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… 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
