Jono was born in Denver Colorado. He was raised by his loving mother and step-father. It was in high school where Jono fell in love with music. It all started at Gateway public High School in Aurora, CO where he learned music theory and how to use his voice correctly. Even though he sang in the church choir and at school it wasn't until after college that he started his journey as a musician.
Marlon Proctor saw greatness in Jono and took him under his wing, becoming his mentor. Jono learned about true R&B and how to write a proper song. Jono shortly thereafter joined a group called Therapoetic Soul which included both Marlon and Jonathan Houston. Jono continued to developed and hone his singing and songwriting skills through many writing session and countless hours in the recording studio with the group.
In the summer of 2011, Jono sang a John Mayer tune in a karaoke bar. After getting off the stage he was approached by a guy named Tyler Ward. Tyler complimented him on his voice and told him that he wanted to work with him. Two months later they released Jono’s cover song "House of the Rising Sun". Jono opened up for a Tyler Ward concert at the Blue Bird Theater in November 2011.
2012 has brought continued success. Jono signed a multi-year exclusive publishing agreement with Mulinjer LLC, a Denver based Intellectual Property Management firm. In July, Jono opened for Jason Mraz in Honolulu! Additionally in the summer of 2012, Jono was featured on Nigel Lythgoe’s “Opening Act” appearing on E! Television. Therapoetic Soul, of which Jono is a member of, released their EP with all original songs written by the group. Jono is currently writing and in the studio working on his first solo EP that will be released late 2012.
Jono’s musical influences include John Mayer, Stevie Wonder, Luther Vandross, Dwele, D'Angelo, Musiq Soul Child, Led Zeppelin, Earth Wind and Fire, Jason Mraz, Rascal Flats, Keith Urban, Boys II Men, and Take 6 just to name a few.
