JON GOMM ON THE BBC

February 3, 2012

Recently ago a musician called Jon Gomm had one of his videos posted on Twitter by Stephen Fry with the simple word ‘WOW’ on the tweet and the YouTube link. Since then Jon, already a successful underground musician, has become an overnight story for the mainstream media. He has even been on BBC Breakfast news to talk about the song…

Jon Gomm is an independent artist (and a stunning guitarist) who has a very healthy following and plays music full time. I love how he talks about not wanting a record deal in this interview. The way Sian reacts, almost in shock, is a completely how the masses (and what I mean is many people in society) think music works; You work really hard to get that deal and once you sign you are home and dry and your career is made. What Jon is saying is so completely true. Many musicians that I know who have signed deals have come out with major debuts and some of whom don’t want to make any music any more. This is brilliant to be on the BBC. Power to Jon and power to all the amazing musicians who make music completely free of major labels…
