Jon Patrick Walker Biography

Jon made his professional stage debut at the age of eight, and has been a working actor for twenty-five years, appearing in film, television, and on-and off-Broadway. In 2006, Jon portrayed Bruce Springsteen in the Broadway rock musical, High Fidelity. The following year, Jon appeared in a workshop staging of a new Pete Townshend rock opera, The Boy Who Heard Music. In 2010, Jon made his debut at Carnegie Hall, portraying one of his primary musical heroes, John Lennon, in Alarm Will Sound’s 1969. In the fall of 2015, Jon worked with another musical hero, David Byrne, in a workshop production of Mr. Byrne’s Saint Joan.

In the last five years, Jon has also been writing and recording music, re-igniting a passion formed in early childhood, when he was deeply influenced by the music of the Beatles, Paul Simon, The Who and Harry Nilsson, among many others. His debut album, filled with roots-y, hook-laden rock and roll, 2013‚Äôs The Guilty Party, was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee, and co-produced with Roger Moutenot (Yo La Tengo, Sleater-Kinney, Lambchop). Jon‚Äôs follow-up, ‚ÄúPeople Going Somewhere‚ÄĚ (2016), was recorded in Brooklyn and was co-produced with Josh Kaufman, a much in-demand producer and player, who has worked with Bob Weir, Josh Ritter and Craig Finn, among many others.

Jon‚Äôs latest release, ‚ÄúYou And I‚ÄĚ (due May 11th, 2018), a six-song EP, was also co-produced with Kaufman, and features the amazing musical talents of Ray Rizzo (drums), Rene Hart (bass) and Kaufman (guitars, keys). The opening track, ‚ÄúYour Open Hand,‚ÄĚ is a duet which features Jon‚Äôs wife, the actress Hope Davis. They live with their two children in Santa Monica, California. Jon was recently on the ‚ÄúHamilton‚ÄĚ National Tour, playing King George III to rave reviews.
