BIOGRAPHY
At 21 years old, after a brief stint with a punk band, Jonn Savannah auditioned to become a founder member of the Sinceros, who signed a world-wide deal with Epic Records and released two critically acclaimed albums. During this time Jonn also played with Lene Lovich on the second Stiff Records Tour. After the Sinceros split up he embarked on a UK and American tour with Bill Nelson and the Practical Dreamers.

Jonn then joined Squeeze and worked on their album Sweets from a Stranger. While Squeeze were taking a break Jonn co-produced 25 Years - a self-penned single, quickly picked up by Metronome Records in Germany and released all over Europe under the name of The Catch. While the promotional campaign for the single was building in Germany Jonn played with Judie Tzuke on a short UK tour, subsequently teaming up with drummer Chris Whitten to perform 25 Years on German television, after which the single sold half a million copies and reached number 3, remaining in the charts for 40 weeks. The Catch recorded two albums and several singles for Metronome racking up a total of three quarters of a million sales. In 1988 Jonn secured a recording contract with Polydor Records in Germany - a single, Ordinary Girl, was released in the late summer of 1989. Jonn produced a remake of 25 Years for Hansa Records in Germany, and an album was released by Hansa late in 1991. Another single, A Man's Gotta Do What A Man's Gotta Do, was released on East West Records in February 1992.

Jonn was selected to play with Tina Turner for the European leg of her mammoth fifteen month Break Every Rule tour in 1987 and in 1990 Jonn played with the John Lennon Tribute band in Liverpool, rejoining Squeeze in 1991 for their American and British tours. He then toured with Procol Harum in 1992 and later that year joined the Van Morrison band. Jonn joined Squeeze for the third time in 1995 and in 1998 worked yet again with Van Morrison.

Jonn began working on the American Idol series in 2002, tuning the vocals for the contestants. In 2005 he relocated to Medford, New Jersey, where he set up Jonn Savannah Music, an umbrella organization for music writing, recording and education. In 2018 Jonn moved to Cherry Hill, New Jersey and founded Music NJ, replacing Jonn Savannah Music.
