The artist of this episode needs little introduction.
Throughout his career, Jon Gomm has redefined what it means to be both a singer/songwriter and an acoustic guitar player. He’s honed a style and technique of playing that is distinct and refreshing, that leaves even some of the best players wondering, how did he do that?
But my favorite thing about Jon’s music is that he writes songs that evoke emotion. It’s evident that his music come from an authentic and emotional place, and you can feel that in his singing and lyrics.
This podcast was recorded a couple of months ago, so my deepest apologies for the delay. In it we cover:
- Backstory of his obsession with guitar
- His time on Guitar Star and having “Realizations” on guitar
- The story of Jon’s iconic Lowden Guitar, “Wilma”
- The story of Jon’s new Lowden Signature model guitar
- Slowly Releasing videos for Live in the Acoustic Asylum
