Jon Hart

UK fingerstyle singer-songwriter Jon Hart blends modern percussive fingerstyle guitar with emotive/gritty vocals and songwriting to create an immersive one-man acoustic experience. Although his technical abilities could be compared to the likes of Jon Gomm and Newton Faulkner, he offers something distinctive in this small pool of virtuoso acoustic guitarist-singers. The sole purpose for all Jon's compositions and arrangements is to emulate them live. He does this with just one acoustic guitar and sometimes a vocal harmony pedal, without the use of a loop pedal.

Jon and his catalogue have received critical acclaim (Acoustic Magazine (UK), Guitar World, The Times, BBC Radio Folk, Absolute Radio & CandyRat Records) from across the acoustic guitar world. These include his debut album ‘Reborn’ (2015 - co-produced by Chris Woods Groove), fingerstyle-folk album 'Set Adrift' (2017 - with Daryl Kellie and mastered by grammy-award winning Stacy Parish), a solo guitar calendar concept album ‘Annual’ * (2019 - featuring grammy-award winning guitarist Amrit Sond), a live best of so far album ‘Live in Italy’ * (2020) as well as three EPs: ‘Defuse’ (2012), ‘Sticks & Stones’ (2013) and ‘Momento’ * (2016). He has toured throughout the UK and Europe with performances at Isle of Wight Festival, London Acoustic Guitar Show, The Turner Sims Concert Hall and Ullapool Guitar Festival where he co-headlined with fingerstyle legend Preston Reed.
