“Jon Regen has a rare combination of elements - virtuosic playing ability, soulful singing, and a strong songwriting talent, all developing more and more as he grows and grows as an artist through the years. Give him a freaking listen!” – Bruce Hornsby
“It’s something of a small miracle,” says New York-based singer, songwriter and pianist Jon Regen about his upcoming album, Higher Ground, due October 4, 2019 via Ropeadope. “It’s an album I wasn’t planning on making,” Regen explains. “When I became a parent, my touring and recording life was immediately put on hold.”
Produced by Jamiroquai keyboardist Matt Johnson, Higher Ground includes musical performances by legends like Andy Summers of The Police, Benmont Tench of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Chuck Leavell of The Rolling Stones and Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran. The album announces Regen as a formidable talent with the rarest of gifts - an original voice that speaks to the human condition with authority and hope. Regen’s songs define our times, but are meant to last for all time.
Higher Ground is set for release on October 4, 2019. Preorder now on Bandcamp.
