Biography
I’d like to introduce you to an artist who climbed up the ranks of the music loving masses…. he goes by the name of Mr Jon Kennedy.

Hailed as ‘Almost certainly one of the 3 most talented men hailing from Stockport, UK.’ Jon is a man on a musical mission. He’s been circumnavigating the planet with his music since 2001 and the journey continues, goes further afield and gathers pace perpetually. He’s certainly a talented chap and has shown longevity with this talent. Jon has earned a place in the downtempo, beats, breaks and electronic scene that transcends into 2015, new respect and admiration from today’s audiences and from the new generation of producers and DJ’s show us the strength of sound Jon and his Record Label have….

He has amassed more than 3 million unique recorded plays on LastFM and 10′s of thousands of fans and followers on Social network sites. JK has no plans in going anywhere…. now with his own Record Label THE JON KENNEDY FEDERATION

After a stint with Brighton based Tru Thoughts Recordings, Jon, in autumn 2002 joined the Grand Central family. Bred a stone’s throw from GCHQ, his childhood in Stockport was characterized by exposure to new and interesting music, as a function of his parents’ enthusiasm for the pioneering artists of their day. Jon cites Peter Frampton, Electric Light Orchestra, David Essex and Geoff Wayne’s “War of the Worlds” (check out the H.G. Wells classic !) as early influences. His taste would in part be shaped also by his brother’s musical excavations, which brought him into contact with more guitar-centric bands like KISS and AC/DC.
