Georgia native, Jon Langston, has always had a love for music of all kinds, but has not always pursued a career in the music industry. Even though he had a band in 8th grade with a few hometown buddies—including longtime friend and “Issues” drummer Josh Manuel who co-produced Langston’s first two EP’s in 2013—it was nothing more than just a fun hobby for Langston at the time. Instead, Langston set his sights on playing football in high school and earned a Division I scholarship to play at North Carolina’s Gardner-Webb University in 2009. It was not until his junior year of college when he picked up the guitar again. “I suffered multiple concussions, and so the coaches, doctors, and myself decided the best thing for my health was to hang up the pads,” Langston says. “It was hard but I knew it was the right thing to do. I didn’t know what God had planned for my life at the time.” Langston turned to music after his career-ending concussions by relearning the guitar, writing his own songs and posting them on YouTube. “It is crazy how God closes one door and opens another. I had no idea what was ahead of me with the whole music world.”
