Jonathan's Media Channels
Jonathan began playing music at the age of three, starting with classical violin, and growing into a multi-talented, multi-instrument songwriter. Jonathan now writes most of his music on guitar and piano, and adds lead guitars, bass, percussion, and even the violin track on "One Last Night" in the studio.
Jonathan's music blends the solid song structure that makes a hit with strong vocal harmonies reminiscent of the ‘60s folk movement. Jonathan has a strong and passionate voice that can draw a listener in, and straight-forward lyrics that are a tribute to the struggles we all go through everyday. “Music is all about life, love, and how we screw them both up every opportunity that we get.”—Jonathan Truth Jonathan pursued a career in NASCAR during and after high school, and had a remarkable career for his age.
Jonathan has worked with some of the biggest names in the sport from Hendrick Motorsports to Roush Racing and Team Sabco; with crew chiefs Kenny Francis and Doug Richert, and with drivers including Wally Dallenbach, Jeff Green, the late Blaise Alexander, and Carl Edwards. It was working with the Roush Racing truck program in 2003 that Jonathan and Carl Edwards, en-route to the 2003 CTS Rookie of the Year award, began the friendship that has lead to Jonathan signing to Carl's record label BACK 40 RECORDS. Jonathan was first a jackman and then a tire carrier on the pit crews of the teams he worked with, and worked his way up to the position of car chief for a Busch Series team at the age of 24 before deciding to pursue a career in music.
Jonathan is on the verge of taking the music world by storm with his singles "When I'm Dying", "One Last Night", and "Where I Don't Belong" that are included on the BACK 40 RECORDS compilation "That One CD", available for sale at www.back40records.com. Jonathan is looking forward to getting on the road in the upcoming year to support the CD, as well as getting back in the studio to record his first full-length record, so check back often for tour dates and updates!
