Leeds’ Jon Gomm is an acoustic singer-songwriter with a revolutionary virtuoso guitar style, using one acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, bass lines and twisting melodies all at the same time. With an emphasis on soulful vocals and songwriting, his original material is influenced by everything from Robert Johnson to Radiohead.
Jon’s live shows combine deeply personal performances and a natural wit. With a once seen, never forgotten two-handed guitar style which is both physical and complex, he produces sounds people can barely believe are coming from a humble acoustic guitar.
In January 2012 his song Passionflower went viral online, with the video passing six million hits, resulting in national TV appearances in the UK, Portugal, Holland, Brazil and Turkey, and plaudits from new celebrity fans, such as:
‘Wonderful to watch. Genius’ Stephen Fry
‘I love your work and style so much. You are very special’ Jon Anderson (Yes)
‘Wonderful playing and singing’ David Crosby (Crosby, Stills and Nash)
‘Hands down the most amazing guitarist I have ever seen!’ Tommy Lee (Motley Crue)
‘Jon you are a genius man, I LOVE your music and playing!’ Steve Lukather (Toto)
