Jon S. Patton writes “pretty music about ugly things” — presenting complex, and often dark, subject matter through the accessible medium of song to challenge the listener’s sense of good, right, and beautiful. Sweeping, cinematic story-songs influenced by Tom Waits, Gillian Welch, Josh Ritter, and The Waterboys are propelled by dazzling fingerstyle guitar work in the vein of Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits) and Richard Thompson. Although many of his songs are crafted to be lighthearted and fun, they tackle serious subjects like war, poverty, and (of course) love with poetic grace and intelligence.
