Jon Gomm

(UK)

Jon Gomm´s style is not easy to grasp, even with careful listening – and the more difficult to explain with words: a sound that seems as complex as a small orchestra, with tones that can be more than difficult to regognize. Minimal percussions, experimental violin and bass processing, electronic shots? It´s anything like that – or even everything at the same time. However, it is manufactured on only one single acoustic guitar. And played by someone, who apparently has reinvented his instrument. And that makes all the more fun and has an even more impressive impact if performed and experienced during one of his great live performances.

When Jon is tenderly stroking his instrument with his eyes closed, hamming, drumming, pulling on and trembling with her, sometimes working exclusively on the guitar neck, and unleashing the most unbelievable sounds, ordinary listeners as well as old hands are equally overwhelmed. And then there is his voice: Gentle, sometimes rocky, sometimes soulful, surprisingly catchy and pop-compatible, it forms the perfect antipode to Gomm´s powerful play. Thus, combined with clever and coherent songwriting Jon Gomm’s performances are an extraordinary and unique experience. The fact that comparisons with guitar heroes such as Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix are coming up regularly is hardly surprising. However, Gomm is far away from mimicking the narcissistic Rockstar stereotype. – What makes him even more appealing.
