Jon Zampese, a San Diego native, has been singing, playing various instruments, and writing original material for over 20 years. After completing 2 years of study at Musicians Institute in Hollywood, CA (94' - 96') he quickly wrote and recorded his first full length studio album. Nashville music critic P.J. Littleton said,
"Think retro-hip Target commercials, dressed in blue-eyed soul rhythm & blues... Zampese's spin is refreshing and fills a void amidst the other banal offerings.”
Jon is a high energy performer and appears as a soloist, in a variety of different duos, and in a high energy band. Cover material touches all types and eras of Soul music: Prince, D’angelo, Erykah Badu - Ray Charles, Gavin DeGraw, Raphael Saadiq - John Legend, Maroon 5, Maxwell…
