Jonathan Maharaj, JONO, is a 17 year old producer, DJ, singer, songwriter, and sound engineer surfacing from Trinidad & Tobago, a small twin island nation in the Caribbean. At the age of 11, the summer after his first year of high school, Jonathan looked further into music rather than playing instruments such as the piano and guitar. He wanted to know how do they make these Billboard no. 1 hits and chart toppers. He then discovered and learned the art of music production. In 2011 Jonathan created a remix of Ellie Goulding’s most famous single “Lights” and the remix received feedback from all over the world. Later that year he got tangled between school and his career and in early 2013 decided to take a break from all music related activities to make his learning and education his priority.

In 2015, due to the rise of Electronic Music and Trap, Jonathan decided to rejoin the game. He premiered his Soundcloud account with a deep/future house mix which received tremendous feedback and also did several guest radio mixes which were played in Brazil, the United Kingdom, The United States of America, Europe, and Australia. Jonathan also said he found it difficult to receive extravagant local support as his country is rarely aware of the rise of EDM and Trap; that is why he ventured to the international level where he made various friends.

He currently receives support from major artists in the industry like Calvin Harris, DVBBS, Sander Van Doorn, DJ SNAKE, Borgeous, Dzeko & Torres, Deorro, Wiwek, and many more. Jonathan currently has many upcoming projects such as mashups, remixes, and originals. Be sure to keep an eye on his Soundcloud. Jonathan would like to thank his friends (what he considers all his fans) and family for all their support.
