Jonah Kay is an up and coming guitar player in a band called Three Crowns out of Kitchener, Ontario, Canada. 

Jonah was surrounded by music as a child and went through playing many instruments including piano, trumpet, tuba and drums. 

He moved on to the guitar at age 15 through a high school music program. Private guitar lessons followed and then, at age 19, he purchased his first seven string electric which is now his preferred instrument. 

Currently Jonah is studying in Tom Hess's improvisation training classes and online guitar lessons to develop his musical skills further and is being mentored by Tom in the program about building a music career.

Jonah’s musical influences range from classical to heavy metal to fusion jazz and movie soundtracks. Some of his favourite artists are Rusty Cooley, Guthrie Govan, John Petrucci, Alexi Laiho, and many others.

Next came the formation of Jonah’s first band, BraVurA. After a couple of line up changes, they released their first 5 song demo in September 2008, and a full length album in December 2010.

This album was named 10th best album of 2011 on Now Jonah is playing in a Hardcore/Metal band Three Crowns in the Kitchener area. The band released a 5 song EP in July 2011 called "The Resistance".

Then in March 2013 the band released their full length “Commodity” on Famined Records. After some growing musical and personal differences Jonah left the band and is now currently working on a guitar driven collaboration instrumental album called Technically Yours.

About The Music Careers Mentoring Program, Jonah has this to say to Tom Hess:

"In the Music Careers mentoring Program, one of the things you had me doing was visualizing the biggest best moment in slow motion. I had turned this into a type of meditation and held on to that image on a daily basis. This vision was playing on a huge stage at night in front of an endless crowd with the lights and fire and nitrous canons, confetti canons and as much detail as I could think of in there.

From the relentless mindset training, vision building to constant action, implementation and practicing to be always ready I was able to accept an opportunity in less the 24 hours notice.

I got to play in my home town at one of the biggest festivals to come here to date, with a crowd of about 18,000 people. Although it was only one show, that moment was made clear and I was ready in my mind right from when you helped make that clear vision in the Music Careers Mentoring Program. Almost ALL the details lined up exactly what I thought it would be like.

So I just wanted to say thanks for the mentoring."
