Jonny Blu is a uniquely talented singer/songwriter who was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA, but made his debut into the music world in of all places China. After making a success in China, and appearing in the Disney blockbuster film Princess Diaries 2, Jonny has returned to the United States to promote his career further, going back to his musical roots in Swing and Pop. Uniquely among his contemporaries, most of Blu's songs are actually written by him. With a smooth pop feel, blended with hints of cool jazz and blues, Jonny's music, lyrics and vocal style really will put you in just that kind of a mood.
While his path in the music industry is rare, it suits Jonny perfectly. Following his success in China he is currently living in Los Angeles and focusing on promoting his recently released 3rd studio album Taboo! and his previous independent releases, the swingin' EP release In A Groove (2008) and his original debut Swing/Pop CD In Just That Kind of a Mood (2007). In A Groove is a digital only release with four Jonny Blu originals and a swingin' remake of the Burt Bacharach classic Always Something There to Remind Me. In Just That Kind of a Mood contains six original songs as well as standards by artists ranging from the classic Cole Porter to LL Cool J, all with Blu's own contemporary spin. Songs like the title track In That Kind of a Mood, Smilin' Eyes and Ooh-Wee are examples of Jonny Blu's natural gift for songwriting and love for music.
