Jonathan Kershaw

Jonathan is a guitarist/songwriter originally from Yorkshire in northern England but now based on the south coast. Although known in various areas for his rock playing and indeed having played with members of bands including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Skunk Anansie and Cradle of Filth, he has quietly been applying his talents to an altogether different sound.

His music, epitomised in his debut album “Bizarre Tales” (released in 2012) is a serene blend of strong, traditional Celtic and folk sounds together with classical and rock influences. Although some of his material could be related to the folkier moments of rock giants such as Led Zeppelin, Rush or Jethro Tull, this does not fully quantify the complete spectrum of his sound. Intertwining guitar parts maintain a curiously ethereal feeling of mysticism with pieces that move through a variety of emotions.
