Jonathan picked up both the piano and the violin at the age of 6 and began taking a serious interest in dance during his high school years in the U.S. He continued his artistic pursuits at Cornell University, double majoring in Dance and Psychology while acting as musical director and arranger for the A Cappella group "Last Call" there. His vocal arrangements and solo performances helped "Last Call" secure numerous national and international awards, while his achievements in dance made him the single recipient of the 2008 Cornell Undergraduate Artist Award.
Jonathan released his debut album in Cantonese/ Mandarin/ English in October 2009 and his 2nd album in June 2010, with lead singles that became instant hits on the Hong Kong and Guangzhou pop charts.
In June 2010, Jonathan joined Avex, a top music records label in Japan, and became the first ever international artist jointly developed by the music group's domestic and international departments.
In January 2011, Jonathan will perform as a special guest of the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra in two concerts at the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. It will be an exciting crossover as Jonathan's own compositions, characterized by R&B and Hip Hop rhythms, will be rearranged and performed by an ensemble of 80 highly accomplished musicians.
