Jon Grey’s Wistful New Country Groove

jon grey

Jon Grey is an emerging singer/songwriter who made his solo professional debut in 2020 with the single “Kansas City Lights”. That track introduced a talented storyteller with an easy style. Although originally from Colombo, Sri Lanka, for the last twenty-six years Jon has called Kansas City home.

After a three year hiatus, Jon Grey has returned. This time he’s bringing a little twang along for the ride. The singer cites the music of rock legends like Bruce Springsteen and Guns and Roses as influences on his sound. He also likes a bit of Eric Church. On his latest, Grey is leaning in on that southern connection.

“Chasing Laura” is the brand new single from Jon Grey, released worldwide via all major streaming services on January 25, 2023. On the track, a classic Nashville ensemble rides a mellow mid-tempo country shuffle. Guitars, keys and backing vocals paint the edges of the mix. On the mic, Jon sings a wistful torch song in a smooth, radio-ready tenor.

"The song is a recognition that the ghosts of yesterday can often direct our thoughts and motions in the things we do, and people we attach ourselves to."
