If you’ve not seen Jon Whalen perform on Vashon Island, well it’s time to come out from that hidey hole! You can barely turn a corner on the island and he’s not right up in your grill; on stage, the radio, lying face down in the gutter…. Jon describes his music as mind/body-inspired folk-rock. Fantasy and experience share the subject matter of the songs from time spent in Senegal, West Africa, Europe and hitch-hiking around the U.S., to memories of lovers and friends; lost, found, or never quite there. Relationships, road stories, true and fabricated anecdotes and a skewed global view, fuel the lyrics of his original tunes.
