Jonathan’s Setup


Jonathan is a full-time piano player, guitarist and singer. Having performed in bands and composed in almost every style of music (from symphonic to quiet acoustic, from operatic singing to rock vocals, from kitsch to avant-garde, blues to electronic, metal to jaunty ukuleles), Jonathan has the know-how and the equipment to provide whatever music you need for your project.

In addition to the orchestral and key instrument software libraries at his disposal, the music he records can feature any of the following live performances, without the cost of hiring additional musicians:

  • – live vocals
  • – live guitars (Yamaha acoustic, classical, electric Fender Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster Cabronita, Fender Cabronita bass and Hohner bass)
  • – live grand piano
  • – ukuleles – tenor, baritone and bass
  • – irish whistles
  • – percussion
