Jon Cocker plays dark, full alternative acoustic music. He grew up in Sheffield (UK) and formed his first gigging band in Leeds.
After moving to Norwich, he played in several further bands, before briefly becoming an international artist when he played a gig in Japan. He returned to the UK to play the Wild Paths Festival in Norwich alongside the likes of José González, and now plays gigs primarily in Leeds and surrounding areas, often dazzling the audience with incomprehensible mumbling between songs. His first EP has been likened to John Martyn, Nick Drake, and Neil Young, and captures all the emotive spirit possible in this age of time pressures and distraction.
