Jonathan Blake Salazar Biography

Described as Grammy worthy by LA and OC's most prominent players, Jonathan Blake Salazar is Southern California’s most talented emerging artist. Redefining the blues for 21st Century, he gains mass attention for his distinct Pop and Rock appeal. His exceeding skills as singer, songwriter and guitarist are destined to join the ranks of legends, Stevie Ray Vaughn and Eric Clapton.

Jonathan pioneers a new sound uniquely his own, fusing vibes reminiscent of the Delta with the edge of today’s California. His latest project, a three song EP recorded with Grammy winning Engineer and Producer Steve Churchyard has already started turning heads by earning Jonathan “Best Singer-Songwriter” at the 2009 Malibu Music Awards and “Best Male Artist” at the 2009 So Cal Music Live Awards. The wailing and soulful guitar on this project also caught the ear of Fender Guitars, earning Jonathan an endorsement. No plans of slowing down either as Jonathan is getting ready to head back into the studio with Steve Churchyard for the next project.

His rise in popularity deriving from his powerful performances, solo acoustic and full band, pack venues regularly throughout Los Angeles, Orange County, and San Diego. In 2008 he toured opening for Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Dave Mason and in October of 2009 he toured opening for Pepper. In 2008 he was also a featured artist on the TV programs "Daybreak OC" and "Open Mic TV."

The Journey
Jonathan Blake Salazar, of Orange County discovered his love for music at age twelve. A self-taught guitar player, he also secretly began writing music.
While music was very important to Jonathan, he was also heavily into athletics. Jonathan avidly played baseball and football throughout high school. He was a four year starting varsity pitcher for the baseball team and the starting varsity quarterback for the football team. He later went on to play college baseball. In a twist of fate—an injury to his shoulder forced an early end to his baseball career.
Jonathan returned to his first love of music and discovered he possessed vocal skills that equally matched his abilities as a guitar player and songwriter. He then went on to become a recording artist. When he isn’t recording music, playing live, smashing through deadly barrels at the Wedge, or bombing massive hills on his long board he is teaching music and guitar.
