About this event

"There are very few musicians on the planet who can actually strike me speechless with the beauty and skill of their playing. Jon Gomm is one of those musicians." - Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God)

"Wonderful guitar playing. An all-round genius" - Stephen Fry (actor, writer) speaking about Jon Gomm on The One Show (BBC, UK)

“Wonderful playing and singing. The whole package.” - David Crosby (Crosby, Stills and Nash)

In 2020 Jon was voted "Best Acoustic Guitarist In The World" in the largest online poll of its type, conducted by MusicRadar and its sister publications including Total Guitar and Guitar World.

Jon Gomm is a singer-songwriter and acoustic solo performer based in Yorkshire, UK, known for his once-seen-never-forgotten virtuoso guitar style. This involves slapping, tapping and retuning as he plays, producing a huge, multi-layered sound filled with bass, drums and near-orchestral depth and complexity, all from a single guitar. His songs are often deeply emotive, whether with or without his soft, affecting voice. And his live performances are intimate and powerful, but always punctured by his natural North Of England wit and self-deprecation. Jon is also a passionate advocate for mental health and neurodiversity.

When he was 2 years old, Jon demanded a guitar for Christmas from his parents. They gave him a ukulele instead, but after he summarily smashed it to pieces in frustration, they got him a guitar and found him a teacher. Growing up in Blackpool, UK, Jon's dad - a journalist and music critic for the local newspaper - would take him to gigs, and often bands on tour would stay at their home. The young Jon was lucky enough to meet and pick the brains of such luminaries as Jack Bruce (Cream), Walter Trout and BB King. Jon turned down a place at Oxford University to instead attend The Guitar Institute in London, then Leeds Conservatoire. Leeds became his adopted home, and the city museum requested one of Jon's guitars for its permanent collection in 2021.

From there, he began self-releasing music and touring, and while still a fiercely independent artist, he defied the odds to sell thousands of albums and tour countries across Europe, North and South America, Australia, Asia and Africa.
