NASHVILLE, TN - It’s not easy to put Nashville-based artist Jon Worthy into a genre box. He’s equal parts rock, americana and pop. “I'm comfortable with whatever anyone listening to my music wants to call me,” shares Worthy. “I make the music I want to make so I don't care about genre that much!”
His sound often hits like a fusion of Nirvana and The Lumineers. Worthy is a grinder with a true unadulterated energy and passion for music and performing. “Live, I am pure adrenaline, energy and passion,” says Worthy. In 2019, he played 121 shows including a handful of festivals such as Musikfest. In 2020 with the pandemic, Worthy pivoted to recording and production where he set up a recording studio at his house and began releasing self-produced music. Songs such as “She’s Alright,” “Remember When” and “I’ll Be Ok.”
Worthy has worked with several prominent names including Lincoln Parish (Cage the Elephant), Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes) and Arlie. In 2018, Parish produced--and played guitar on several of the tracks for--Worthy’s album Only A Dream. 2019 saw Worthy release his third full-length album called Something's Gotta Give. This album veered towards more of an indie-Americana-folk blend than prior releases. The album has amassed over 300K streams and radio play across the country including heavy rotation on Nashville's main station Lightning 100.
Worthy has had placements from several of these tracks with Netflix, Major League Baseball commercials, an indie film slated for a 2021 release and a commercial by international real estate giant Savills. Worthy toured throughout the Southeast and Northeast in 2021 including dates at Musikfest 2021, Pride Fest Detroit 2021, Pittsburgh PA, Cincinnati OH, San Diego CA, Jackson MS, Louisville KY, and more!
He also released a trove of new music and videos throughout 2021 including Shake Shake, Don’t You Feel It, All I’m Saying, Soul King, Never Lie To You, and a 4 song EP released in December. Worthy will be releasing a number of new songs and music videos in 2022 including several collaborations with other artists. Worthy is also busy with side projects including KJ Wild featuring Nashville artist/songwriter Kiki Halliday and fronting alternative rock band St. Dorian as well as producing music for tv/film and other artists.
