Jon Shabaglian is a gifted artist who combines strong musicality with edifying lyrical content. Taking you on an engaging journey where you begin to feel the plans and purposes of our Creator in a personal way. Jon performed throughout Northern and Southern California as the lead singer and keyboardist of the band Return for 3 years. They played in such venues were Spirit West Coast (A Christian music festival attracting approximately 60,000 people annually), concerts with other groups such as Switchfoot, Tree 63, Larue, etc., as well as individual churches. He\'s recorded a professionally mixed and mastered CD selling a thousand copies. He also, traveled two summers with the band Lightstream as the lead vocalist and keyboardist, touring several city youth concerts and churches on the east coast of Australia. He has interviewed with and performed for local T.V. & radio stations including FOX Channel 26, Channel 24, ABC Channel 30, NBC Channel 47, and Infinity Broadcasting Radio Station Star 101 and Alice 96.7. In 2006, he released his first solo album entitled \'Stay Near\' with 3 time Grammy nominated and 4 time dove award winner, producer Quinlan! Since May of 2006, the reviews have been outstanding (read CD Baby's review) and has already sold over 1000 copies. In the spring of 2007 Jon was awarded the grand prize for a national music competition called \'Artist Ovation\' and was invited to play at Spirit West Coast-Del Mar (another huge music festival). Not only was the exciting but because he won the grandprize, Jon and the band are invited to compete in Nashville,TN in November for a Word record deal. Jon also just competed at the GMA national competition-Music and the Rockies and took 2nd in the Urban competition! This is a huge honor as well, as this is the pristine national competition for the Christian Music Industry. And June 1st of 2008 Jon debuted his new EP called \'Like the Moon\' at the Grizzlies stadium in concert with Todd Agnew. In all of the opportunities and achievements, Jon's passion is simply to take God's hand and people's hand, and put them together. And we pray that his music will continue to be a part of that Kingdom work.
