Jon has always had an interest in music but invested most of his younger years in football. Playing for local teams and at age 13 he flew to the Philippines to try out for their national squad whilst attending Claret School of Quezon City. He was signed with Mercator Talent Management but returned back to UK after 6 months after missing his family.
Throughout his teenage years he kept his love for singing to himself but after finishing at Long Road College, he decided it was time to follow his passion for music.
Within 2 months, Jon was scouted for X-factor while having Artist Development with Legacy Records.
Jon’s first ever public performance was in the SSE arena getting four yes’ from all X-factor judges. Robbie Williams said “you’re obviously, incredibly talented” and “you look like a pop-star!” Formed by Robbie Williams, Louis Tomlinson and Simon Cowell, Jon got through to the finals (the live shows) with boyband United Vibe.
2019 was an important year for the band, they toured all of the UK and parts of Ireland to sell out shows including Hyde park with 65,000 people. A highlight of the year was touring the Philippines appearing at 5 Ayala malls, featuring on ABS CBN’s ASAP natin ‘to and MYX Ph, Wish bus, Monster RX 93.1 and a mini concert for the charity Miss possibilities foundation. Jon co-wrote two chart breaking songs which led to various radio and TV appearances in the UK and Ireland.

At the beginning of 2020, the band members went their separate ways which gave Jon the opportunity to focus on his solo career. He spent the majority of his time in the studio, finding his own sound and himself as an artist.
