My guest today is Jonathon Jircitano, a vocalist and songwriter who started playing in rock bands at the age of 12. After fronting bands for over six years, he decided to start performing solo after inspiration sparked working with former Cage The Elephant member Lincoln Parish.

Jonathon spent time living and writing in Los Angeles, focusing on creating his sound, with influences from artists such as Imagine Dragons, Phantogram and Imogen Heap. Having recently moved back to Nashville, Jonathon’s upcoming debut will merge genres in alternative and pop, with hints of blues, electronic, and his permanent roots of rock.
