Jon Ingels is a guitarist and singer/songwriter from Waynesboro, Pennsylvania who has written music for Big Whiskey, the Boro Boogie Pickers, Slackwater 4, and the Lowdown Grasskickers.  Jon's lyrical content is a mixture of storytelling, timeless topics, and geographic imagery backed by folk chord patterns, simple melodies, and a blues driven rhythm.   His songwriting influences include Steve Earle, Jim Lauderdale, Bob Dylan, and Richard Thompson. His guitar influence are Duane Allman, BB King, T-Bone Walker, Jerry Garcia, and

In his solo performances Jon draws from all his influences ranging from blues to country, rock to reggae, and all points in between! While his "acoustic" shows are typically stripped down to basics, Jon has been experimenting with looping technology to layer rhythms and melodies for a one man band experience sure to keep your foot tapping along, and leave you humming a song!


Jon’s 3rd solo album, A Nomad’s Manifesto, was release in April 2015. Jon plays guitar, dobro, bass, and mandolin, as well as lead and harmony vocals. Drum tracks were partly arranged and looped by Jon on some tracks, while others tracks were laid down by Slackwater 4 drummer, Brian Forberger.  The entire album was recorded at various locations with his Mac Book Pro using Apple’s Logic Pro Studio.   

The 12 tracks on this cd could most solidly defined as a roots rock endeavor, but Jon’s songs draw from a broad influence, with hints of bluegrass, blues, psychedelic rock, and old time honky-tonk.   Unlike his previous two solo efforts, Music from Big Slack Water, and Blue Rock Skyline, that seemed wander from genre to genre from song to song, this recording stays focused with a theme, lyrically and melodically.  The lyrical content from each song is a direct reflection of the album title, A Nomad’s Manifesto.   Over the last two years Jon has been focusing most of his attention toward his solo show.  He’s been working hard to get his name out there and do his songs, his way, on his own.  Lyrically the themes are about solitude and sometimes isolation, but can also be interpreted as independence and the serenity of finding one’s self.  The opening track, Never that Easy, starts with a bleak outlook on life, the storm lifts in track two, Borders, with a more self-aware look at life’s challenges. Borders could be interpreted as physical boundaries or perhaps personal obstacles we find ourselves challenged to overcome.  Many of the compositions carry a yin and yang theme.  Take a look at Growing into the Unknown, which is about two people on a journey, reflecting on the past and the future, as individuals, each on their own, but finding a common comfort in support of one another.

Above all, this album represents a turning point in Jon’s musical career.  It is his most refined effort so far.  He is finding his sound and bringing it to the people weekly at venues around South Central PA and the Tristate area.  For more information visit his website at
