WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT JON REGEN & "WIDE AWAKE"

“Jon Regen has a rare combination of elements - virtuosic playing ability, soulful singing, and a strong songwriting talent, all developing more and more as he grows and grows as an artist through the years. Give him a freaking listen!”

BRUCE HORNSBY

"He's a really classy singer, he writes beautiful songs, and he's got a great new album called Higher Ground coming out in October that's really wonderful."

JAMIE CULLUM, BBC 2 RADIO

“With smooth as silk vocals and a jazzy groove, synth lines, slick bass and a very cool vibe, Regen makes ‘Wide Awake’ contemporary and relevant.”

PARADE 

“This is a very cool track. You'll love the groove and the whispery vocal and tasty, restrained, soulful playing that makes you smile. Dig it!”

STEVE LUKATHER (TOTO)

“With his intoxicating new single, 'Wide Awake,' Jon Regen soars to new heights with a forward-looking sound that remains grounded in the old verities that have always made his music so appealing – melody, hooks, craftsmanship, and soul.”

NICK CRISTIANO (THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER)

“Just when you think there are no more classic songwriters out there in the landscape, a Jon Regen comes along.”

ROB THOMAS

“Regen explores the human condition with a rare warmth. His voice and playing are like close friends meant to carry you through dark nights and bright days.”

JEDD BEAUDOIN (KMUW/NPR)

“Jon Regen has taken his talents to the next step with 'Wide Awake.' Well-crafted and played with heartfelt expertise, creative musicality and production…and did I mention excellent vocals? Well done, Brother Jon!”

CHUCK LEAVELL (THE ROLLING STONES)

“I absolutely love this song by Jon Regen. The fact that it was done remotely in different parts of the globe is truly amazing. Since his days studying with me at Rutgers University, Jon has become an incredible composer, singer - we already knew he was an amazing pianist. I need to add producer to that list!”

KENNY BARRON

“Singer, songwriter & lyrical pianist Jon Regen returns with 'Wide Awake,' a next-step, immediately memorable track with a hint of early 70s Stevie Wonder & Earth, Wind & Fire-infused harmonic slide. The stuttering start of the piano solo alone has been stuck in my head for a week!”

BENMONT TENCH (TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS)
