Jonny Glenn is music’s newest pop-rock showman sent straight from the stars. Born from a cosmic fusion of John Lennon’s lyrical genius & astronaut John Glenn’s intrepid bravery for mankind, Jonny Glenn’s mission is to send us Earthlings on a psychedelic journey to reach new horizons with cosmic stage theatrics.
Raised by a single mother in the American South, Jonny Glenn grew up without much money or many opportunities. But music provided Jonny the escape to another world; one where anything seemed possible. Through music, Jonny could imagine himself in all the legends he rocked out to and by carefully studying their theatricality, Jonny managed to embody the same visual flair and high energy of 70’s & 80’s rock performances in his first sets.
After graduating high school, Jonny moved to Massachusetts & attended Boston University, where he began to play live shows and build a local fanbase. He’s headlined many of Boston’s most popular venues, including the House of Blues, the Royale, Brighton Music Hall, The Red Room, The Middle East and now has over 100 shows under his belt across Boston, Charleston, & Los Angeles. Jonny’s recent releases, including Sail Away, All Fall Down, Wasted, and most recently, Woah ft. Ally Hills, have amassed him over 2M streams and over 30,000 monthly listeners.
Jonny’s music combines pop with rock influences, often paying homage to childhood idols Elvis, Freddie Mercury, and Nirvana. The wide range of his voice is well-suited for live performances and his high energy ensures all sets are frenetic and packed with the flamboyant fun that made 70’s glam rock, 80’s hair metal, & 90’s grunge bands so successful. Pouring his all into his passion, Jonny prepares to set sail with his debut album, aptly titled “8” after the cosmic birth of the artist “Jonny Glenn”, born December 8th. His charisma, musical talent and vocal stamina is sure to cement Jonny as one of music’s newest leading men.
This track brings out an exceptionally catchy melody in his vocals, with lyricism that truly hits home. This song was written for mental health awareness month, as the meaning behind the song brings to light the anxiousness that many of us feel trying to please everyone in the world. Don’t be so hard on yourself, and take a listen below!

As a producer bringing some major events to Capital Pride this year, Zach Renovátes admits that he was keen to get Betty Who on the lineup. After having seen several of her live performances already, Renovátes knew the Australian would make a fine marquee addition to the “Kinetic Presents Candyland” event at Echostage June 10.
Fortunately, she was both available and interested.
“Something that I personally saw was that [Betty Who] is one of the most pro-LGBT singer-songwriters I’ve ever ever seen perform live,” Renovátes said, adding that the D.C. audiences at her concerts come largely from within the gay community. “So she absolutely knows that we as queer people make up a huge percentage of her fan base.”
The June 10 event is the main draw of a weekend of collaborations between Kinetic Presents and the Capital Pride Alliance in celebration of D.C. Pride 2023. Other big names who will play at various venues around the District include DJs Abel and Cindel, Dan Slater, as well as Jerac and Paulo Fragoso. It’ll be a pride-filled musical weekend indeed, with Echostage, Sax, Bunker and Bliss Nightclub hosting the pulsing sounds of revelry. And there’s also the big parade on June 10.
