Icelandic native Jon Jonsson was discovered by Bryant Reid. Reid is responsible for discovering the Grammy award winning artist Usher amongst others. Jonsson has been passionate about music since childhood and working effortlessly to secure his place among music’s top artists since then. After attending Boston University in the US, Jon’s focus shifted to writing and performing, and with his debut “Wait For Fate” in hand and a steadfast dedication to getting each and every song heard, he returned to his home-base of Iceland with the intention of growing his audience. Jonsson has joined the ranks of other emerging Icelandic artists, such as Of Monsters and Men, and MÃºm to name a few, that are gaining international attention and bringing Icelandic natives to the spotlight.
