Jon Statham was raised on music.
His father worked at country music station WQIX, interviewing country music stars such as Loretta Lynn and Tanya Tucker., and one time during a live music broadcast, was visited by members of Hank Williams band, who stopped in to play after hearing the broadcast.
One knew when they entered the Statham house, that this family treasured music. Whether it was dad playing guitar and singing country and folk songs from the 30’s and 40’s, to mom and the kids assigning vocal parts to an Irish ballad for church – there just always seemed to be music.
Jon has honed his singing, guitar playing and songwriting into a style that honors the classics, as well as offering a new voice that forwards the tradition of great acoustic/country music.
Well, after living in both New York and Los Angeles, playing and singing lots of styles of music, Jon has come to settle where he always belonged – in a songwriter’s town called Nashville, Tennessee.
