Band/artist history
Raised in the land of sunshine, Californian Jon Knox started drumming at the age of four. Banging on pots and pans, he drove his family nuts! Jon's talent impressed his father enough for him to go out and buy Jon his first drum kit. His early musical exposure was sounds of Motown, Gospel and Jazz oozing from the stereos of Mom and Dad. Soon the rhythmic pulse and grooves of Funk and Rock & Roll pioneers blasting through the walls of his siblings became a great influence on Jon. He began drawing from these multifarious musical influences to help mold and shape his drumming skills. During his career Jon has worked with many widely acclaimed artists and members of such groups including Adam Again, No Doubt, WhiteHeart, Rage Against The Machine, Blind Melon, Crystal Lewis, Foo Fighters, Carman, DC Talk, Steve Cropper and many others. Working alongside such diverse artists allowed him to expand into a very versatile musician. He further pursued his love for music by teaching himself to play guitar, bass and to compose and produce music. Currently, you can find him involved in remixing, making beats, scoring and producing projects which include an electronic/dance/hip hop type project called Dos Negros. Also he continues to compose and produce music for several music library companies. His compositions are in these genres of music: Rock, Alternative Rock, Metal, Pop, Indie, Hip Hop, R&B, Electronica, and Guitar-based music.
