Jon Gomm (UK)
Jon Gomm (UK) will perform at the Viljandi Guitar Festival on October 21.
Jon Gomm is a singer-songwriter and acoustic solo performer based in Yorkshire, UK, known for his once-seen-never-forgotten virtuoso guitar style. His style involves slapping, tapping and returning as he plays, producing a huge, multi-layered sound filled with bass, drums and near-orchestral depth and complexity, all from a single guitar. His songs are often deeply emotive, whether with or without his soft, affecting voice and his live performances are intimate and powerful, but always punctured by his natural North Of England wit and self-deprecation.
His breakthrough came in 2012, when he released his first ever single, Passionflower, along with a video of him performing the song, which went viral, totalling well over 20 million views across platforms. Jon has released 4 studio albums. In 2020 he was voted “Best Acoustic Guitarist In The World” in the largest online poll of its type, conducted by MusicRadar and its sister publications including Total Guitar and Guitar World. Ibanez guitars launched the JGM10 and JGM5 Jon Gomm Signature Model guitars in 2021. He’s the 3rd guitarist ever to design a signature acoustic with Ibanez, the previous two being Joe Satriani and Steve Vai.
The concert will be organized in accordance with the rules applicable to public events during this period. The organizer reserves the right to make changes to the program.
