Jon Rodine is a singer
and songwriter, based in Minnesota.

Drawing on sources like Dan Penn, Doug Sahm, Bob Dylan and beyond, his music is songdriven, a blend of Americana, groove-oriented rock’n’roll and country soul. His latest album “Last Star”--his first collection of original material--has been getting notice around the country. “Eleven songwriting gems” says, but “his strongest asset is his voice”. “Authentic, unpretentious...funky, heartbreaking”, said Ellen Stanley, in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

He’s shared the bill with artists like Ralph Stanley, Fred Eaglesmith, Tom Russell, The Pines and Jimmy LaFave. He plays and has recorded with some the finest musicians in the Midwest---Dave Ray & Tony Glover, Erik Koskinen & Molly Maher, Paul Cebar, Benson Ramsey (Pines), Steve Kaul (Brass Kings), and Dan “Daddy Squeeze” Newton.
