Interview with Jon Omen (@the.legend.of.jon.omen)
Thank you so much for joining us! Tell us about yourself?
Well, I am Jon Omen. Born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah. I am a musician and songwriter trying to make a name for myself by giving our best music to the world.
So, how did you start your career? What was the time when you realized this is the right career for you?
I started my musical journey at the age of fourteen. I think it happened because I played in bands, which forced me to write music. However, when I was in the Military, I forced myself to write as I had no instruments to play. Honestly, it was the best thing that happened as it made me fall for this field altogether. It was then I decided this is the right path for me.
You are a true inspiration for all. Do you have any tips for your fans who want to follow their dreams like you?
I would say all of us have qualities that set us apart from others. Just believe in yourself and stay true to yourself. Know what works best for you, not for others. I know we live in a society where we are constantly comparing ourselves with others. Just believe in yourself. Only if you are true to yourself and following your passion can you achieve anything.
Is there anyone who inspired you to be where you are?
It was definitely The Neighborhood, AJR, and Foster The People who inspired me to find my own sound and start my solo journey as a musician.
Since you have been in this field for so long, is there any memory that is your favorite?
I think it would be when I got to work with Oscar and Grammy award-winning producer Robert Smith on North Star.
