Who wants It All
In Gold


Son of a travelling musician, Jon Bilbrough grew up crawling around studio leads with a backdrop of guitars, African drums, Doumbeks & thumb pianos. He would later be no stranger to the stage, following his dad on tour to perform some of his earliest gigs in halls usually graced by Ravi-Shankar in India and in other parts of Asia. The experience had a great impact on Jonís music. Rather than travelling a well worn musical path Jonís head was bursting with Bhangra rhythms, Sufi-style singing and Bollywood riffs and he began to translate this through voice and guitar.
Through the links established on his travels Jon recorded his debut EP between East London with producer Paul Wilkinson (Duke Special) and Chennai, India, where Jon travelled to record carnatic musicians usually acquainted with composer A.R. Rahman. The outcome is something wholly enchanting, 5 tracks of weathered gritty guitar and startling exotic arrangements, all driven by Jonís powerful and emotive voice.
