Jonathan Hayes is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter who grew up in rural Chester county west of Philadelphia. He has been playing guitar since the age of 4, writing since the age of 9, and has also been known to play many other instruments and cross genres and styles. He comes from an acoustic background and stays true to that in his writing, though you can often hear him on fully instrumented tracks. On his debut record, "With Love," first released in 2018, Jonathan played every instrument on the album, recorded in his home studio in St. Peters, Pennsylvania. He loves music from all different genres, and it can be heard when he plays. He's got all the emotional ups and downs of a traditional folk singer, the roots and pride of an outlaw country singer, the ancient soul of a blues singer, and all the freelance technicalities that you hear in a jam band. He has a rare relationship and understanding of the universal language that is music.
