Honestly I have no idea what genre to classify singer-songwriter Jon Bellion. The best way to describe his music would be if you took indie, edm, hip-hop and rock and smooshed them together to create the music that is Jon Bellion.
Jon Bellion is an artist I’ve recently fallen in love with. I’ve searched and searched for an artist somewhat similar to him and I come up blank every single time. Bellion is simply Bellion, no one else. Every song of his is so emotion packed and wonderfully produced that it just can’t be compared to anything else. He incorporates elements that I haven’t seen used in music before and the execution is incredible.
If you’re still clueless as to what I’m trying to describe, just listen to this:
Jon Bellion’s music is fresh, unique, and overall something new to the table. His single, “All Time Low” has recently been climbing the billboard charts since it started debuting on WZPL 99.5. Now, I’m a complete metalhead and this music is about the complete opposite, but after giving a handful of songs a try I was hooked, how could anyone not be?
Every single off Bellion’s newest album, The Human Condition, has individually insane artwork to go along with it that pretty much makes you feel like you’re in a non-animated pixar movie. In past interviews Bellion has stated that he has goals of eventually catching the attention of pixar and having his album turned into a full on pixar movie.
If you’re still not hooked on the guy, give this a listen:
And if you really want to see how much raw talent the guy has check out this one take acoustic version of his song “Woke The F*** Up”
All of Bellion’s music is written and produced by him really only using his voice and a simple beat pad. His raw talent and extreme passion is what hooked me the most. Even if you normally don’t listen to anything similar to this genre I highly recommend checking Jon Bellion’s music out.
Let me know in the comments your opinion and experiences involving him, I’d love to hear!
