Jon's 2nd solo CD, "Old School Moderne" is now available from CDBaby as hard copy or as a download.  Order directly from Jon at axematic@gmail.com for $10. postpaid.

Old School Moderne is an eclectic album touching on a variety of American musical genres including folk, blues, rhythmic and blueish folk & roll, gospel, a boogie, and a bit of pop. Lyrical themes range from personal observation to political commentary, tempered by a little horror movie humor (Dr. Frankenstein and The Wolfman make cameo appearances) and a pie in the face for TV meteorologists. Overall, the album reflects Jon's mindset and history during an era of dramatic change in the American social landscape and the sense that modernity will yield even greater change.
