Jonny Blu 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.

While his path in the music industry is rare, it suits Jonny perfectly. Following his success in China he is currently living in Los Angeles and focusing on promoting his recently released 3rd studio album Taboo! and his previous independent releases, the swingin' EP release In A Groove (2008) and his original debut Swing/Pop CD In Just That Kind of a Mood (2007). In A Groove is a digital only release with four Jonny Blu originals and a swingin' remake of the Burt Bacharach classic Always Something There to Remind Me. In Just That Kind of a Mood contains six original songs as well as standards by artists ranging from the classic Cole Porter to LL Cool J, all with Blu's own contemporary spin. Songs like the title track In That Kind of a Mood, Smilin' Eyes and Ooh-Wee are examples of Jonny Blu's natural gift for songwriting and love for music.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
