Jon Slow is a passionate, experienced singer-songwriter/guitarist/ sax/clarinet/ flute player based in New England.

Jon has been creating and deriving joy from music from a young age when he…

  • first learned to play classic TV themes such as “Cheers”, “All in the Family”, and “MASH” by ear on the piano

  • danced on the stone fireplace ledge with his little brother to old records by The Beatles, Simon & Garfunkel, Neil Diamond, Kenny Rogers, Van Halen, Def Leppard, and the soundtrack to Saturday Night Fever on a then cutting-edge-technology silver Hitachi stereo.

 

Music became Jon’s fulcrum, whether...

  • playing classical and jazz clarinet, sax, and flute

  • self-teaching classic rock songs by The Who, Led Zeppelin, and Bob Seger on the acoustic guitar by taping songs off the radio

Next, Jon...
