Preview: Jon Foreman

October 24, 2017

Ever since 1996, Jon Foreman has been rocking the music scene. Foreman has performed as the lead singer of the Christian rock band Switchfoot, alongside his brother Tim and friend Chad Butler, since 1997. The band’s rise began in 2003 with their double platinum album The Beautiful Letdown which included the hit songs “Dare You to Move” and “Meant to Live”. Because of the band’s many successes throughout the past twenty years, Jon Foreman’s influence has spread widely and even beyond Switchfoot.

Jon Foreman is a talented musician with a love for creating different kinds of music with moving messages. In 2006, as a side project Jon and a member of Nickel Creek, Sean Watkins, formed the acoustic duo Fiction Family which has two albums Fiction Family and Fiction Family Reunion.

Foreman also decided to write his own music in 2006 as a solo artist, mainly because he didn’t feel like his solo music fit within the parameters of rock music that Switchfoot performed at the time. The singer/songwriter’s solo music has an acoustic sound that differs from the upbeat rock that defines Switchfoot. Foreman’s solo career started off with the four EPs titled Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer. The first two EPs were combined in the album Fall and Winter in 2009. In 2015, Jon released the album The Wonderlands that consisted of the four EPs Sunlight, Shadows, Darkness, and Dawn. The album has 24 songs, and Jon says that there is a song for each hour of the day.

We are so excited to bring Jon Foreman back to Liberty as a solo act. Purchase tickets here to see him in the Grand Concert Hall on November 11th!
