Background and touring

Growing up with a piano.

 

Jon Pold started playing classical piano at the age of 5, consequently leading to medals & competitions at "The Royal Danish Conservatory".

By the age of 11 he no longer felt passionate about the instrument and put it to rest. During these years he developed a love of music from Metallica, Cream, Iron Maiden, King Crimson, Peter Gabriel, David Bowie, Björk and Yes.

 

His father, Henning Pold, an accomplished bass player and composer toured Scandinavia through most of his childhood and his mother wrote lyrics for many artists.

 

Level 42

Shortly before his 17th birthday he experienced a live concert with Mark Kings "One Man" tour and never really forgot that night. Being from a family of bassplayers and musicians, he later that year borrowed his fathers bass, Marshall Stack and started playing. Jon was inspired by the thump of Mark King and Stanley Clarke and got more and more gigs within this musical genre.

 

Marcus Miller

During his extensive schedule, Jon got the opportunity to play a

concert with Marcus Miller during his tour. Marcus Miller was very cool and down to earth. "What's up ?, I'm Marcus" Millers cool persona was also evidenced in his feedback after the tour wishing Jon the best of luck with his career.

 

Jon Pold played in progrock band Euzen (DK,NO) during 2008-2013, subsequentely touring extensively in Germany, Denmark, Holland, and Russia.

From 2013 he joined Sylvester Larsens band and has toured Denmark, US and Germany since. From 2014 he began woking as musical director for FUNK SHUI.

Since 2015, he has used his spare time on his future release "Synergy", coming later this year !
