Jstu

JStu is Jon Stewart and Jon Amodeo. Efrat Shapira was also a member for the Star Struck CD.

Jon Stewart was born in SoCal and his lived most of his life there or in the NYC Metropolitan area because he is bi-coastal and bi-polarbear, his spirit animal. Jon is mostly self-taught on the keyboards but did have accordion lessons in his youth and classes with Kenny Barron, the legendary jazz pianist, at Rutgers University. Jon has written hundreds of songs and just getting around to recording and releasing them. He records in his home J-Studio and has been co-writing and collaborating with artists world-wide using Skype and other techology.

Jon Amodeo is a gifted musician, producer, performer, engineer, teacher, mentor. He often added guitar, drums, saxophone, and whatever other instruments he thought were needed to each song. He took raw recordings in simple mixes and brought them to life. Jon always shares his knowledge and techniques freely. Jon owns and runs the Amodeo Music Studio when he's not performing.


The extremely talented Efrat Shapira not only played and/or sang on 7 of the 11 songs on the Star Struck CD, but arranged her complex violin and viola tracks, but also supported, guided, believed in, and inspired JStu. She played on 3 more tracks on the Save Us CD. Efrat performs often, mostly in New Jersey, and recently released her own CD, Silver Linings, also available on this website.
