About Jon Bellion

Jon Bellion is an American singer, songwriter, producer and rapper born and raised in Long Island, New York. He was born on December 26, 1990 and is signed with both Capitol Records and Visionary Music Group, alongside Logic. He first started making beats on his brother’s beat pad when he was a young kid. He would end up going to college on a basketball scholarship only to drop out to pursue his music career.

Jon pulls influences from many artists and producers, including Kanye West, Timbaland and J. Dilla. His ability to blend genres often makes it tough to categorize his sound, but his inspirations are evident throughout his projects.

Fun fact: Jon doesn’t actually know how to read music, as he has mentioned in interviews and on Twitter.

Jon’s name started getting more recognition after writing the hook for Eminem’s “The Monster”. In 2015, he was featured on Zedd’s song “Beautiful Now” and has also received credits with the likes of CeeLo Green on the track “Robin Williams” and for writing & producing “Trumpets” by Jason Derulo.

Prior to releasing his debut studio album, Jon released 4 mix-tapes: Scattered Thoughts Vol.1, Translation Through Speakers, The Separation, and The Definition. He has also made other songs and covered songs that aren’t on the mix-tapes that can be found on SoundCloud or YouTube. These songs are filled with collaborations between him and Beautiful Mind.

In 2016, he released his first studio album, The Human Condition, debuting at #1 on iTunes. It’s lead single, All Time Low, peaked at #16 on the Hot 100, reached worldwide success and has amassed over 200 million streams on Spotify.

Since its release, Bellion has headlined an international tour, performed alongside twenty one pilots, and 3 sold-out national tours for the album. Since those 3 tours, Jon said on the third tour “I don’t give a shit if we can come back and sell out a football stadium, I’m going the fuck home and making some new music”.

After months of cryptic Instagram, Twitter and Facebook posts, on the 10th of October, Jon announced his next album, Glory Sound Prep, will be coming out November 9th 2018.
