JON BELLION IN CONCERT:Jon Bellion creates eclectic, hyper-creative pop music that's undeniably catchy despite its unwillingness to fit neatly into any genre buckets. The singer, producer, and rapper describes his 2015
single "Woodstock" as a "psychedelic musical fiction", and he delivers on that promise with a euphoric combination of hip hop beats, soaring melodic hooks, and hallucinatory lyrics. In concert Bellion brings his fresh sound to brilliant life, executing razor-sharp harmonies with his two backup singers while a DJ, drummer, and guitarist add dimension to his unique productions. From the sugary harmonies and beatboxed rhythms of "Simple and Sweet" to the sing-along melody and gentle piano of "The Wonder Years", Bellion always treats ticket buyers to a party-worthy concert experience that perfectly blend the sweetness of pop with the swagger of hip hop. BACKGROUND SNAPSHOT:Jon Bellion was born on Long Island, NY, and grew up focused on his love of basketball before starting to play music in high school. After graduating he studied music at Long Island's Five Towns College before his growing involvement in the local music scene convinced him to drop out and pursue his passion on his own terms. He released his debut mixtape Scattered Thoughts Vol. 1 in 2011
and signed with Visionary Music Group the following year to release a cover of Drake's "The Motto". Following his second mixtape Translations Through Speakers, Bellion got a boost when he wrote the chorus for Eminem and Rihanna's 2013
smash "The Monster". He hit the road for his first US tour in 2014, impressing fans with his a confident and at-ease performance style that belied his newcomer status. With his fourth mixtape The Definition generating buzz in 2015, Bellion will continue to keep bodies moving on his Definition Tour.
