For Jonathan Len, singing has been something that he has always wanted to do. Len got his start in Paducah Kentucky and built a style on 1950’s R&B and classic country music. Len said he watched Back to the Future and when he heard Johnny B. Goode, he knew that’s what he wanted to do.
Len attended college at John A. Logan Junior College in Carterville and joined a band called Blend who kept performing even after college, and saw moderate success in Nashville and got to sing with country singer Ronnie McDowell. Blend would dissolve though due to family commitments and other obligations.
After Blend broke up, Len kept at it releasing a number of singles, a self titled album, and several hundreds of shows. After the pandemic hit, Len started performing on Facebook Live and giving fans solo concerts on the weekends. Len’s most recent project is a single and video for “A Woman Like That.” The song was released in late 2020 and was filmed on Corpus Christi Texas’ North Beach. To see that music video click here.
Len is set to perform at the Illinois State Championship Chilli Cookoff on Saturday at the Christian County Fair and at Assumption Fest on August 21st.
