Songwriter Spotlight

Jon Regen

Jon Regen was raised in Maplewood, New Jersey. A protégé of the legendary pianist Kenny Barron, Regen began his career as a sympathetic sideman to renowned jazz artists like Jimmy Scott and Kyle Eastwood. Regen would soon jump out on his own with a series of acclaimed instrumental jazz recordings:From Left To RightLive at The Blue Note and Tel Aviv.

In 2004, Regen made an abrupt left turn and released the self-produced singer/songwriter EP Almost Home, which won praise from critics and listeners alike and kick-started a concert career that thrives to this day. Regen followed the EP up with his full-length 2008 release Let It Go, featuring appearances by Andy Summers of The Police and Martha Wainwright. Regen would tour for nearly three years to support the album, with a steady stream of sold-out shows on both sides of the Atlantic.

“‘Revolution started as an almost physical response to a love affair that never got off the ground,” Regen recalls. “There’s something indescribable that happens to you during a breakup—like everything inside of you is in revolt. I remember singing the phrase ‘There’s a revolution inside my heart’ while I was in the shower. I immediately ran over to my piano and began piecing the song together. In fact, much of what you hear in the song is from that very first day. It really wrote itself.”

Regen is also a much sought-after music journalist, and has penned artist profiles and album reviews for media outlets like Keyboard (where he has been Editor at Large since 2009), Billboard, Variety, Tape Op and others.

“There’s a revolution inside my head,” Jon Regen sings to open his unforgettable new song. Spin it on your music player of choice, and you’re sure to join the “Revolution” too!
