Welcome to a new series where I focus on different musicians & their music.
This first installment features singer-songwriter Jon Gomm & his videos over the years. Jon's fingerstyle guitar playing combines influences from rock, folk, jazz and new age fingerstyle guitar into a style of his own.
I chose these videos because I found them inspiring or influential in some way to me & others who are fans of his music. If you've never heard of Jon before, this gives you an introduction to his body of work.
Let's get started!
1. Jon Gomm - High and Dry
This was the first piece that introduced me to Jon's music. A briliant cover of the Radiohead hit song. When I met Jon in Ausria, I got to jam on this song with Jon! Fun. =)
2. Jon Gomm - Passionflower
This song propelled Jon's career into the stratosphere. Great work.
3. Jon Gomm - Ain't Nobody (Chaka Khan)
A cover version of the Chaka Khan's classic.
4. Jon Gomm - Topeka
A piece inspired by Andy McKee's hometown, an imagined take on a place that Jon's never been.
5. Jon Gomm - Message In A Bottle
Another cool cover by Jon, this time of a song by The Police.
6. Jon Gomm - Gloria
My favorite original piece by Jon because of the lyrics and the strong guitar groove. Such a great piece of music!
