Portrait of Jonathan Winstead
The question of authenticity is answered in the multi-dimensional artist Jonathan a.k.a. “Super J”. Born in the “Music City” Nashville, TN, Jonathan reacquaints R&B with its roots at a time when the music industry is being flooded by the commercial and obnoxious. He is a crossroad between soulful sincerity and modern appeal. Jonathan’s musicality is clearly evident through a collection of songs that are each individually wrapped so as to let him flesh out his take on love, hurt, passion, and happiness. It seems unfair to solely compare Jonathan with other artist without understanding the individual essence of the artist himself. Little know that this phenom wears many hats and plays a major role in every facet of producing music. He has acted as a songwriter, track programmer, pianist, vocal arranger, engineer, and producer on many projects. Sharing his gift, he has worked with many artists in different genres such as Folk, Pop, Traditional Gospel, Contemporary Christian, Spoken Word, and Rock. Through this experience, Jonathan understands the importance of diversity and enhances his gift with his out of the box creativity. He effortlessly showcases his talent through excellent musicianship, well crafted vocal arrangements, and impressive lyrical content. When he sits down at the piano, we are acutely aware of the honesty of his talent. If you put all these things in perspective, it’s easy to understand why he has been dubbed,”Super J”. Jonathan’s vocal personality and technique borders on gymnastics, displaying his range with accurate scaling through his unique riffs and adlibs. He uses his voice freely in line with R&B legends Donny Hathaway and Stevie Wonder. When we speak of range, the definition is extended from vocal ability to musicianship and emotion. Weaving through bars of his hit worthy tracks is a voice of warmth and purity. Jonathan is singing your favorite song that you are hearing for the very first time. All of this is compounded by his fearless stage performance.He demands attention without demanding attention. He shares the charisma and “cool” of legendary crooners Sam Cooke and Marvin Gaye. He exudes a sensual undertone that makes the ladies melt, and his relatable demeanor connects with his male audience. Jonathan has never met a stage that he did not make his home or an audience that did not become family. As a prominent figure in the Nashville music scene, Jonathan has set the margin for local talent. Headlining shows and opening for major recording acts such as Raheem Devaughn, Jonathan is a well groomed and experienced performer. Taking the next steps to reach audiences abroad, Jonathan is more than ready to take a stage near you. So prepare your ears for “real” singing. Introducing……JONATHAN a.k.a. “Super J”
