Jon Sheffield is a quiet soul from the tiny midwest college town of Columbia, MO. Born in the grainy expanses of Missouri in 1971, Jon Sheffield has cultivated his musical compositions from that of passive hobbyist to precarious genius. His earliest releases Calves Valves and Shore Hoses demonstrated his live productions and initial interactions with digital editors. But, to remember is to think back and such pursuits become wasted precious moments in the presence of his recent work.
His releases have dotted the tiny-electronic-label landscape for years; most notably is his LP It's Been So Long Since I've Seen the Ocean on then fledging Tomlab. His music might remind you of something you've heard before (Mouse on Mars, Child's View, Sack & Blumm) but is truly like nothing else.
Weird, playful, dreamy.
