'This is the story of a musician's coming of age'

Jonathan Milanes’ sound is somewhere in between alternative and indie-pop; he is an underground DIY artist and bedroom producer, based in London (UK). He is a multi-instrumentalist with influences that range from a wide variety of genres and artists, just like his hero – Prince.

His first release of 2020, ‘Drive Me Away’, talks about two protagonists who is wanting to escape the city that they’re metaphorically stuck on. The song’s production delivers an aggressive pop-rock overtone, but balanced with an astounding vocal performance that generates the kind of belief one might need in order to feel one’s true commitment in there undertaking. At the heart of ‘Drive Me Away’, it is a song about escapism – but with an underlying sense of hope for a better tomorrow.

“This is a story of a musician's coming of age.

British-born, Jonathan Milanes spent his early childhood in the Philippines, and the country’s music-admiring culture ultimately had a big influence on his music. He picked up the guitar shortly after he saw his cousin’s performance at church.

He returned to the UK as a teenager, where he formed a couple of bands, ultimately deciding to go solo. He’s an alumnus of the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance in London, where he honed his guitar and songwriting skills.

Although he sees himself primarily as a music producer, he’s also an artist: he’s released 2 self-produced EPs, ‘Rebels & Ghosts’ and ‘Tide Against the Wind’.

He’s currently building his music catalogue for use in sync, as well as producing a secret project that will arrive at the perfect moment.
