“Tea’s sound is lush and full, and neither overwrought nor self-important. His songwriting shows impeccable taste, and his performances bespeak both great skill and measured restraint. That the album entire is the result of one artist’s creativity is shocking, it is so round, complex, full of perspective and subtle profundity.”

    Three hours of music in Vorhees! I'll probably have a musical guest, which means it'll likely be two 90 minute sets, or each of us doing one solo set of 60 minutes and then a 60 minute set together. More TBA!

Q: Hi Jonathan, I LOVE your music, my question is silly, are you ticklish? If yes, where are your tickly spots? :)
A: Hi Josephine! I'm stoked you love my music! Wait til you hear the new album I'm recording now! Ok... ticklish??? Yes. Lots of places. If I feel like I am about to be tickled, I become ticklish just about everywhere. It is my greatest weakness, and now everybody knows it. Great! ;)
