Mr. Jon and Friends make family music that is all about fun, movement, and laughter!
Singer/Songwriter Jon Lewis spent a decade playing shows in coffee houses, recording CD’s, and having opportunities like being on a T.V. show, being a finalist in a national song writing competition, and enjoying international radio play from Belize to Ireland.
In 2008 Jon and his wife Carrie started a family, and the following year Jon started working with kids at the downtown library in Frederick MD. These two events started something new for Jon – songwriting for children and performing for them regularly. Jon & Carrie went on to record their first album for kids and their families called “Mr. Jon & Friends” at Grammy Award winning studio Acacia Recording & Production. After it’s release, their CD quickly became a top seller on CDbaby.com, and also won a 2013 Parents’ Choice Award.
Now Mr. Jon plays over 200 shows a year for kids, sharing the stage with bands like The Pop Ups and The Imagination Movers. Mr. Jon’s new album “Rock & Rhyme” is also a top seller on CDbaby.com, and has just won a Parents’ Choice Award as well.
