About

Jon Gomm, from Leeds, is an acoustic singer-songwriter with a revolutionary virtuoso guitar style, where he uses one acoustic guitar to create drum sounds, basslines and twisting melodies all at the same time. The emphasis is still on the soulful vocals and songwriting, and his original material is influenced by everything from Robert Johnson to Radiohead. His live shows combine deeply personal performances and a natural wit, with a two-handed guitar style, both physical and complex, producing sounds people barely believe are coming from a humble acoustic guitar. He wrote his first song at the age of six, and was soon accompanying his father, a music critic, to gigs. Touring musicians would often stay at the Gomm household on the understanding Jon would get a guitar lesson, meaning he had one-to-one instruction from such blues legends as BB King and Jack Bruce (Cream).
