A native Philadelphian, comes from a family of singers who instilled in him the desire and enthusiasm to hone his craft as a singer and stressed the importance of singing quality leads as well as backgrounds. His older brother would often say, "The impact a song could have on an audience could rest solely on how well the background is sung." This is a sentiment that Jonathan still believes today and is clearly evident in his background performances with The New Stylistics. With over 35 years of musical experience he has traveled throughout the U.S., singing with local groups such as the Electro Explosion, the Ovations, Priesthood, and Portrait In Black. As a talented writer, with a love for music and a desire to pass down some of his knowledge, he has written songs to complement the already unique style of Philadelphia talent Ericka Glenn, which brought her to the attention of Voorhees, NJ based Devine Sound Entertainment Company who signed her within a matter of weeks. He has also been instrumental in landing a deal for Philadelphia rapper Pretty Ugly. Jonathan has also worked as a writer and A&R producer for the Black Friday Entertainment Company, who is directly responsible for the signing of the following artists: Beanie Seagal (Rocafella/Black Friday), Charlie Baltimore (Interscope), Eve (Interscope), and Maurice Wicher (Interscope/Aftermath). He has also worked on the Pure Soul project for the Island Black label. Jonathan's dedication to and love of music has qualified him to become a member of The New Stylistics.
