Jonathan Scales

International touring and recording artist Jonathan Scales has garnered a loyal following of music lovers by pushing the steel drums into a musically adventurous realm of contemporary jazz, changing listener’s perspectives of the traditional Caribbean instrument often stereotypically associated with sandy beaches and cruise ship vacations. Scales has released 5 albums and has performed in 14 countries across 4 continents with his progressive sound that Jazz Times calls “joyously inventive.”
