Jon Batson has been writing and singing his songs in the US and Europe since the 60''s.
Currently headquartered in Raleigh, NC, he began his career in his home city of Washington, DC, where rode the wave of coffee houses on the East Coast playing guitar and singing folk songs. He paddled through the Disco years by touring the Western states singing Country favorites and studying the great songwriters on the way.
He has sung before the Kennedy family, performed at the prestigious Arts Club of Washington and was televised nation-wide from the National Cathedral as part of a special presentation of "Four Plays on Race" by Malcolm Boyd. His musical travels have taken him to Spain, Portugal and China, where he performed before the Vice-Premier and did a special performance on the Great Wall itself.
In addition to performing live he has had five original stage musicals produced and a string of album and CD releases. His first album is collectable in many countries.
Jon wrote and recorded the official song for San Jacinto, California and his songs have appeared on Murder She Wrote, The Tonight Show and Midnight Special.
The wisdom imparted to him by Oscar Brown Jr., "To sing your own song and make it something people would enjoy" are the words he lives by.
