Jon Gomm, based in Leeds, is an acoustic singer-songwriter with a revolutionary virtuoso guitar style.He uses one acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, bass lines and twisting melodies all at the same time.
The emphasis is still on the soulful vocals and song writing, and his original material is influenced by everything from Robert Johnson
The Blackpool-born singer-songwriter’s 2003 home-recorded debut, 'Hypertension'
, was nothing short of a musical revelation: drumming beats, tapping chords and striking harmonics on his acoustic, underneath that warm, soulful voice.
Things changed for Jon
with his landmark single 'Passionflower'
racking up millions of views on YouTube
and other media platforms in 2012 – with British legend Stephen Fry
describing him on mainstream television as someone “playing the guitar in a way I’d never seen it played before”
and “an all-round genius”
latest album 'The Faintest Idea'
is set for release in October 2020.
