This is my songwriter page and all of the material here is copyright-free for the public domain. These are songs I had written and recorded between 2000 and 2007 on a portable digital recorder in various locations around the country. They’re in mp3 format from unmastered mixes and do not sound good through speakers. Smart phones and ear buds compress the files nicely for a better sound. I've posted them to various hosting sites as far back as 2000 to digitally copyright the music but I'm still reserving the right to redo them with other musicians and artists. I'm currently writing new material and I'm still looking to collaborate with a female lead vocalist and a lead guitarist to finish and upgrade the material for internet distribution. My current project is acoustic with a lot of open tunings and acoustic and electric lead guitar. As for lyrics I am open to co-writing if I find a singer that's interested in working with me.

***I've recently upgraded my video editing software as I'm starting to now focus on the visual themes of the music, which isn't as dark as the older songs musically, but I haven't written lyrics yet either so... I have 2 sample vids using some of the effects I'm testing out over at Rumble do a channel search for Jonathan96. I cannot access my older video site accounts so I'll be posting more at Rumble in the future, perhaps with some of the new music tracks (no lyrics yet I must have writers block). I may have found a lead guitarist...maybe not.
