Alweer 10 jaar geleden zijn eerste EP 'Almost Home' opgenomen, een mix van jazz/po, veranderde zijn leven. Drie albums verder en honderden shows verder, komt volgende maand zijn nieuwe album 'STOP TIME' uit van het label Motéma Music.

Geproduceerd door Mitchell Froom (Paul McCartney, Crowded House), en met leden van Elvis Costello's band Imposters, is het album al aardig opgemerkt bij de Amerikaanse Pers.



EARLY PRAISE FOR JON REGEN’S STOP TIME



These tunes range from beautifully melodic to funky and fun. Great, great playing and vocals, infectious soulful grooves… Stop Time never stops pleasing the ears.

Chuck Leavell, THE ROLLING STONES


Regen is a confident, soulful singer.

Eric Danton, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL


Wow. I love this. The album has a consistent vibe  – spare, intimate arrangements and prominent piano. It sustains brilliantly, and I love the rootsy touches. And the songwriting is terrific. I hate to sound as if I’m gushing, but I think you've outdone yourself here.

Nick Cristiano, PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER


This is an album to be proud of. I like its understated vibe and stripped-down feel, and the Randy Newman vibe is there. I'm still playing it, which is a clear sign it's a grower.

Mark Beech, BLOOMBERG


Stop Time is a gem of direct songwriting and elegant playing.

Benmont Tench, TOM PETTY & THE HEARTBREAKERS


I really dig it. I love the vibe – it’s sophisticated but grooves, and the songs are sharply written. It’s a fresh spin on a classic singer/songwriter record.

Stephen Thomas Erlewine, ALLMUSIC.COM


Fan-freaking-tastic! Great tunes. Wonderful vocal performances. Elegant. You’ve got it all going on.

Jeff Slate, ESQUIRE


The album is a joy to listen to.

Larry Crane, TAPE OP


Regen has a remarkable voice and the original songs are superb.

Marc Myers, JAZZWAX
