Jon Gomm is an acoustic singer-songwriter with a revolutionary virtuoso guitar style, where he uses one acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, bass lines and twisting melodies all at the same time. Having first laid his hands on the instrument at the age of two, his live shows combine deeply personal, emotive performances and a natural wit, with a once seen, never forgotten two-handed guitar style, both physical and complex, producing sounds people can barely believe are coming from a humble acoustic guitar.
Jon regularly tours worldwide and in January 2012 his song Passionflower went viral online, with the video passing 6 million hits, resulting in national TV appearances in the UK, Portugal, Holland, Brazil and Turkey. His videos are watched tens of thousands of times within minutes of appearing on YouTube, and in 2021 he was voted ‘The Best Acoustic Guitarist In The World’ by the readers of Music Radar Magazine.
‘Every single member of the audience fell into reverential silence, mesmerised by the man on the stage baring his soul with such power and authenticity. The self effacing brilliance with which he creates a uniquely rich and layered texture of sounds is breathtaking.’ – Qmunicate magazine (UK)
