Jonny Rostamabadi is a soulful Pop/R&B/Rock singer, songwriter, and pianist. Born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan, his musical journey began as at the young age of 4. Drawn to the piano, he began lessons with family friend and church organist, James Muszynski. Over the next several years, he excelled rapidly, learning more advanced materials.
Jonny continued developing his piano skills throughout high school, and at the same time began taking vocal lessons at the prompting of his teachers. Actively involved in both the music and theater programs, he experienced a number of successes on stage and in competitions. By late high school, Jonny made the decision to focus his career towards performing arts.
