Jon Chong’s “State Of My Mind”

One could never imagine 29-year old Jon Chong, who holds an Engineering PhD from the NUS and SMA, as the latest aspiring singer songwriter to hit the scene, releasing his debut album titled “State of My Mind’.

Having written songs for over a decade to capture and express his thoughts and experiences, Jon views music as a natural extension of who he is. In his songs, he delves honestly into the themes of life and love and why, and stirs us to consider our unique place in the world.

The Engineer Who Became A Musician

Singer-songwriter Jonathan Chong’s resume gives no hint of his artistic side. Trained up to PhD level in robot management, and currently working as a mechanical engineer, Chong, 29, launched his debut album, State Of My Mind on 19 September with a showcase at Bar None, St James Power Station.

The cosy gathering of around 50 fit comfortably into the chic venue. Most were close friends who turned up to show their support for the singer. Chong rose to the occasion and belted out seven songs from his album (which features 10 of his original compositions).
