Born in Lansing, MI in 1986, Jon Ramm felt an affinity for the lower register from a young age. First wielding the trombone in school concert and jazz bands in Tacoma, WA, Jon’s love blossomed into a career after studying with Stan Bock at Lewis and Clark College in Portland, OR. Jon grew to understand the importance of versatility and compositional curiosity under the tutelage of the great drummer Alan Jones.
In 2012 Jon threw himself into the chaotic embrace of New Orleans where he immersed himself in the myriad of musical styles born of unique history and creative exploration.
Jon has played, recorded, or worked with Sturgill Simpson, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats, Valerie June, the Dap King horns, PJ Morton, Ana Popovic, Jake Shears, Stanton Moore, Keith Carlock, Aurora Nealand, New Orleans Suspects, Naughty Professor, Tank and the Bangas, David Ferguson, Nicole Johänntgen, Travers Geoffray, and appeared on The Late Show with Steven Colbert, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, Late Night with Seth Meyers, Conan O'Brien, Saturday Night Live, KCRW Morning Set, Artist's Den, and the Grammys.
