Full Description
“Raises the bar to impressive heights” David Sinclair – Rock and Pop Critic for The Times. UK singer-songwriter Jon Hart blends modern percussive fingerstyle guitar with emotive/gritty vocals and songwriting to create an awesome one-man acoustic experience. Although his technical abilities could be compared to the likes of Jon Gomm, Newton Faulkner and Petteri Sariola, he offers something distinctive in this small pool of virtuoso acoustic guitarist-singers. As one fan put it 'You have to see it to believe it'. The sole purpose for all Jon's compositions and arrangements, is to emulate them live. He does this with just one acoustic guitar and a vocal harmony pedal (to generate harmonies of his voice and a megaphone effect) without the use of a loop pedal. Jon has received critical acclaim from across the acoustic guitar world with his debut album ‘Reborn’ (co-produced by Chris Woods Groove), fingerstyle-folk album 'Set Adrift' with Daryl Kellie and three EPs ‘Defuse’, ‘Sticks & Stones’ and ‘Momento’ (the latter produced by Declan Zapala). He has toured throughout the UK and Europe with performances at Isle of Wight Festival, London Acoustic Guitar Show, The Turner Sims Concert Hall, The Red Theater (Italy)and Ullapool Guitar Festival where he co-headlined with fingerstyle legend Preston Reed. In 2019, Jon released his 3rd album 'Annual' along with a UK tour with fingerstyle and classical prodigy Billy Watman. He also went to Brescia to finalise his 4th album, which will be a 'Live in Italy' CD-DVD. Watch for new live videos every month up until the release in spring 2020. “Amazing” Genevieve Tudor’s Sunday Folk, BBC

What is your most memorable wedding?

Playing at a wedding drinks reception and first dance in Debrovnik, Croatia

Describe your style in 5 adjectives.

Modern, Contemporary, Bespoke, Professional, Friendly

What about your business are you most proud of?

After playing in many bands/acts where I had to follow songs note for note. I'm proud of creating an versatile solo act where I can combine fingerstyle guitar, vocal harmony, beatboxing and looping. My compact setup allows me to move around and deliver the same performance inside and outside.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

As a husband and wedding supplier, I'd say.....take some time away from the wedding planning to remember why you fell in love in the first place.

What is your favourite personal touch you have seen at a wedding?

During a wedding breakfast a photographer transferred a selection of photos to a digital collage frame and presented it to the couple and family members. He was able to move around the photos and add new ones there and then.
