Born deaf, Jono only became able to hear at age 5. He picked up the guitar as a teenager, honing his craft on the London live circuit and touring with the OneTaste Collective alongside the likes of Little Dragon, Jamie Woon, Nick Mulvey, Portico (Quartet) and Kate Tempest. Along the way he picked up a small army of evangelical fans, including luminaries such as Tom Robinson and Vashti Bunyan, who led the charge to crowdfund his debut album Darkest Light. His second album There Is, released in 2011, began his association with Ninja Tune’s Counter Records, and brought him widespread critical acclaim. He has since collaborated with a number of producers and groups such as Maceo Plex, Portico, Maribou State, and Technimatic and in 2015 released his third studio album Pagodes.
