Jonathan Ramirez Band
Jonathan Ramirez was born in Baja California, Mexico. At the age of 11, his family migrated to Southern California, U.S.A., where Jonathan was raised in a melting pot of cultures and exposed to various musical genres, joining a gospel choir at the Good Samaritan Evangelical Church. He also joined a school choir which participated in festivals and competitions. Jonathan gravitated to his first instrument the acoustic guitar, and eventually piano. Throughout the years, Jonathan continued his studies of and flirtation with music. However, it wasn’t until he met Yvonne Sanchez that he realized his life would change forever. Fast forward to 2008, Yvonne is under a contractual agreement with Warner Music and Yvonne and Jonathan start working on original material which will come to be known as My Garden. After its release, My Garden reaches gold status with music award nominations in the categories of “Jazz Album of the Year” and “Album of the Year.” Jonathan continues to collaborate with various artists such as Ondrej Pivec, Robert Balzar, Klara Vytiskova and Roman Pokorny. By this time, Jonathan has composed enough original material to form his new group, “SKEPTEMISTIC.” Jonathan is also involved in other projects as a singer, instrumentalist, and songwriter. These projects include the Yvonne Sanchez Latin Quartet, Jonathan Ramirez Salsa Band, Yvonne Sanchez Band, SKEPTEMISTIC, and ongoing collaborations like his latest with B/Y Organism where he wrote and performed a poem he wrote called “FLOW” which was used as an outro to B/Y’s Organism freshmen album The beginning.
