Having made his name as a guitar player with legendary UK blues band The Hoax, Jon Amor has established himself as a fine singer/songwriter in his own right, releasing a string of highly acclaimed solo albums.
Nominated numerous times for ‘Guitarist Of The Year’ awards, Jon has recorded with the likes of Robert Plant and Clive Deamer (Portishead, Radiohead), and has played guitar alongside Buddy Guy, Van Morrison, Billy Bragg and more.
2019 saw the release of a new studio album – ‘Colour In The Sky’. It features guest performances from Ian Siegal, Paddy Milner, Bob Fridzema, Joel Fisk, among others, and showcases Jon’s wide-ranging – and never predictable – songwriting talents.
Having toured the album with a highly-acclaimed live show in 2019, Jon plays #ColneBlues2020 with an all-star band, to perform the new songs, as well as some select choices from his extensive back catalogue.
