R&B artist Jon Vinyl hits the S.O.B.’s stage on March 29th.
Hailing from Toronto, Jon Vinyl’s unique R&B sound taps into nostalgic moments of teenage love, providing a personal soundtrack to daydreams of passed relationships. Production sounds of strummed guitar chords and waving synths fall into a soft spot between R&B and Soul, which lay the perfect framework for Jon’s open and honest accounts of his own run-ins with love.
His first single, Nostalgia, initially garnered the attention of OVO Radio, as well as support from pop star Shawn Mendes, who coincidentally attended high school with Jon. From there, each subsequent single opened up new doors, with numerous online blog supports, as well as support from the upper echelon of the industry like Billboard, Noisey, BBC 1Xtra, MTV, as well as Ebro Darden of Beats1 and Apple Music. With only a handful of singles, Jon Vinyl has already latched on to the heartstrings of his listeners, breaking over 3.3 Million streams on Spotify. With a full-length project still to come, Jon’s ability to translate his personal emotions into a widespread commonality amongst his listeners will assuredly scale into a larger body of work with even more impactful song writing.
