Album Notes
Like countless others have done, Jon Black sat crammed in a generic office cubicle, dreaming of one day escaping the doldrums of modern corporate life. Fresh out of college in his home state of Georgia, part-time performer and songwriter Jon Black moved to Charleston, SC. Entering the workforce as a software company customer service representative, he took a good look around and came to the realization that he would rather starve as an artist than spend thirty years drowning in a sea of cubicles and fax machines.
Quitting his job in corporate America to pursue his career in music, Jon distilled his frustration into music and produced The Rhythm of the Rising Sun, an album concerned with wanting more out of life. “I knew when I walked out the door I was taking a chance, I was writing my own story, regardless of what ended up happening.” Jon’s music career began to take shape within a year and a half of handing in his pink slip selling nearly 2,000 copies of his album based purely on live shows and word-of-mouth.
While supporting The Rhythm of the Rising Sun, Black began to garner attention from Athens, GA based non-profit record label Rebuilt Records and President of Rebuilt Records, Jason Harwell. “I had gotten to know Jon a couple of years prior to him quitting his job to pursue music full-time, and he had always impressed me as an individual. Seeing the ways he developed during his first year of full-time music

An awesome CD
I saw Jon Black in concert at Camp Cove in Georgia when I was there at camp. He is awesome and I love this CD that my mom bought for me. Well worth buying, you won't regret it.
