When it comes to writing songs that connect with listeners, we just can’t leave out Jon Mullane. The Canadian rock artist is known for his ability to write songs that mirror the emotions of the human condition intertwined with timeless and inspirational themes, positive messages, and observations of modern culture.
Thus it wasn’t by accident that Jon’s success in commercial radio play and chart success came as prominently as his songs did, in an era where major label artists dominate the scene. His passion for excellence and a power to inspire is evident of what he puts on his Facebook page: "If you can remember the melody and hear it in your head after you've listened to a song of mine and it makes you feel something, then I've succeeded as a songwriter. That's always been my personal gold standard - that the song sticks."
In his latest full-length album Shine, the Canadian rock artist showcases a diverse range of rock/pop songs with undeniable hooks, epic ballads and meaningful lyrics. Jon's success as a radio charting artist keeps moving forward with the first single from Shine - "My New American Girl", a fun, playful super catchy pop song that has broken into the top 40 at #32 on the Billboard Hot AC Indicator chart in the US. On top of that, the song was also featured in an episode of CBS' Young & The Restless and was nominated for a Hollywood Music In Media award in the Pop category.
Shine was produced and recorded in Toronto with co-writer/producer Creighton Doane, and is the second album the pair have worked together on. Jon's previous album, Shift included the hit singles "Make You Move" and "The One That Got Away", a charting Billboard Top 40 single in Canada. Shine contains a brand new 'Hot Mix' version of "The One That Got Away" as an added bonus track.
Beyond America’s shores, the internationally acclaimed rock singer/songwriter has album releases in parts of North America, Europe, and Asia where he has deservingly received countless accolades. In addition, his music has been featured in numerous films and television shows. He has also released several national charting radio singles, and has an extensive list of high profile concert appearances.
Now that’s what I call a rockstar in the making.
