More on Jon Levy
Even at an early age, family and friends knew that Jon was destined for music. Constantly mesmerized with music and trying to recreate it any chance he got, Jon as a toddler, took to playing saucepans, cardboard drums, and old violins. At the age of eight, after a short stint studying the piano, Jon picked up the guitar and began studying formally and performing immediately. Jon wrote his first song a week after learning his first three chords. He’s been writing ever since.
Jon was accepted to Berklee College of Music on Scholarship in 2006 and began his studies majoring in Music Production and Engineering. Studying with fellow Kyoto native Tomo Fujita, who also taught the likes of John Mayer and Eric Krasno (Soulive,) it was with the help of Tomo that Jon learned to find his style as a guitar player, heavily influenced by the blues and Tommy Emmanuel. Graduating in the summer of 2009 Jon moved to Los Angeles, CA for two years to work as an artist and engineer/producer. Jon is now based out of Kyoto and mainly performs and records throughout Japan. He is also planning tours in the US, Australia and New Zealand.
