Jon Hébert is an artist, writer, photographer, web and graphic designer, and jewelry maker based in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Jon came up through the New Orleans songwriter scene after moving to the city in 2012. He soon started backing up other songwriters on bass and guitar, and played with numerous bands, including Bon Bon Vivant, The Set Up Kings, The Shamaniacs, James Jordan, Pearl and the Lonely Night Trio, Reed Alleman, and Terrina Russell-Cook.

Offbeat Magazine has this to say about Jon’s first full-length album, Bayou Wild, available on all major streaming platforms:

Bayou Wild moves effortlessly through a plethora of genres. No matter if it’s the Americana sounds of ‘Windy River’ (which features Hebert on mandolin), the horn laden ‘Landmark Hotel,’ or the Louisiana roots-rock of ‘Henriette Delille,’ Hebert is clearly comfortable working in different musical landscapes.”

Reedsy Discovery has this to say about Jon’s debut spy thriller The Gemstone Peridot, available on all major publishing platforms as an e-book and paperback:

“Murder. Spies. Assassins. I give this book 5 out of 5 stars. It was one of the most thrilling mystery books I have read in a while, and Jon Hebert does an excellent job of weaving the story together from a multitude of perspectives. Only pick it up if you have plenty of time though—once I started reading this book I did not want to put it down!” ~ Kelsey Cashman, Reedsy Discovery
