|Jon Rant||Vocals, Guitar|
Jon Rant is a singer, songwriter, and musician who has written more than 250 songs during his life. He wrote his first song in September of 1969, on his first day in California, where he had flown from his native Long Island to attend Stanford University. During his four years at Stanford, he wrote more than 100 songs, laying the foundation for pursuing a career in music after graduating in 1973.
Rant spent the next 8 years in Los Angeles fighting the rock 'n' roll wars, and ultimately wrote a total of more than 250 songs before leaving the music business in the early 1980s. He moved back to the Bay Area and embarked on a highly successful career as a freelance writer specializing in marketing and advertising communications for technology companies.
After a hiatus of more than 20 years, Rant resumed his songwriting activities and formed a band after returning to his native Long Island in 2004. He wrote and played actively for six years before retiring from the field in 2010. He currently lives in Palm Springs, California, and sings and plays for personal enjoyment—because rock'n' roll never forgets.
