GUITAR AND FIDDLE PLAYER FOR HIRE

Jonathan Sheldon is a multi-instrumentalist, performer and recording artist; an active freelance fiddler, violinist, guitarist, pianist, vocalist in the Los Angeles music scene.

Jonathan is currently recording and performing with a number of traditional, roots and folk bands including The Storytellers and The Ranch. He is also working with punk rocks bands such as The Furys. Jonathan expands his musical abilities with musical theater companies like Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum and UCLA’s Dually Noted Theatre Co., and symphonic orchestras including the Topanga Symphony and Beach Cities Symphony. Jonathan’s range of productions extend to include pop, R&B, orchestral, and genre-bending styles.

Whether it’s on-stage or in-studio, Jonathan is committed to enhancing the story and vision of a project by sight reading and performing pre-written music in his soulfully idiosyncratic way.

Always a keen listener, Jonathan is an adept musical improvisationalist with every instrument he plays, making him an ideal ally for musical jams in any genre.

Jonathan is present and prepared to consciously cover the spectrum of musical expression – from sensuous progressions to unhinged solos. Jonathan is available for hire and to answer any inquiries you may have through the contact page.
