About this project

New Music Video from JONO

Instrumental music is underrated and deserves it’s spotlight. I am looking to shine that spotlight and bring a new light that visually shows the kind of emotions that can be expressed by just listening how instrumental music itself can speak a thousand words without saying one. I focus on making music that expresses emotion (hope, discovery, solace, frustration, etc.) with a visual aid to share a piece of the emotion I am feeling with the listener/viewer. It’ll truly be a rush of excitement and solace. I’ve brought my closest friends in the industry together to present to you an incredibly visual experience with intense and calming rhythms and guitar melodies. 

I began by finding my love for music at the age of 12 as an aspiring guitarist who was just looking for anyway to express my emotions through music. And 10 years later, here I am putting everything I got into music including my next single, Zion. It’s written all about the struggle of uncontrollable challenges in life and more importantly, how to find solace. Because as things get difficult, it may seem hard to find a way out, that place of peace you can escape to. That’s exactly what Zion is, the perfect getaway to remind ourselves of the beauty of letting our worries feel insignificant and our freedom feel infinite.

As the Revelations project just finished, with my first debut single and award winning music video from the Mission Viejo Film Festival, I’m looking to take things a step further. As I enter the studio to record my next single, I am also in the pre-production planning process for the Zion music video. All the music is written, the team is ready, there is only one piece of the puzzle missing, YOU. That extra push is all my team and I need to help pay for all the expense for this music video to become a reality and show you exactly what Zion is. We’ll be shooting this video all around some of the most beautiful canyons of the midwest and I would love to take you on this journey with me.

Anything from donating a few dollars, a lot of dollars, or just spreading the word would make a huge impact for my team and I. A sum of $5000 would cover the minimum to give you the Zion music video but anything closer to $8000 is what’s needed to complete the vision of the Zion. To thank you for your generosity beyond receiving a free digital copy of the Zion single, I would like to offer some rewards for your help including, a limited edition Zion t-shirt, access to a secret show, a writing session or guitar seminar, or even the chance to travel with my team and I to the locations of the music video shoot to be in part of the Zion music video.

What the money is for/what you’ll be watching me do over the course this: 

-Record my guitar melodies & my drummer

-Film the video 

-Covering costs for my incredible PR and Film friends 

-Covering costs for the trip to film in an incredible Red Rock setting 

I can’t thank you all enough to help me start this journey to pursue my dream in life and for all of your support in this. I write this music to share with all of you. To help you see and feel what I see and feel as the melodies play because we are in this together. Thank you for making this possible & for keeping instrumental music alive.

Risks and challenges

Filming is not going to be easy in National Parks and Reserves, it takes some support and money to pay for permits and overall logistics that come with filming in a desert. Such as: A LOT OF WATER, food, hotel/motel for the weekend, and insurance.
Not to mention the cost of equipment rentals it takes to make an amazing project, and paying the crew to light, set dress, and film this visual experience.

Love to have you on board to take you guys to Zion! :)
