Jon Lemmon

Golden Dawn


Born in California, Jon ended in up Wellington at the age of 19 and quickly found his place in the vibrant underground New Zealand music scene, known for its community-mindedness and Do It Together attitude. He found his sound playing underground festivals in the middle of the dense New Zealand forests, a style of music that was intrinsic to the land and the scene he found himself in. Lemmon’s debut single ‘It’s Gonna Be Alright’ comes bounding out with warm, euphoric tones, bright synths and a futuristic aesthetic. Its core is a creative optimism, an infectious mantra that hope is stronger than fear, and that as humans we have far more in common with each other than we often believe. And this music is all about believing. It’s modern dance unshackled by contemporary anxiety. It's the visionary optimism of a sixties movement. It’s made by a guy whose name really is Jon Lemmon.
