“Don’t have a fallback plan, because then you’ll fall back on it.”
Jonathan Karrant didn’t grow up in the heart of Manhattan or Los Angeles, but that didn’t stop him from pursuing his dream career. Though he may be from a small town in Arkansas, he didn’t hesitate to move to New York City straight out of high school, where he found himself on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera and American Ballet Theater, before striking out for California and finally settling into the show business of Las Vegas.
Jonathan Karrant has received numerous awards, including the New York City Jazz Honors, “Best Singer” for the Bravo California Awards, and was named one of Downbeat’s top 12 rising jazz vocalists. His latest release, Shadows Fall, features duo arrangements with his longtime friend and musical collaborator, pianist Joshua White.
