Jon Magnusson is a songwriter, musician and producer from Stockholm, the picturesque capital of Sweden. The music he writes and plays is often plain folk with a touch of rock and punk influences and an occasional jazzy beat thrown in to keep listeners on their toes. Most of all, it’s his thoughts and feelings put to lyrics and chords. He does all his promotion himself with the strategy of building relationships with people and thanks to his genuine interest in people he always looking to make new friends in the independent music scene.
Aside from being an independent artist himself, Jon Magnusson is also a big advocate for the independent music scene and created the community the #MonsterThread in 2017 that he now runs together with the Luxembourgian producer and multitasker Toby Davis. Thanks to his constant desire to try new things and love of networking he has accomplished more than what could be expected in the year he has been actively a part of the music scene. With such a strong EP as “Always a rebel” in his sleeve and an always growing and dedicated fan base, who knows where he stands one year from now.
Rely On Me
With a drum intro worthy off “Spin Doctors” The EP starts off with “Rely on me”. This guitar driven and upbeat indie rock tune doesn’t hide its influences from the late 70’s punk scene, despite the fact that it was originally written as an acoustic folk song as a birthday present to the artist’s wife. The muted guitar in the verses opens up and explodes in the chorus together with goodies like a Hammond Organ and football stand choirs. Together with the declaration of love that makes up the lyrics this song is for sure going to put a smile on the listeners face.
