Lead singer and guitarist for Switchfoot
Jon Foreman is the lead singer and guitarist of the Grammy Award winning rock band Switchfoot. He is also known for his intimate solo albums and his work with the band Fiction Family. Over the years, Foreman has become known for his honest lyrics, highly prolific song-writing, and his involvement in various humanitarian endeavors: Habitat for Humanity, The ONE Campaign, Not For Sale, Invisible Children, Life Rolls On, and To Write Love On Her Arms.
Switchfoot was formed in 1996 and has been making music ever since. This acclaimed live band has played thousands of sold out concerts, sold more than five million records, had more than a few radio hits, and have had their songs used in countless films and TV shows. Foreman's songs have been covered by a wide array of artists, from Taylor Swift to Cyprus Hill to, again, more than just a few, American Idol contestants.
Switchfoot's first self-released full length movie came out at the end of 2013. It's entitled Fading West. The film follows the band around the globe looking for surfable waves and inspiration. Switchfoot's 9th studio album, also titled Fading West, serves as a soundtrack of sorts for the film and was released in early 2014 on Atlantic Records.
Switchfoot also hosts their Annual Switchfoot Bro-Am, a music and surfing event benefiting homeless kids in the band's hometown of San Diego. Through his music and other endeavors, Jon is looking to communicate a hope for the postmodern era.
