— Downbeat magazine - june 2016, LA Music Blog 2016 -


Named by the industry-defining Downbeat Magazine as a "name to watch as a signature voice on the Los Angeles jazz scene" and described by LA Music Blog as "a musical juggernaut" Rowden's unique voice and penchant combining driving grooves, melodic-minded composition, and free improvisation is turning heads across the country. 

Along with his ever-evolving band, the Jonathan Rowden Group, Rowden has quickly gained a reputation as one of the foremost young creative-music artists in the diverse LA jazz and creative music scene, frequently defying genre-stereotypes while drawing from his background and interests in classical, jazz, rock and electronic musical idioms. His 2017 album "Skyward Eye" on Orenda Records is cinematic in scope and aims to bring his musical narrative to life as few other modern music groups can. 

Supportive performances and masterclasses/clinics available.
