International recording artist Jon Lucien has never wanted for devotion from his legions of fans. The artist appears to transcend the usual expectations of celebrity; calling his admirers ‘fans’ does not pay tribute to how they embrace his absolute humanity. At long last, Mr. Lucien has created a spot in cyberspace for his devotees to slake their thirst for news and contact.
There is a busy simplicity about the index page, which contains links to a bio, email contact, a photo gallery, media reviews, events calendar, booking information, releases, and Lucien’s ‘song poems’ – transcriptions of lyrics from Jon’s oeuvre that are refreshed periodically. RealAudio samples exist throughout the discography page, with a personal greeting from Jon on the first page.
JonLucien.com is hosted at JazzCorner, which publishes dozens and dozens of other Jazz artisans; its gateway links are at the top of each page. For those who would like to order titles, secure server ordering is available through JazzCorner; once you click the ‘order now’ buttons on the discography page, you will need to choose the ‘E-L’ (by artist’s last name) button and scroll to the list of works that are available from Jon Lucien.
Jon Lucien’s website combines functionality with a sense of cool – you will want to bookmark this puppy!
Note: His web site remains online. Jon Lucien’s may be found for now at iTunes. He is still very much missed…
