Jono Manson is a prolific singer-songwriter, instrumentalist, producer and an engaging performer. During a storied career spanning over five decades he has played everywhere from the local dive to Madison Square Garden and has amassed an impressive discography that includes major label and indie releases on three continents. His songs have been recorded by numerous artists and have been featured in major motion pictures on network television, and in national advertising campaigns. Jono has produced albums for Grammy winners and local heroes alike.
Born and raised in New York, Manson began his professional career in the 1970s as a teenager in the city’s dirty dive bars, where six-hour gigs were the norm and nights out rarely ended before sunrise. By the early ’80s, Manson was a highly respected figure on the club circuit, and his band, Joey Miserable and The Worms, were a force to be reckoned with. The New York Times called the group “local heroes” and credited them with influencing “countless” other acts, including the likes of Joan Osborne, who hailed them as “master entertainers” who “always had the crowds eating out of their hands.” In the decades to come, Manson would go on to develop a career as a recording artist and producer in Italy, continue to perform his own music far and wide, and compose for major motion pictures. His credits as producer include Grammy-winner John Popper, American Idol finalist Crystal Bowersox, Italian rockers The Gang, Italian rock icon Edoardo Bennato, and Pakistani sufi/rock stars The Sketches, to name just a few. He has performed alongside the likes of Bo Diddley, Pete Seeger, Warren Haynes and Brice Springsteen.
He currently makes his home in Santa Fe, NM, where he has put down deep roots in the local community, as a performer, educator, organizer and producer. He is the founder and chief engineer of “The Kitchen Sink” recording studio where he has nurtured creative projects for countless artists, emergent and established alike and has collaborated with the likes of Amanda Palmer, T Bone Burnett, and Ray Wylie Hubbard, Terry Allen, Eliza Gilkyson, Tom Russell and The Mother Hips, to name just a few. Jono has six times been named “Producer of the Year” by the New Mexico Music Awards.
