Jonny recording in his near future?
Radio 2 has posted a wonderful interview with Jonathan recorded during the 2010 Abu Dhabi Film Festival. He talks about his travels in the area, his career experiences, Belle du Seigneur, as well as talks about his family during which Jonathan reveals information about recording next year with his brother! Unfortunately, the interviewer didn’t follow up to find out more! Here’s a transcript from the part where he mentions this:
Accalia: You come from quite a musical, creative family, don’t you?
Jonathan: Yah, my dad is a musician. He’s been a gigging musician, what we call a working musician his whole life.
My brother’s a singer/songwriter. I’m doing some recording with him in the new year.
I have another brother who plays for an alternative rock band on the East Coast of the United States. They’re becoming very popular. They’re doing some gigs. They got an award recently in Los Angeles so he’s kind of alternative rock, prog rock they call it, progressive rock. And he’s an incredibly talented musician. He’s a bass player, but a technical bass player so he’s playing for his own band but then he’s doing session work with a lot of people… a lot of reggae bands, a lot of soul and blues artists, and stuff like that.
Accalia: Do you consider yourself a musician?
Accalia: But I’ve seen your films where you’ve sung though.
Jonathan: I have sung but I don’t consider myself a muscian. I have another brother whose a wonderful drummer, and he’s a wonderful musician but he’s actually working on the TV series Hawaii Five-0.
Accalia: That’s so cool.
Jonathan: He’s wife is assistant to the lead actor Alex O’Loughlin. And Jamie is the stand in for Scott Caan.
Accalia: Creative family then.
