Jon Rodine & Friends

Authentic, unpretentious...funky, heartbreaking
— Star-Tribune

Jon Rodine is a singer and songwriter, based in Minnesota.

Drawing on sources like Dan Penn, Doug Sahm, Bob Dylan and beyond, his music is songdriven, a blend of Americana, groove-oriented rock’n’roll and country soul. His latest album “Last Star”--his first collection of original material--has been getting notice around the country. “Eleven songwriting gems” says, but “his strongest asset is his voice”. “Authentic, unpretentious...funky, heartbreaking”, said Ellen Stanley, in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune.

He’s shared the bill with artists like Ralph Stanley, Fred Eaglesmith, Tom Russell, The Pines and Jimmy LaFave. He plays and has recorded with some the finest musicians in the Midwest---Dave Ray & Tony Glover, Erik Koskinen & Molly Maher, Paul Cebar, Benson Ramsey (Pines), Steve Kaul (Brass Kings), and Dan “Daddy Squeeze” Newton.

Local musician and Red House employee Jon Rodine took some time out of the day to play a brief set in the Storage Room with Dean Magraw. Jon is our MN Songwriter Spotlight performer for Barnfest 2012 and will kick off the festival at 1:00! "Hey You" is from his album Last Star!
