Jon Christos

Jon's musical education began at the renowned Chetham's School of Music and then The Royal Northern College of Music where he was soon regarded as one of the finest singers of his generation. During a flourishing operatic career, Jon yearned for a change where he could use the skills he developed, not only as a singer, but also a pianist, composer and arranager.

A chance meeting with acclaimed manager Perry Hughes led to Jon immediately being signed to his record label where they set to work on his debut album, Northern Light. Upon its release Jon found worldwide recognition which led to various concerts, TV and radio appearances across the globe.

His career goes from strength to strength with recent highlights including performances for HRH The Prince of Wales, The Six Nations and Powergen Cup Final at Twickenham, The Heineken Cup Final at The Millennium Stadium, The UEFA Cup Final at The City of Manchester Stadium, The Reebok Stadium, Deepdale, and being the first artist to perform at the new Wembley Stadium.

As well as being in demand as a producer and vocal coach to various recording artists, celebrities and TV shows, his second album "Artist" releases in 2010.

Despite the classical background, Jon has always had a passion for various styles of music from over the years which he enjoys breaking down and looking into the production and musical aspects, the inspiration behind his show "Why We Love"
