★★★★★ ‘ An undiscovered talent and a debut to beat all debuts' Genius Babble Music
Jon Grayson is a singer-songwriter from the Medway Towns in Kent.
Raised on a steady diet of The Police, City and Colour and Fleetwood Mac, Jon moved to London in 2014 and spent two years honing his songwriting and building a following by playing gigs in every corner of the capital as well as his home town.
In 2016, whilst playing at The Garage in Islington, Jon met producer Jack Watson (Jack + Ella, Changing Colour) and the two formed a relationship and spent the next 18 months writing and building a palette of sounds to start making music.
The Stranger EP is the first product of that time spent on stage and in studio and contrasts a sleek, exciting mix of pop hooks with honest, engaging and often very personal lyrics. These are showcased by Jon’s voice which was picked up by BBC Radio Kent’s Abbie McCarthy, who first aired the single in November of 2017.
The Ep consists of four tracks, Stranger, Crept up to the Water, Novelist & Heaven Won't Hold Us and Jon is currently writing upwards of 30 new songs and is finishing off the second EP which looks to be released in the first quarter of 2018.
The first taster of songs have had great reviews, evidenced by the two singles, Crept Up to the Water & Stranger, receiving airplay on multiple radio stations such as BBC Kent, Radio Deal, Nova Radio North East and CSR Fm.
InQuire Media had this to say about the Ep, "Stranger hooks you to Grayson’s flowing vocals as the sound twists and turns around his poignant outcries”
Jon is currently playing solo shows across London & Kent, including sets at 93 Feet East on Brick Lane, Notting Hill Arts Club, the Distillers in Hammersmith, the Black Heart in Camden and is set to headline The Islington on February 10th with a 4 piece band and support from West London artist Ethan Beer and Surrey's Changing Colour.
