Since picking up a guitar and writing his first song at the age of 9, Jon Sandler has amassed an arsenal of catchy and melodic tunes that he calls “pop fusion.” With a soulful voice, honest lyrics and a charismatic stage presence, he's been compared to a combination of Julian Casablancas, Elton John and Freddie Mercury, and recently a blog referred to Sandler as ‘the lovechild of Adam Levine and Tracy Chapman.
His unique style has been heard throughout the New York City scene over the past 7 years, where he has played countless shows at popular venues, such as Rockwood Music Hall, Mercury Lounge, Knitting Factory, Webster Hall, two sold out shows at the Triad Theater and a sold out headlining show at City Winery. Jon is currently writing original music for other popular musicians and film and television projects, including a feature documentary and a theme song for a new television pilot. His single ‘Lost Time’ was picked as the promotional theme song for best-selling author Alex Gellen’s latest novel ‘Love Sick’. His current band, Jon Sandler and The Fancy Band, has opened for such big name recording artists as Teddy Geiger, Terra Naomi, Green River Ordinance, and played the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach opening for Jimmy Buffett. On Jon’s most recent 2013 UK/US 13 date tour he opened for Bebe Black, Nell Bryden and James McCartney. Jon was honored with official showcases at the 2010, 2011 and 2012 CMJ music marathons in New York City, the 2013 SXSW music festival in Austin,was included on Delta Airlines in-flight radio, was awarded video of the day on AOL Spinner, was featured in The Huffington Post, MSN Music, and he was featured in Billboard Magazine after winning the first ever national 'Mariachi Mash Up' competition sponsored by Hornitos Tequila. Jon was interviewed and performed on The Artie Lange Show and on BBC London. The title track off of his latest album, Late Night Champ, was licensed to a Honda commercial and the upcoming documentary Tattoo Nation featuring Travis Barker and Ed Hardy.
Originally hailing from a small town in upstate New York, Jon performed though his high school years and soon after in Boston where he was signed to a promotional record label and formed a band called Luke Warm. Their improvisational pop style garnered a loyal fan base that filled their shows at prestigious music clubs including The Middle East, Who’s on First, and Harpers Ferry. They soon became the house band on Boston’s local morning show, Bean U.
Currently residing in Brooklyn, New York Jon recorded a full-length self-titled album in 2008 that received critical acclaim. In 2010, Jon and his band recorded a new EP called “The Fancy Band” produced by musician Eric Zeiler (Little Daylight). Jon was recently signed to super duper records where he continues to perform, tour, and has just finished a new full-length album “Late Night Champ” mixed by Justin Gerrish (Vampire Weekend, Weezer, Muse) and mastered by Chris Gehringer (Lady Gaga), which was released in 2012.
