Jonny Blu

”With a cool and sophisticated vocal style, Jonny Blu leads the way among a new generation of Swing/Adult Contemporary Pop artists, writing, composing and producing his own music. His music, combining stylish, stirring and romantic pop, smooth blues and jazz flavor with bursts of swingin' big band will please any generation of listeners.”

Jonny Blu is a uniquely talented singer/songwriter who was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, but made his debut into the music world in of all places China. After making a success in China, and appearing in the Disney blockbuster film Princess Diaries 2, Jonny has returned to the United States to promote his career further, going back to his musical roots in Swing and Pop. Uniquely among his contemporaries, most of Blu's songs are actually written by him. With a smooth pop feel, blended with hints of cool jazz and blues, Jonny's music, lyrics and vocal style really will put you in just that kind of a mood....
