Jon was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah and began writing music at age 14, along with participating in other art forms, including performing in a Disney movie. After high school, he turned down a chemistry scholarship to join the Marine Corps. During his service, he placed roots near the city in his twenties when he gained acquaintances at a local studio, where he was able to create music and receive industry advice on how to succeed as an artist. He played in several bands around the city, playing mostly rock and alternative.
After deciding to reinvent himself, he began a solo project, trying to find new sounds. With inspiration from Foster The People, The Neighborhood, and AJR, Jon has been able to create a sound entirely his own. He has released numerous singles, with the hope to release his full album in 2022.
Alongside his solo project, Jon Omen is lead singer for Salt Lake City band - The Starkillers. Their first releases are expected for late 2022.
