About Jon Nichols

Born and raised in Southern California, Jon took an interest in the guitar at a young age. He taught himself how to pay the instrument and formed his first band at the age of 15. 

Over the next years he was playing professionally in different bands and did numerous recording sessions. With thousands of gigs under his belt, he secured a record deal with Thump Records in 2000, with his band Shovelhead. 

Upon the release of their first album, Music From The Canyon, he received a phone call from Grammy nominated singer-songwriter Beth Hart, who was in need of a guitar player. 

Jon has been her right-hand man ever since, being her musical director and lead guitar player. 

He has toured all over the world with Beth Hart, performed on numerous television and radio shows and has been co-writing with her for over 16 years. He has been lucky enough to share the stage with the likes of Jeff Beck, Slash, and Joe Bonamassa, to name a few. While not on tour with Beth Hart, Jon fronts The Jon Nichols Band and does solo-acoustic performances.

Jon is currently using the Vintage Icon Series V6MRSSB and V52MRBS guitars as part of his main touring and recording setup.
