Jon Smith began his roots and musical journey during the early 90's, soon catching on with the Southern influences of bands such as Hootie and the Blowfish and Blues Traveler. Finding roots in challenging lyrics, accessible themes, and catchy songs, Jon began the evolution of writing that led to his own style and music.

Through the early 2000's, Jon played around the Southeast in the band The Real Underground. After this, Jon went solo and refocused on all-original material, as well as moving to a number of new cities, including Miami, Memphis, Los Angeles, and Minneapolis. In all of these cities, a swirling new convergence of styles affected Jon and led to what he is now.

Now, having moved back to his original city of Charlotte, North Carolina, Jon is enjoying the homecoming with new time in the studio and a new launch for his all-original, acoustic and electric songs with new bandmates and faces surrounding him.

Still based in the same rock-solid lyrics, heartfelt passions and uplifting melodies, Jon's music is an invitation to all to come and enjoy the music and his community and journey as well.
