Jonah has created some truly inspired work in his career. I was fortunate to work with him in Pyramaze, lending vocal arrangements to his haunting composition “Legacy In A Rhyme.” This is one of my favorite pieces of all time!

Jonah’s keyboard playing and improvisational skills are in a league of their own. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on several projects over the years, both producing and mixing his various endeavors. He should be anyone’s go to for epic/cinematic keyboard work.

Jonah has the amazing ability of being able to bring a song to life. His keyboard parts bring both depth and soul to a song that I didn’t know it needed ‘till I heart it. Combining epic orchestral operatic parts, impressive solos and just beautiful melodies... Jonah’s playing really takes the music to the next level and gives it new life.
— MIKE HARSHAW, DRUMMER (ANNIHILATOR)
