Jonathan Carpenter is a 22-year-old musician from Dubuque, Iowa who grew on a combination of classic rock from his father and hip-hop from his mother.
His interest in music exploded into a full-blown passion after discovering bands such as My Chemical Romance, Thirty Seconds To Mars, and Linkin Park. Jonathan spent as much time as he could in the performing arts; whether it was theatre, choir, band, or drum corps, he always took advantage of opportunities to perform in front of others. As he grew older, he developed an interest in electronic music and found inspiration in electronic artists such as Marshmello, DJ Shadow, and Zedd.
Jonathan began writing electronic music in the summer of 2016 and released his first EP Reset Navigation in October of 2017. Reset Navigation is a sci-fi EP about the unexpected turns that are faced in life and the ways in which we deal with them. The upside down nature of the Reset Navigation cover art (by Heidi Schmidt) is meant to represent the feeling of life being turned on its head. Whether it’s asteroids, Martians, or psycho robots, abandoning ship is not an option. We must reset navigation and set a course for the stars.
