Jon Century - Topanga, CA / USA

Jon has one of the most dynamic and authentic voices I’ve ever come across in an artist. He is soulful, fearless, and extremely creative––therefore I’m ecstatic about what the future holds for Jon.”

 

-Ron Alexenburg, former Senior Vice president of Epic Records.

Danish-born, Los Angeles-based vocalist and songwriter Jon Century is known for being reflective. His oeuvre is full of music that makes audiences think and feel alive—a quality he has brought to life in genres spanning from hard rock, pre-grunge, to singer songwriter. His experience with psychology and philosophy has helped him become something of an “emotional stripteaser,” enabling listeners to embrace his songs and achieve a certain level of catharsis.

After releasing two well received solo albums in Denmark—which earned him plenty of TV exposure and many live performances—in 2012, he formed his powerhouse hard rock group, Into Century, which was signed to Sony Music Denmark. Into Century released their debut album, Into Your Sun. Their second release, Nobody’s Slave, on Target Records, earned praise from music media in Germany, England, Sweden, Spain, Norway and Denmark and led to regular rotation on MTV and MTVu. As a solo artist Jon has played to audiences of up to 30,000 people on festival tour with his current producer, Alexander Brown.

Century’s new single, Time, which is part of an upcoming album, takes on complex emotional themes. It dissects excuses from unfulfilled potential and sets the stage for an extraordinary, sonically and rhythmically eclectic nine-track album that will be released as singles throughout 2021. The album’s tracks are infused with adult pop/rock and electronica, making them seductive and driven thematically by a deep-seated social consciousness and a sense of hopeful emotional and spiritual reflection.

It’s all part of a long creative journey. Growing up a child of the 90’s, Century was, as he puts it, “an adrenaline junkie,” a motorcycle riding risk taker who is grateful he found music as a more constructive channel for his boundless creative energy.
