ARTIST OF THE DAY
Jon Foreman is the lead singer, guitarist, main songwriter and co-founder of the band Switchfoot, which he founded back in 1996 with his brother Tim and friend Chad.
History: Jon Foreman was born in San Bernardino County, California, but his family moved to Massachusetts and Virginia Beach during his childhood. There he became fast friends with Todd Cooper, who encouraged him to learn guitar. (Cooper was later a guitar tech for Switchfoot) After several years the Foreman family moved back to Southern California, this time settling in San Diego, where Jon attended UC San Diego and later dropped out to follow his singing career.
Besides fronting Switchfoot, Jon actively writes with other musicians. He's released numerous solo projects (including the Limbs & Branches Collection: Fall, Winter, Spring & Summer) and has another band called Fiction Family, comprised of himself and Nickel Creek member Sean Watkins.
Home: Jon and his wife Emily, plus most of his family still call San Diego home.
