Jon Bellion is perhaps not the usual person that is picked to appear in an #Artist2Watch category because he isn’t new to the music world. Then again, there isn’t a whole lot about him in general that could be called “usual.”
Signed to Visionary Music Group – the same independent label that rapper Logic calls home – Jon Bellion has been making music for many years. However its in the past 12 months that Bellion’s music has really come to the attention of the masses.
On February 20th 2013 Jon Bellion released his debut Visionary project entitled “Translations Through Speakers” which introduced many more people to his very organic and unique musical style. Crossing genres with effortless ease, the free album really showcased the talents of this musical chameleon.
Jon Bellion is currently building up anticipation for his next body of work,from which he has released the first track “Ungrateful Eyes,” including the song’s visual which was directed by none other than Visionary’s own GRVTY. He has also been generous enough to give everyone an insight into his creative process by sharing a video of exactly how “Ungrateful Eyes” was created from scratch.
Even in today’s all-access online environment, it is still quite rare to be able to see an artist’s entire creative process and it is definitely an educational and inspirational experience. The Jon Bellion bandwagon is steadily gathering momentum and with this next project it will accelerate even more so get on now and thank me later.
