Jon Bellion has been on an incredible journey since he decided to pursue his love of music during his Junior year of high school. After graduation, Jon enrolled in the music program at Five Towns College in Dix Hills, New York. He would shortly after drop out to commit full time to write music professionally. He had the opportunity to work with Warner Bros A&R executive Kara DioGuardi for a year and was able to sign a deal with her personal publishing company. Through this opportunity, Bellion gained the experience of writing various songs for different artists.
Released in early 2011, Bellion’s first mixtape “Scattered Thoughts Vol.1” quickly reached over 11,000 downloads. In 2012, Bellion wrote the chorus to Eminem’s popular song “The Monster”, which went on to win a Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration”. Jon also wrote/co-produced Jason Derulo’s “Trumpets”.
Bellion has since released multiple collections of music including “Translations Through Speakers”, “The Separation”, “The Definition”, “The Human Condition”, and his newest album for which his new tour is named after, “Glory Sound Prep”. Jon has been inspired by notable artists such as Kanye West, Eminem, Pharell Williams, and John Mayer.
