Jon Itkin

Jon Itkin is a Rochester-based Americana singer-songwriter. Drawing inspiration from story writers like Raymond Carver and Denis Johnson and the knotty veins of American roots music, Itkin blends quirky narratives with rustic melodies into a sound No Depression magazine once called "filled with the cautious joy of rediscovery." Itkin is taking a momentary aside from his usual role in bluegrass band The Crooked North to release "Brakelight Ocean Blvd," a solo EP recorded in Brooklyn nearly a decade ago.
