A young singer songwriter whose rockytonk flare and soulful sound has quickly made a name in the Texas scene and beyond, Jon Stork was born in Houston, Texas. Growing up on the coastal plains and being from a musical family, the guitar was chosen from watching his older brother play, write, sing and perform in a band.
As growing in music and age came, new types of music along with styles began influencing the young talent. Texas based artists such as Robert Earl Keen, Pat Green, Roger Creager and more, began taking hold, as the writing of original material started to flow.
Working three jobs while going to college in College Station, Texas, Stork began to play locally and try his hand at sharing those songs that had come out over time. Eventually moving away from multiple jobs and the college scene, Stork found himself working in different cities across the country. Ultimately, this moving and shaking returned him back to Houston with not only a drive to make music work but a pocket full of songs that he had been compiling out on the road.
Playing anywhere and everywhere he could, he found stability in regular gigs and paying shows around the area at local spots. Honing and learning as time went on, Stork recorded and released his debut album, In Your Radio, in 2017, landing him amongst the top 10 artists on the iTunes country chart. Following the debut, the first standalone single, Rodeo Blues was released in December of that same year. Adding to the catalog in 2018, One Night Stand was released to show a different side of Stork that people weren’t aware that even he was capable of.
