"Jon Regen has a rare combination of elements - virtuosic playing ability, soulful singing, and a strong songwriting talent, all developing more and more as he grows and grows as an artist through the years. Give him a freaking listen!” – Bruce Hornsby
August 1, 2019: The New York-based singer, songwriter and acclaimed pianist Jon Regen has released the title track to his forthcoming album Higher Ground out October 4 via Ropeadope. This morning, Forbes premiered the song, which features a cameo from his son Gabriel.
The album was produced by Jamiroquai's Matt Johnson and includes musical performances by legends like Andy Summers of The Police, Benmont Tench of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Chuck Leavell of The Rolling Stones, Nick Rhodes of Duran Duran and more. The album is available for pre-order starting tomorrow, August 2, and includes instant downloads of "Wide Awake" and "Higher Ground."
"I took a break from songwriting after my son was born, but when 'Higher Ground' showed-up, I knew it marked the beginning of a new musical chapter for me," explains Regen. "It’s probably the most honest song I’ve ever written, and one about me realizing how everything is different now that I’m a parent. The fact that my son giggled while I was recording the vocals in my New York apartment was an added bonus!"
