Jonathan Van Selow:
Jonathan Van Selow is an American-born Composer, Producer, Performer (Piano/Guitar/VIs), and Vocalist. Having studied Classical Piano since he was six years old, and performing in recitals and tours since the age of eight, Jonathan took up writing music in 1998 with the formation of Puretone Records.
Jonathan’s music takes the listener on a journey through a vast variety of experiences, as listeners will write their own stories in their mind’s eye as they listen to the rich ambiance and thematic queues within the music. Jonathan strives to take the SOUL of the music, and lay it down for you to experience… Many of his popular songs were written in one take, and will exhibit subtle nuances every time they are performed. This is a technique Jonathan has coined “stream-of-consciousness recording,” which involves the music simply “streaming” from mental concept to recorded completion, leading to varied, subtle, powerful lead lines and vibrant orchestrations. Unlike the typical, commercial “hundreds of takes,” formulaic approach, Jonathan’s music strives to capture a dynamic moment in time, a feeling, an event, an emotion, and encapsulated that emotion in the track, presented to YOU (our Fans and partners) to write your own stories as you listen, or simply to allow the emotion to take control and take you to wherever you wish to go, or feel however you wish to feel.
