Jonathan is an Award Winning Author and Amazon #1 Best Seller (in both paperback and digital sales) who writes to support the expansion of human consciousness.
Born in southern England in the mid 60's, by the early 1980's Jonathan's deep love of music was expressed through contemporary singing and song writing. After the usual bands, circuits and gigs, he came into contact with London based Hard Times Productions. A rewarding relationship blossomed, resulting in the release of several records, session work, jingles, TV advertising and more.
In 1987, Jonathan underwent an interesting short stint as the lead singer of Frankie Goes To Hollywood following the departure of lead vocalist Holly Johnson. At the close of his pop music career in 1990 he was awarded a gold disc for his lead vocals on the Telstar compilation album "Get on This 2", which sold over 100,000 copies, going to number 2 in the UK album charts.
From '97 onwards he underwent a series of phenomena and transformational experiences which radically altered his consciousness, causing him to look closely at human identity, making him aware of what he describes as the "Divine I-less nature of Reality".
In 2003, with the teaching, encouragement and support of one of Canada's foremost spiritual teachers, the Rev. Brian Robertson, Jonathan developed a powerful and profound musical healing technique called Spiritone ™.
Never having written before, and following a mystical near death experience in 2007, he penned his first book ‘We Are All One: A Call to Spiritual Uprising’. Written in just six days, the critically acclaimed book was the WINNER of the 2009 All Books International Editor's Choice Award (USA) in the Spirituality & Inspiration category.
In January 2009 he was invited to teach alongside Barbara Marx Hubbard, Esther Hicks (Abraham, Law of Attraction, and The Secret) Steve and Barbara Rother (Lightworker.com) and others on www.worldchangingwisdom.com - subsequently he was offered his own seminar series with leading edge US company Conscious Alliances.
Jonathan's second book 'Naked Being: Undressing Your Mind, Transforming Your Life' - was published by O books on the 28th May 2010. Further kudos followed when it was honoured as a Best Books Award Finalist 2010 (USA Book News) in the genre of Spirituality.
This following excerpt is from ‘Naked Being’:
'The human struggle is a search for Wholeness. We spend our lives trying to be complete. We begin by accumulating as much material wealth, status, power, honour and conditioned versions of 'success' as we possibly can, but in the end all of these are found to be lacking. None of them can be sustained, for they are mind made creations. We realise that the meaning we seek is never going to be found outside of ourselves, and so we begin to search inside. When we delve deeply into our core, we find that our inner being is mystifyingly empty - empty of self. Within this emptiness, the fullness of LIFE is uncovered. From this non-dual awakening we see all 'things' as illusory because the world of form is recognised to be fleeting and in a sense 'unreal'. As awareness deepens, a real grounding and balancing of the poles of being occurs. The non-dual Spirit becomes established in the duality of the body and the world, providing a practical way for Naked Being to manifest. A rounded Wholeness arises from accepting the outer self to be the way your non-dual Nature is released into the world. You now know yourself to be a unique individual following the ONE essence of LIFE called Spirit.' -
Many articles, poems and quotes of his work have appeared in magazines and associated websites worldwide. Over the years he has been appeared in; Kindred Spirit Magazine, Cosmic Lighthouse, Mystic Pop, Yoga Magazine, Paradigm Shift, High Spirit Magazine, Nonduality.com, Searchlighton.com and more. An article on 'Naked Being' was published in the highly respected Watkins Review in early 2012, and Jonathan was interviewed by Iain McNay on Conscious TV (now available through Sky TV).

Jonathan has recently collaborated with US Grammy Award winning Composer Richard Theisen. Together, they have recorded and arranged music and chants Jonathan intuitively 'heard' in southern France whilst writing 'The Soul Whisperer'. The material is being recorded at 528 Hz, a frequency where the words, music and 'classical' tone converge and penetrate deep into the recesses of the sub-conscious mind, promoting well-being, healing and transformation. www.theisenproductions.com
Jon Pogioli a talented, creative scriptwriter has also come on board with the team, penning a quality film script of 'The Soul Whisperer' for prospective TV and film companies.
Jonathan is currently working on a series of three non-fiction e-books entitled 'The Mystic Chronicles' as well as completing the final mixes to an album of inspirational pop/rock, and a second CD of intuited classical music, poetry and sacred chants.
'YOU ARE THIS - Awakening to the Living Presence of Your Soul' is to be published by MANTRA BOOKS in January 2016. 'YOU ARE THIS' is a holistic guide to the expansion and evolution of human consciousness, sharing the journey from duality to non-duality and into the newly emerging consciousness - which the author describes as "Soulness, the One-dual consciousness of the Soul."
Jonathan sees words and music as powerful tools of transformation, and something very much needed in the world today…
