Rescheduled UK Dates... 

So you might know that I had a crazy year so far. I was out on tour in Germany, and after 2 gigs I had to rush home to look after my wife, who'd been taken into hospital. Driving home from Munich to Leeds (via a motorway motel and a ferry), abandoning a tour to see a sick loved one, was not a nice experience. 

Then the UK tour was immediately afterwards. We made the decision to go for it, and all was going well. Sadly, however, we had to use our day off to go back into hospital, and Natasha was told she… Read more

I made a new video. Plus news, tour dates...

Road memories #1 - African Township Adventure 

My story of diverting my South Africa tour into a township. See what happened....

While I was on tour in South Africa last year, we drove from the airport to our hotel in swanky downtown Cape Town. The drive takes you past some huge townships, which are basically slums - living conditions for most people are not great. People may have no running water, no electricity, no floor even; A large family lives in a one-room shack made of found materials with a dirt floor, and one chemical portable toilet to share… Read more

PRESS RELEASE: Jon Gomm On Home Soil

Singer-songwriter and youtube guitar hero Jon Gomm is taking a break from his international touring commitments to play a few intimate shows around the British Isles.  He released his latest album Secrets Nobody Keeps last year, with songs described as "masterpieces inflected with tribal rhythms, pop melodic sense and Gomm’s flowing, draped over vocals that would surely make even Eric Clapton blush." Since the release he's been busy traversing the globe, with tours… Read more

New video "Everything" released today, plus tour news... 

I made a new video. You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fmWQXknDE88



The song is called Everything and it's the 3rd single from my latest album, Secrets Nobody Keeps. It's a twisted love song. It's about obsession, really. It's the song I had the most comments about from the album, which really surprised me, just because it's so prog - nearly ten minutes long, two time signatures, shreddy guitar solo, even cameo appearances from other songs...

If you like it, please share it by posting it on… Read more

Win 5 sets of Jon Gomm™ Signature Guitar Strings! 

I'm really proud to announce that my favourite strings are now officially available as a Jon Gomm Signature set! Handmade in Derbyshire by Newtone. These are my personal super-heavy gauge specially chosen after years of experimentation to have a really easy tension at low tunings, and to give a tone that is warm and soulful. 

I tune my guitar a tone below concert pitch, and quite often much lower than that. With these strings that brings out a warmth and character completely different to the usual twangy… Read more

  • Fighting my insecurity, listening to the recordings for the Live In The Acoustic Asylum videos/album. It's like staring at yourself in a mirror, every flaw so familiar and obvious. Especially with these totally live recordings. It feels like you're in the room with me while I'm playing. 
I think it sounds actually OK. I did my best. :) More info on the coming release here: http://j.mp/JonGommNEWS
