Bass Player, Stickist, Singer.
Composer, Arranger, Producer.
Jon has always been a fan of delicious bass tones and has used both fretted, fretless, upright and the Chapman Stick in his quest for more tonal space and colours. His focus has always been on playing a groove with a focused tone, providing the foundation beneath the whole band.
His style also encompasses ripping 16th note arpeggios, chording and other specialized techniques - letting the bass be "all that it can be" has always been his mission. "Drumming" on the bass is something Jon enjoys a lot and the style can often be described as a mix of Funk and Pop music with Progressive Rock roots.
Fretless bass is also something that he enjoys laying down and uses his customised Music Man StingRay 5 to get the fat Mwhaaaaaa.
During the summer of 2016, Jon Polds solo project, "Synergy", will record and mix their first full length album, consisting of both new songs and more "well known" live material.
