Jonny Blu is a rising star in the small but growing pantheon of talented Singer/Songwriters in Swing, Jazz and New Wave Adult Contemporary Pop music. Blu’s music combines his stylish, stirring and romantic pop vocals with smooth blues and jazz flavor and bursts of swingin’ big band.
Unique among his contemporaries, Blu composes, writes and co-produces all his original music. His CD releases In Just That Kind Of A Mood and the digital release In A Groove display his unique ability to write fun, contemporary music that still maintains the essence of the Sinatra and Big-Band Era classics. His newest album, Taboo! (a co-production with Peer Music) was released on October 6, 2009 and has been receiving excellent reviews by a growing number of radio stations and music listeners. Along with Blu’s smooth, but powerful vocal style, it features some amazing contemporary arrangements on classic Latin Standards like Taboo, Babaloo, Sabor A Mi and Besame Mucho.
Blu has been touring extensively on both coasts of the US for the past few years and his music is featured on several nationally syndicated Adult Contemporary and Jazz radio and internet radio stations nationwide and internationally. In 2008, Jonny’s debut album was released in Eastern Europe by Universal Music and recently in South Korea in March of 2010. His music has been featured on several major label Swing and Adult Contemporary Compilation CDs and his original songs have been featured in television shows like Young and the Restless and multiple feature films.
Blu is currently finishing his multi-city US tour to promote “Taboo!” and will soon head back in the studio to work on his upcoming album for 2011.
