"An undiscovered talent and a debut to beat all debuts'"
Genius Babble Music

Jon Grayson is a singer-songwriter from the Medway Towns in Kent.

Raised on a steady diet of The Police, City and Colour and Fleetwood Mac, Jon moved to London in 2014 and spent two years honing his songwriting and building a following by playing gigs in every corner of the capital as well as his home town.

In 2016, whilst playing at The Garage in Islington, Jon met producer Jack Watson (Jack + Ella, Changing Colour) and the two formed a relationship and spent the next 18 months writing and building a palette of sounds to start making music.

The Stranger EP is the first product of that time spent on stage and in studio and contrasts a sleek, exciting mix of pop hooks with honest, engaging and often very personal lyrics. These are showcased by Jon’s voice which was picked up by BBC Radio Kent’s Abbie McCarthy, who first aired the single.

"Stranger hooks you to Grayson’s flowing vocals as the sound twists and turns around his poignant outcries”
