Jon Herington has been the guitarist of choice with Steely Dan for both touring and recording since 1999 and the lead singer, guitarist, and songwriter for the New York City based Jon Herington Band. Jon's latest solo release, "Time On My Hands," (nominated for Vintage Guitar Magazine "Album of the Year" for 2013 Hall of Fame) presents the bluesy, driving pop/rock that the band has honed over years of playing in New York City area clubs. The band showcases plenty of Jon's signature style of guitar playing, though never at the expense of the songwriting, which remains focused, thoughtful, and fun. All three band members sing, providing a much bigger sound than a typical trio. Jon has often spoken of the first three albums he bought as a youngster: Cream's “Disraeli Gears;” Hendrix’s “Are You Experienced;” and the Beatles’ “White Album;” iconic recordings that continue to influence his sound and approach. The undeniable chemistry of trio has been built on a lifetime of collaboration with bandmates Dennis Espantman (bass, vocals) and Frank Pagano (drums, vocals) and is clearly evident in their catalog of songs. After years of playing the supporting (though highlighted) role, Jon steps forward with his trio as a world class guitar player with chops, taste, and much to say.
Jon has also toured with Donald Fagen; Boz Scaggs; Bette Midler; the Jim Beard group; The Blue Nile; Phoebe Snow; Madeleine Peyroux; Bobby Caldwell; Catherine Russell; Rob Morsberger; saxophonist Bill Evans; the contemporary jazz super-band Chroma; Lucy Kaplansky; jazz/blues organ great Jack McDuff; and also with The Dukes of September, a supergroup with Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs, and Michael McDonald.
