You loved him on the first season of The Voice South Africa and now you can indulge in his phenomenal talent even more because Jono Grayson has just released a brand-new single ‘How I Love You’.
Born and schooled in Pietermaritzburg, 24-year old Grayson now calls the city of Cape Town home. He is no novice when it comes to music and has a list of accolades quite impressive for a youngster. Credited as a member of #TeamKaren on The Voice was not Jono’s first stint on television as he also reached the Top 33 of Idols South Africa back in 2011 and he has been very busy making music ever since. 2012 saw the release of his single “Gotta Love Me’ with another ‘You are Mine’ being released in February 2013. The latter went on to be playlisted on Red Cap Radio, UCT Radio and 92.6MFM with ‘Gotta Love Me’ enjoying air time on Highveld 94.7, KFM and Heart FM.
While Jono lists his influences to be John Mayer; Michael Buble; Coldplay and The Script his vocal range has the ability to exceed all boundaries. His falsetto is pretty impressive and he boasts a very strong and fluid lower register as well.
‘How I Love You’ is the perfect fit for Jono’s vocals. It’s pop, but not of the bubblegum variety, it has substance and it is bound to resonate very well with local music lovers. It is one of those songs that you will find yourself subconsciously tapping your feet and humming along to. It’s really good and it deserves a good deal of radio time!
Jono is proof that perseverance pays off and that turning your dreams into a reality is only limited by your dedication. We are looking forward to hearing more from this talented guy soon!
