About Jonathan...

I've been a part of the Kansas City music scene here in KC since around 2003. From my time fronting a Black Sabbath cover band called Sabbath Disciples to my two current bands Into Existence and Burn the Gates, I've found a home on many stages in many venues all over the Kansas City area and a few regional stages from Topeka, KS to Tulsa, OK. 

I have been a fan and supporter of Burn the Gates for years and was as surprised as I was honored to be offered the job. I'm excited to share the stage with these guys and look forward to my future in Burn the Gates.

Influences: Pantera, Chimaira, DevilDriver, Fear Factory and Slipknot.

Currently Listening: Blackberry Smoke, Droid, Whiskey Meyers, and all podcasts from Bad Magic Productions. I'm always checking back in on my old favorites like Ozzy, AC/DC, Corrosion of Conformity, Clutch, Black Sabbath (I'm a Disciple till I die), Soulfly, Sepultura, Deftones and more. Cory Taylor said it best. "Dig what you dig, man." If I like it, I listen to it.
