“If I had to pick just one music genre to write in… well, I guess I couldn’t do it.”
Luckily, self-described multi-genre roots songwriter Jon Hebert doesn’t have to. Jon moves fluently between blues, jazz, arena rock and Americana on his first full-length album “Bayou Wild.”
Produced by Jon entirely in New Orleans, the studio album features local players Andre Bohren, Ryan Brown, Terrina Cook, Joe Crachiola, Gina Forsyth, Ian Smith, Tim Stambaugh, Rick Trolsen, Bruce Tyner and Jeff Watkins, with Jon on vocals, guitar, bass, mandolin and percussion.
“Friends said they could never tell what style of song was coming next, and they loved it. It was very intentional on my part, and I am happy it worked!”
Jon’s upcoming release “Heavy Records” will be split into three volumes, with the first 3-song set “Vol. 1” to be released August 19, 2019. On “Vol. 1,” Jon handled writing, arranging, recording and mixing of the tracks.
Jon is a Louisiana native and has been writing and playing music for over twenty years. He is constantly writing and recording his original music. He is also writing a book and continues to perform in New Orleans.
