Jonny P (born Powell) is a R&B singer/songwriter with a retro flair. Originally from the Bronx, New York City, with a history working in fashion and design, Jonny moved to Nashville in 2011 to pursue his musical gift.
Growing up as a church drummer Jonny's love for rhythm drew him to R&B, reggae and hip hop. With shades of early Motown, his self-released debut EP, Right to You, arrived in the summer of 2014. When it came time to track his second EP, he flew to Los Angeles to work with legendary drummer James Gadson (Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers). After hearing the magic of that session, mixing engineer Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Amy Winehouse) decided to lend his distinct touch to project... And The silky-smooth EP "Good to You" was born. (Produced by Goffrey Moore + Released on Big Picnic Records in April 2017)
Most recently, Jonny got his break into film, being cast in Detroit. Directed by Kathryn Bigalow and centered around the devastating Riot of 67. The film was released on August 4th, 2017.
