More About Jon
"Sage Jon" is a talented singer/songwriter/guitarist and a mildly humorous philosopher, who has performed all over the eastern and southern United States, from Maine to Florida to Texas, including New York City, Hartford, Boston and Cleveland.
Jon's roots are in folk music and blues with jazz influences, as well as in societal analysis, philosophy and personal growth. His performing has evolved over many years to have unique qualities, with thoughtful, meaningful songs that are well-liked by nearly everyone.
Jon offers a range of well-crafted original songs including a variety of themes: story songs, nature songs, songs of love, change, human growth and social issues. He expresses many of the thoughts, images and feelings of life.
When performing live, his insightful imaginative songs, pleasing baritone voice, crisp delivery, good sense of humor, stories and inclusion of sing-alongs, combine to provide "a breath of fresh thought" to receptive listeners.
People enjoy his vocal inflections as well as his ability with playing harmonica and guitar together.
Jon is from Akron, Ohio, where he began performing as a teen. He graduated from Ohio University, then taught one year for Hocking County Schools before moving to the east coast for graduate work and professional performing in the 1970's. Later he moved back to northeastern Ohio for many years.
Jon has performed at Yale University, the University of Vermont, Kent State, the University of Akron, Mount Union, Ohio University and many other colleges. He has also entertained at a variety of coffeehouses, arts centers, libraries, churches, outdoor concerts, conventions, night clubs and more.
Last year, Jon returned to live in the Athens, Ohio area. He has been singing at the local farmers' market and with the Deer Hill Folk Tellers of the Appalachian Ohio Storytelling Project. This troupe of talented storytellers travels around the region sharing stories from the hills, interspersed with songs by Jon.
In addition to his recording on cd, It's About Time, Jon has created a unique special live performance of songs and stories called The Inner Spaces Concert.
