My name is Jonah. I'm primarily a singer and guitar player but also play bass and keys. I started on guitar as a teenager, obsessed with shredders like Paul Gilbert and Jason Becker. For many years now I've focused on songwriting and singing. I am versatile and versed in many styles both vocally and on guitar. I've written and played new wave, indie, power pop, rock, pop, electronic, industrial, metal and more. Most recently I've been lead singer, guitar, keys, bass and primary songwriter for power-pop-new-wave band The Cinnamon Fuzz. It is here that I've worked heavily with a multi-platinum producer, a huge learning experience.

I am available for joining a project, touring, recording, writing and more.
