My manifesto🙂

From my Instagram: http://instagram.com/p/xqoSwBikNg/

There is no man behind the curtain. There is no marketing team. There’s just me. I write this #music because I #need to. I engineer, produce and #master the music. I #create the #art, #design the #website, take (almost) all the #photos, send the tweets and write the posts. Because I get to. Music and art have given me the #courage to be me – not a caricature. #Thanks for #following me on this #journey so far.🙂

#Love, Jon G. (DJ FM)

It’s just me.
