Discover Jon Foreman

14 01 2009

With a vocal quality similar to Dave Matthews or Isaac Slade (the lead singer from the The Fray), Jon Foreman’s music has acoustical drive with folk undertones. An artist who truly loves his music and isn’t affected by the modern music industry only comes along so often. I admire Jon Foreman for his personal connection to his music:

“I’m so thankful that these songs still mean so much to me. In fact, I am perhaps more drawn to music than ever… Lately music has been my compass: it’s neither the map, nor the road but a steady constant that can help me make sense of the both.”

His songs tend to be focused on sadness. They have mellow chord progressions and often include an acoustical guitar. However, his tunes aren’t monotonous or over-simplistic. Listening to Foreman can ease you through a painful experience or, at the very least, comfort you during a stressful time. Give “Over the River” a listen. It’s available on his MySpace, and I promise you that you will feel at peace. His MySpace page features his new album Limbs & Branches which captures his reflective persona. Give it a listen and let me know what you think.
