Jon Goforth

Jon Goforth

Jon Goforth is known as a captivating musical storyteller with many voices. His music career spans thirty years during which he has performed live and been recorded many thousands of times. Yet every time Jon picks up an instrument he creates a new listening experience; his technical proficiency and incredible feel for the music crosses genres from classical to funk, jazz to soul, R&B to pop.

A native of Seattle, Jon studied saxophone, clarinet, and flute with Johnny Jessen through his Lakeside High School years then immediately began his practical music education, touring internationally with the soul band Exit 122. Jon met with success during his two years in New York, then returned home to raise his children.
