Jon Mulvey hails from Los Angeles, California, where he picked up his first guitar when he was just seven years old. Formal Jazz guitar training started at age 11 and he began touring internationally at 15 with top acts. He earned a music composition degree in the Bay Area and then studied under guitar great Joe Satriani. After vaulting onto the world stage, Jon directed his expertise to the studio, where he has participated in over 1500 recordings. But playing guitar, bass, or keys, as well as engineering, producing, and mastering albums in the studio, are only a few of his talents.
For ten years he was a member of Mingus, with Dorian Mingus (son of legendary Jazz Bassist/Composer Charles Mingus). Mingus recorded Jon’s music on the Mingus label Debut Records. Now, Jon combines his formidable training with innate talent to help shape his projects’ unique sounds, which include world fusion band Vortex Tribe, acoustic world Due Cuori, rock’n Jon Mulvey’s Rockethouse and his other solo projects. Jon has recently joined Davey Pattison (vocalist for Robin Trower and Gamma) as lead guitarist. He is also a sponsored clinician for EMG Pickups and Ibanez Guitars.
