Do it for Dylan!
If you all haven’t heard, Jon just made it known that one of his cats, Dylan, has a bladdar the size of a grapefruit. Vet bills are extremely high so Jon, Cassie, and Dylan need all of your support through this. If you are able to financially help please go to his store and pick something up at jonwalkermusic.com. If not, then please spread the word through here, twitter, facebook, anything to help out.

I just got back from a summer tour with Mark Rose & Lucas Carpenter. We had a great time, thanks to all of those who came and sorry for those who missed it. I just announced a few more shows with Mark including a FREE NYC show, DC and PA. More info at http://www.jonwalkermusic.com!
After these shows I will be working on finishing my new album, I am so excited to show you what I’ve been working on. Maybe it will be out sooner than later? More on that soon including a new single with a video and a preorder featuring a contribution option which will get you a credit in the liner notes of said new album!
Visit my website (mentioned above) for all your JW needs, please spread the word about my work, my site and this mailing list. Without a label, an agent or publicisit, you’re my only hope! Let’s build this together.

To the streetteamers:
We know that we’ve been absent for awhile and we made a post about it a little while back but we just wanted to clear some stuff up. One, we’re not Jon (sorry, guys). Yes, we know him and get news from him, but we’re not actually him.
As for no new updates, well…we haven’t had any. The only thing we had was the last end of the Beast Friends tour and the dates were posted. We don’t know any new tour dates because Jon doesn’t know, but of course once we get any news it’ll be right here.
Also, a street team is meant to be a group project. Yes, we give you guys news and updates but a team is mainly there to support the artist and get his/her music out there. That being said, we have only gotten one submission and that was for the contest. Of course we would love to see pictures of the work everybody has done to support him (cause we’ve all done it, right?) but if there isn’t any news in the first place then there isn’t much to post. That’s where all of you come in.
You guys can submit anything you want, be it pictures you’ve taken of/with him, videos, fan art, pdf. files of flyers you’ve made, anything. You’ll be credited and it’ll be put on the blog. We’re doing all we can but we need your help, too. So just send us stuff, okay? It’ll keep the blog going and bring us all together as fans. And just know we’ll answer any questions you want to the best of our ability in regards to what to submit, news, etc.
Later on tonight some new pictures will be up and queued from his past two shows at Schubas in Chicago which includes the last show of the tour so hopefully you guys will enjoy. And just know we’ll answer any questions you want to the best of our ability in regards to what to submit, news, etc.
It’s finally time for our very first contest!!!
We have been mentioning a lot how we would be doing a contest and it’s finally time! You have a chance to win a Beast Friends Forever Poster, signed by the man himself as well as his beast friends Mark Rose and Lucas Carpenter!
As you know, a street team is put together to help get the word out about an artist, in other words, promotion. So, we thought, what better for a first contest than to find the most creative way to promote Jon? With this being said, here’s what you do!
- Reblog this post so we can get as many people to see it and get involved!
- Come up with the most creative idea that you can to get Jon’s name out there!
- Go out and do it! (Make sure to put Jon’s website/twitter or anything to promote him in)
- Send us pictures of your work in action!
The reason we’re asking for pictures is to not only to see your ideas come to life, but to actually get some street team work done. So, don’t only consider this our first contest, but also our first mission for all you street teamers!
Also, in the end we will make up a page of all of your submissions so we can keep it as a reference page for ideas.
Now for the “rules”…
- Please keep your ideas legal, we know Jon didn’t really get arrested and we don’t want you to either…
- You don’t have to follow us, but why wouldn’t you if you love Jon?
- You can submit as many ideas as you want as long as they’re creative! (They will be judged as different entries)
Make sure if you are promoting in a public place, you have permission to do so if needed!
IF YOU ALREADY HAVE A POSTER: Don’t worry! You can still participate! If you already happen to have a poster from the tour, we will work out another prize for you and we’ll figure it out!
Contest ends August 20th! How many submissions we get will depend on how long we take to post the winner.
