
