Jono is a songwriter and singer hailing from a small corner of Sussex, roughly halfway between London and Brighton.
His voice has been described as ‘fragile’ and ‘enchanting’, like Elbow’s Guy Garvey crossed with Nick Drake. His style is informed by whatever hits him at the time, but he cites Elliott Smith, Joni Mitchell, The Beatles, Jeff Buckley and Damien Rice as major influences on his writing. Performing solo, with just a piano or guitar, like many of his musical heroes Jono prefers the songs to do the talking.
Jono is signed to a record label called ‘Which Wolf Wins’ - he was attracted to the label’s backstory which is that of an old cherokee proverb, declaring that within each of us is an ongoing fight between a good wolf and a bad one. The wolf that wins is the one you feed. It’s a happy coincidence that these themes recur in Jono’s lyrics - he writes about light and the dark, hopes and fears, elation and melancholy, and the constant suspension between both ends of this spectrum.
