Hamsters Can't Climb
Jonathan plays an eclectic mix of Blues, soul and folk, mixed with fresh original songwriting, and is making a name for himself for his unique guitar playing, influenced by performers such as Nick Drake, John Mayer, Bert Jansch, Wizz Jones and John Martyn, and for his passionate vocal performances, and has become a legendary figure in his present home of Chester, and his family's native Liverpool, where his grandfather worked to book bands for the Cavern Club alongside Bobby Wooler and owner Ray McFall.
Jonathan's guitar playing has been deemed as "subtly sublime with a natural rhythm and effortless melody" with "a voice with charm and presence to match".
