Known as the Jedi of Cool, keyboardist Jon O'Bergh refuses to be pigeonholed in one genre of music. He is adept in a variety of styles including rock, jazz, funk, electronica, lounge - the list goes on. Jon has released over one dozen albums, including two Christmas albums and his latest piano album, Autumn Harvest.
Jon's first release Millennial Landscapes reached #2 on the NAV Chart, and his follow-up release Carta reached #1. He performed for several years with the band Gemini Soul. Their fourth album, The Nefertiti Xperience, reached #37 on the Amazon Bestselling Hot New & Future Music Releases chart, and their fifth album Dark Skin Babies The Movement reached #15.
His 2014 jazz album Skin Deep reached #3 on ReverbNation. Skin Deep represented a return to Jon O'Bergh's Gemini Soul roots, capturing that jazz/funk/fusion vibe. It's influenced by such artists as Esperanza Spalding, Herbie Hancock, Ramsey Lewis, Dave Brubeck and Joe Sample. Jon also covers Beyonce's Love On Top taken from her 4 album.
Of all the pianist to emerge, Jon O'Bergh has risen as a true jazz contender in this day and age of auto-tuned, rump shaker music!
