Jon Knox
Future User/ Independent - United States


Raised in the land of sunshine, Californian Jon Knox started drumming at the age of four. Banging on pots and pans, he drove his family nuts! Jon's talent impressed his father enough for him to go out and buy Jon his first drum kit.

His earliest influences came from listening to the sounds of early R&B, Soul, Gospel and Jazz with Mom and Dad. Soon after, he began sneaking into his sibling’s record collection and began being influenced by some of the masters of Funk and Rock & Roll including Led Zeppelin, Jim Hendrix, Earth, Wind and Fire and The Commodores to name a few.

Jon's drumming is compelling, creative and he has received distinction as being an inspiration to players of all musical styles. His musical talents have been nominated for Grammy and Dove awards and he has toured and appeared on numerous television and radio broadcasts that have spanned the globe.

His diverse playing experience has led him to work amongst widely acclaimed artists and with members of such groups including: Adam Again, Rage Against the Machine, White Heart, Blind Melon, Audio Adrenaline, No Doubt, The Wooten Brothers, John Elefante, Crystal Lewis, Steve Cropper, Mandisa of American Idol, Carman, DC Talk, The Bus Boys, Ray Parker Jr., Otis Day, Tyrone Wells and many others.

Working alongside these multifarious artists allowed him to expand into a very versatile musician. He further pursued his love of music by teaching himself to play guitar, bass and to compose and produce music.

Currently, you can find him involved in recording, remixing, making beats, scoring and producing various projects. Also, he continues to compose and produce music for artists and several music library companies.

His compositions are in these genres of music: Rock, Alternative, Hip Hop, Pop, Indie, R&B and Electronica.
