His 2015 release, "Haunting Me" EP marked an evolution in his sound, with guitar-heavy cuts like "Still Haunting Me" and "I Wanna Know". In late 2016, he released "Vanishings", an even larger statement of that evolution, combining '80s influenced AOR, pop rock, and synth-pop to create a sound uniquely his own.
In 2017, Jon and Magic Dance were signed by Frontiers after impressing label President Serafino Perugino with their last independent release, “Vanishings”. Their new album, "New Eyes" will be released with Frontiers on December 7th, 2018. For this new album, Jon collaborated with Jack Simchak and Tim Mackey on guitars, Mike Peniston and Kevin Krug on bass, and Kevin McAdams on drums. While the sound is now heavier and more guitar oriented, it also leans way more towards classic AOR, with strong hints of the sounds of the mid 80’s (think Loverboy, Heart, Survivor, etc).
