Fragile Heart

by Jonathan Kasper

Kasper’s sensual, soaring vocals evoke Kenny Rankin, Stephen Bishop and Chet Baker. His chord changes dance between the pop of Burt Bacharach and the Bossa Nova of Antônio Carlos Jobim.

Jonathan Kasper was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, where he got his start as a teenage rock singer in the vibrant Western New York club scene.

A longtime Nashville, TN resident, Jonathan has traveled diverse musical roads during his adventurous career.

He has performed Led Zeppelin on stage with electric violin virtuoso Tracy Silverman and Brazilian pop music with jazz vocalist and arranger Jeff Hall. He sang a major role in Tut, a Marcus Hummon music theater piece.

On Jonathan's all-original jazz album, Fragile Heart, he worked with the legendary pianist Beegie Adair. On his power-pop album In the Know, Jonathan takes a supercharged joyride into the world of melodic rock.

As a jazz vocalist, Jonathan has dug deep into the American Songbook, and was a featured soloist with the Nashville Jazz Workshop’s vocal ensemble.

He has fronted professional Brit-rock bands, including the popular, Nashville-based Zig Zag, where he covered everything from The Beatles to The Stones, from The Who to David Bowie. He currently gigs with his original band Six Weeks to Live (6W2L).

Kasper has earned advanced degrees in the field of education, and he and his musician wife run an independent music instruction business, KasperMusic Conservatory.
