For over 40 years, Jonathan Beedle has been a performing musician. Harmony is Jonathan’s forte. “I just gravitated toward harmony from the very beginning,” He says. “The parts just jumped out at me and those are the parts I would sing.”
Collaborations with partners and band mates seasoned Jonathan as a performer. As a songwriter, Jonathan’s inspiration comes from the artists he was drawn to growing up in Hellertown, Pennsylvania; The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Mike Nesmith, John Prine, Joni Mitchell, and many others.
His original CD A Long Day Gone is a record filled with rich heartfelt songs in the storytelling style he finds so compelling. Jonathan’s voice was heard in the Season 1 finale of the HBO series Big Love, singing the Civil War-era classic, “Lorena”. “Hearing myself singing in the background during a scene with Harry Dean Stanton was a surreal experience and quite a thrill!” He said recently. Jonathan has performed across the U.S. and has shared the stage with Jimmy Webb, Steve Forbert, The Strawbs, Ellis Paul, and Lucy Kaplansky. jonathanbeedle.com
