Grammy winner Jon Kaplan began his music career as many of his era did, learning John Paul Jones licks in his Long Island bedroom. Formative years playing in a slew of poorly named bands throughout high school and college led to a storied tenure with Atlantic Recording artist, The Hatters. Five years, three albums and 1000 shows later, Jon decided he had visited enough truck stops and traded in the spotlight for the studio lights.
Over the past 20 + years Jon has worked with artists including Paul McCartney, Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, *NSYNC, Mariah Carey, Walk The Moon, Bebe Rexha, Neon Trees, Ingrid Michaelson, Sara Bareilles, Gavin DeGraw, X Ambassadors, Elle King, A Great Big World, Crowder, Zach Williams, Joseph, Augustana, Cage The Elephant, The Damnwells, Demi Lovato, We The kings, Matt Redman, JoJo, New Politics, Melissa Etheridge, The Front Bottoms, Soul Asylum, My Morning Jacket, Barenaked Ladies, All Time Low, The Killers, Maroon 5, The B-52's, Parachute, Jonas Brothers, Ray LaMontagne, Bobby McFerrin and LL Cool J.
Jon's name has appeared on albums totaling sales of over 25 million and has been nominated for 6 Grammy Awards. He won his first Grammy in 2018.
