Singer-Songwriter. Ukulele Ninja.
Official Press Release for new single & video: (I Wanna Meet) Bill Nye!
Jon Yoon is a Ukulele Acoustic Pop artist from Seattle by way of Chicago. From his classical roots and love of many music genres, his influences range from artists like Jason Mraz, Bill Withers, and more. He is often entertaining Pike Place Market tourists with ukulele versions of popular songs and originals.
From piano lessons as a child, immersing himself in music classes in high school & college, and learning how to play multiple instruments, music was a passion that was put on the back-burner when moving from Chicago to Seattle in 1997, but not truly forgotten. Rediscovering the love of making music and choosing the ukulele as the main weapon of choice, Jon looks to make a big musical impact with a tiny instrument.
Notable people/groups that Jon has performed/collaborated with:
Seattle Rock Orchestra
Tim Wilson of Ivan & Alyosha
Mike & Matt Gervais of Curtains For You and Mikey & Matty
Annie Jantzer of Bucket of Honey
Brittany Lee Moffitt
Jack Daly of Stellar Road
Jake Hemming of Big Sur
