Jonathan Sherrill was born in Horseshoe Beach a small fishing village in the Big Bend area in Florida.
Growing up in a family where both sides were musically inclined, it came natural for Jonathan to learn to play the guitar and sing. Around the age of 10 he began singing with his sister in church.
At the age of fifteen Jonathan and his two buddies started a small band. That soon fell apart and the normal life of a teenager set in.
While still in high school Jonathan started taking flight lessons and at the age of seventeen had earned his private pilot license. After three years of hard studying and lessons he had earned his multi engine commercial pilot license. And at the age of eighteen he had landed a part time corporate copilot job based out of Cross City, Florida. “Before I started taking flight lessons I told myself ‘I am either going to be an airline pilot or a singer” he says.
Jonathan’s dream was to fly for a major airline but after the 9/11 tragedy when the airlines began to lay off seasoned pilots he decided to get rooted in something a little more certain.
“I have a great job and love it, but I have always wanted to record an album and perform live shows so I went to Nashville and recorded ‘Whose Side I’m On’ “ says Jonathan.
Jonathan began writing songs when he was sixteen. “I want every song I write to have meaning and really come from my heart. I critique every song I write and try to put it out there in a way to really drive the message home”.
