It’s my pleasure to introduce the newest artist represented by Visionary Music Group, Jon Bellion.  At 21, Jon has proven to be a very talented musician, crafting his own art by writing, recording, mixing, and mastering all his own original music.  With blossoming artists Logic and Tayyib Ali on the same roster, the Long Island native will attempt to establish himself in the blogosphere with a distinct pop sound, as his predecessors have done with hip-hop.

Although cover songs are rare for Jon, who typically composes all original material, he decided to spin Drake and Lil Wayne’s crowd pleasing track, “The Motto” in hopes of warming up to the hip-hop heavy blog scene.  While the term “YOLO” may be overworked and overused at this point, Jon brings a refreshing set of vocals to the microphone and transforms this track from a club hit to a very mellow pop cover.  He will be following this introduction video with three completely original singles along with his debut mixtape “Translations Through Speakers”  later this year.

What are the FNT faithful’s initial thoughts about Jon Bellion?
