Who Is Jon Wolfe? The best introduction to Jon Wolfe is the basic yet not so simple fact that he’s a country singer and songwriter. Country music, as it was, is and always should be, with boots firmly standing on the bedrock of tradition and an eye focused on taking it into the future. And that, as any fan of true country knows, is no simple proposition. “At heart, it’s all about being a great singer and storyteller.” Hence the other best introduction to Jon Wolfe is to hear him sing and share the stories in the songs he performs and writes. And to learn his life story — from small town Oklahoma to the bustling big city commodities trading floor to the dancehalls and honky-tonks of Texas and Oklahoma to Music Row, to give the highlights — and witness his faith in the power of music and determination to touch the hearts of others with something that means so much to him. It’s world class country music from the American heartland, informed by the great singers that inspired Wolfe — like George Strait, Garth Brooks (a fellow Okie), Clint Black, Merle Haggard, Alan Jackson and Dwight Yoakam, to name a few — yet fired by his own contemporary energy and vision. Wolfe’s music has been burning up the Texas Charts where he garnered six consecutive Top Ten singles(“Let A Country Boy Love You,” “That Girl In Texas,” “I Don’t Dance,” “It All Happened In A Honky Tonk,” “The Only Time You Call” and “What Are You Doin’ Right Now”), making Wolfe a “must see” act in the Texas touring scene. “A seasoned performer, Wolfe has opened for some of country’s biggest stars and has played more than 400 live shows over the past four years. ” His 2010 release, It All Happened In A Honky Tonk, became such a regional success that it was re-released as a Deluxe Edition by Warner Music Nashville in 2013. The album debuted at #34 on the Billboard Album Chart and has collectively sold 25,000 units. unspecified.jpg 2015’s Natural Man debuted #13 on iTunes, #25 on the Billboard chart, and #8 on the Nielsen SoundScan Top New Artist Albums Chart. It’s been loudly applauded and continues to sell and produce chart-topping singles. The 13-track collection merges Wolfe’s signature traditional sound, influenced by some of country music’s greatest legends, with an edgy, modern energy. Jon Wolfe’s current single “Boots On A Dance Floor” hit No. 1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report. It’s Jon Wolfe’s 4th consecutive No.1 single! He’s risen to 77,000 monthly Spotify listeners and the single has 470,000 total Spotify streams and counting Added to Spotify’s “Texas Red Dirt” playlist (158,000 followers) After lots of interest from many boot companies, Olathe Boot Company hopped on board as the “Boots on a Dance Floor” Tour’s official boots sponsor. Jon Wolfe gave away 30 pairs of their boots throughout the tour. The tour hit over 30 cities from South Texas all the way to California. Highlights were sold out shows in Austin and Corpus Christi, and near sellouts in College Station and Tulsa, OK. “Wolfe invites country music fans everywhere to dust off your boots, download or spin the single, and come see the electrifying live show that has everyone talking. The numbers don’t lie: Jon Wolfe is the torchbearer for country music.”
David Lorango is a country artist and songwriter currently living in Los Angeles, someone who the Examiner recently wrote is “bringing out the country in Hollywood”. David just released his debut EP “Ride All Night” in 2015, along with his first music video for his single “Leaves of November”, which is rapidly racking up the views and streams. David was born in Massachusetts and grew up in California. He’s had a love of country music since he was kid when his grandma would play Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton and George Strait on the oldies stations. This love grew into a passion to write, sing and perform country music, and he hasn’t looked back since. Since then David has been playing some of the best venues in Los Angeles and playing alongside top tier country acts, including most recently opening for the Josh Abbott Band at sold out show at the legendary Troubadour in November. His brand of feel good, everybody’s welcome country music has taken to across the state, where he played for thousands of our servicemen and women at Camp Pendleton. David is currently playing shows throughout the Southwest, promoting his latest songs. He will also be back in the studio at the end of the year to record new songs and perform them at some of Nashville’s well-known hot spots.
