Jonathan Tea is a soulful singer songwriter making genre-bending American roots rock music. Tea’s sound blends strong, earthy vocals with well-crafted songs to create a sound that is familiar, yet will especially appeal to those who are looking for something a little bit outside of the box. Drawing from the best parts of the blues, 70’s rock n roll, and classic country and combining them with a modern aesthetic, Tea delivers on stage with passion, tempered with moments of subtle restraint and sensitivity, inviting the crowd into his story and rewarding careful listeners with smart lyrics and a mature sense of phrasing and groove.
The California-born, Texas-raised, and now NYC / Asbury Park, NJ based artist’s music has received airplay on over 150 radio stations across the United States and Canada and has been licensed for commercial use by several major networks including Discovery, MTV, E!, and NASCAR. As a solo artist, Jonathan has toured from Vermont to Texas, and has played shows in Los Angeles.
With his latest single, Never Give Up On Us, Jonathan pushes the boundaries of his sound, incorporating swirling synth textures and rock guitars, an urgent drum groove, and rich vocals with intricate harmonies.
Now back in the studio with a collection of new songs that explore new concepts and sonic textures, Jonathan continues to play regular shows in Asbury Park, NJ, NYC and the surrounding region.
