Jon Geiger cuts a vein for his audience. A veteran of the Austin Music scene, Jon grew up in New York and became a brown belt in Jiu Jitsu just to make it home from school safely on the tough streets of Harlem. The deep soul of BB King’s “Live at the Regal” and the ferocious intensity of Eric Clapton’s guitar work were life changing for Jon. Playing guitar became Jon’s reason for living. The talent and passion of teenage Jon were quickly recognized by jazz greats such as Emily Remler and Hiram Bullock, both of whom took him on as a private student. Remler even referred to Jon as her protégé. His talent earned him a full scholarship to the Berklee College of Music. After completing his studies in Boston, Jon promptly moved to Austin and began working alongside the Austin greats and playing Antone’s and the Texas blues haunts. Presently, Jon is turning heads on the Los Angeles music scene with his unique blend of captivating guitar work, soaring vocals and artful songwriting.
Geiger has garnered many accolades from the media and has been hand-picked by greats ranging from Robben Ford, John Mayall, Charlie Sexton, Doyle Bramhall, and Joe Ely to open their shows. Indeed, Jon is probably one of the industry’s “best kept secrets.” However, that won’t hold for long. He’s already paid his dues and, everywhere this artist has graced a stage, people remember his passion… often years later.
