Jon Bellion – Electric Factory – Philadelphia, PA – November 22, 2016
The Rise of Jon Bellion from His All Time Low.
Jon Bellion. It is a name you may have not heard before, but one you will definitely hear again. His new single (which you may have heard), “All Time Low” off of his new album Human Condition, reached number 32 on Billboard‘s Top 100 charts. Currently Jon is touring the country showing off his amazing new music. It’s amazing because all of his tour dates are sold out, right?
While Jon Bellion astounded the audience on his tour, he is not just a pretty voice with some great moves. Jon is a credited songwriter, composer, producer, artist and vocalist. Some of his tunes can be heard in albums by Jason Derulo, Zedd, B.o.B, Andy Grammer, Timeflies, just to name a few. After a while, Jon decided he wanted to work, not only behind the scenes, but in front of the scene as well. After this bold move, he never turned back.
Bellion’s entire tour sold out completely, showing, crystal clear, that his talent has affected the nation. Unlike most concerts we have been to, the energy at his concert only grew as his performance went on. Towards the end, he gave a speech that drew the whole crowd in. You could hear a pin drop as everyone listened to each of his words carefully.
Bellion didn’t always have it easy. He was not always this superstar. He was, as he put it, “just a normal guy.” Bellion went on to explain that two years ago he “sang at a bar for 90 people in Philadelphia.” He also said that if he was on the stage, any of the audience members could be on the stage as well. His positive words and outlook just makes us love him even more.
Bellion does things that many have not done. He does things his label advises not to do – all for the better. He was advised not to have his album art the way he does, which is quite different. If you were to look at his album art (and merchandise), you would see cool artwork and cartoon characters.
The artwork and cartoon characters are themed from a movie entitled The Human Condition, which also became the title of his album. Of course, it is a movie that no one will ever see, because it is not an actual movie – the artwork is the only existing aspect from the fictional movie. Jon insists that if you have a vision inside your head, like the “weird” artwork, you should go for it. Nobody can look inside and see what you see. His powerful words created an admiration for not only the singer but the person.
Overall, Jon Bellion is a raw talent. We can’t wait to see what else he has in store for us in the future. In the meantime, we can keep listening to his hit songs “All Time Low” and “Guillotine,” not to mention the rest of his album. Oh did we mention that he will be opening up for Twenty One Pilots in March? We will be there too.
