Jon is 36, from Aylesbury and has featued in several local bands such as 'The Alpha Males'.

He has previously written music for films such as the micro-budget horror farce "The Scar Crow" (2009) - that featured a cast and crew primarily from Aylesbury.

He said: "My debut solo music EP ("Without Words" 2018), found some favour with Stuart Maconie and Tom Robinson on BBC radio and has certain allusions to the local area; one track "Echoes of Cambridge Street" featured sounds recorded on Cambridge Street, Aylesbury such as traffic and the church bells.

"I am a bit of a musical outsider, doing what feels right and not worrying about trying to fit in or trying to be commercially successful.

"The video for the track comes out today, I hope you like it!"
