The Live Room presents Jon Gomm (ENG)

7 Jul 2024

19:00 - 21:30

Caroline Street Social Club

Jon Gomm is a singer-songwriter and acoustic solo performer based in Yorkshire, UK, known for his once-seen-never-forgotten virtuoso guitar style. This involves slapping, tapping and retuning as he plays, producing a huge, multi-layered sound filled with bass, drums and near-orchestral depth and complexity from a single guitar.

His songs are often deeply emotive, whether with or without his soft, affecting voice. And his live performances are intimate and powerful, but always punctured by his natural North Of England wit and self-deprecation.

In 2020 Jon was voted ‘Best Acoustic Guitarist In The World’ in the largest online poll of its type, conducted by MusicRadar / Guitar World.

Ibanez guitars launched the JGM10 and JGM5 Jon Gomm Signature Model guitars in 2021. He's the 3rd guitarist ever to design a signature acoustic with Ibanez, the previous two being Joe Satriani and Steve Vai.

In 2023, Jon's song Passionflower was placed 6th in Total Guitar's ‘50 Greatest Acoustic Guitar Songs Of All Time’, just behind The Beatles' Blackbird and Tears In Heaven by Eric Clapton.

Jon is also a passionate advocate for mental health and neuro-diversity.

‘There are very few musicians on the planet who can actually strike me speechless with the beauty and skill of their playing. Jon Gomm is one of those musicians.’ - Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God)

‘Jon, you are a genius man, I LOVE your music and playing!’ - Steve Lukather (Toto)

‘Wonderful guitar playing. An all-round genius’ - Stephen Fry
