Jonathan's Latest Album

Close To You

"This record was inspired by my fiancé Nadira Kimberly. At home one night, we played and sang together as we listened to “Close To You” by the amazing Burt Bacharach. This really opened the door for me to do this amazing man’s music. In 1975 I was 13 years old when my first single was released, “Please Stay” by none other than Burt Bacharach. It's like I've come full circle." JB
