Jonah Sissoyev
Jonah Sissoyev
Jonah Sissoyev finds himself on the road often living between a black T shirt and blue jeans, a Walmart parking lots and gas stations. Since the release of SHADOW OF THE SUN, Jonah has spent most of His time touring around the country in cities such as Los Angeles, Nashville, and New York.

Growing up In the Pacific Northwest, Jonah was raised in a small town with one yellow blinking light. Pine trees, fields of corn and a crooked river.

Living now in the city of Portland, Jonah’s songwriting is similar to a honest conversation over a cup of coffee with a friend. Heavily influenced by the blues and folk music early on, sissoyev found a necessary sorrow in songwriting. “ I swear I am not a sad person, they just keep coming out this way”. a commanding gentleness, a silent strength can be heard in the melodies and lyrics.
