October 2019 sees the release of Jon’s 4th album, Roads. A journey rooted in the folk and country traditions that also stretches into more expansive improvisational territory. Jon has brought together some of his favorite musicians and singers from NYC and beyond to create an exploration of the many roads we all travel. Over the course of the album different travel partners come and go in the form of duets and guest appearances, leading us to unfamiliar places that feel like home.
