"Mullane's songs have a mass appeal, not just in North America but globally...”
Bob Mersereau, Telegraph Journal
In 2008, Jon’s song Make You Move was chosen by NBC TV for their Summer Olympic promo commercials. The tune brought Jon’s sound to North America in a big way. It achieved multi-format chart success and garnered extensive radio airplay. In 2009, Make You Move was nominated for Single of the Year at the East Coast Music Awards.
“Shift continued where my last album, The Source, left off – a shift in momentum, a shift in direction, and a shift in energy”, says Jon. "Now it's time to Shine"
Released through Universal Canada in 2007, Jon’s ‘renaissance debut’ The Source , produced by Haywire’s David Rashed, found success internationally through Jon’s following in Europe and Asia as well as in North America. The power pop single, Go The Distance garnered extensive radio play in Canada and hit the number one position on the iconic U.S. music industry publication Cashbox on their Indie Rock chart. The album also received a 4 ½ star review from the magazine.
Having lost both parents while still very young, then overcoming a potentially career-ending case of tinnitus, Jon Mullane has laid everything on the line for his career. Whether it's his fascination with UFOs (hence, the name-source of his own Flying Disc Records), his status as a former tennis pro, his degree in psychology or even his venturing towards law school – before being wisely put back on the music path by those who recognized his emerging talent, it's the music that mattered most. For Jon Mullane, music IS life.
