Born in Fairbanks, Alaska, Jon Button was inspired by his 4 older, musician siblings to start playing at a young age. Piano at age 4 laid the groundwork to move to string bass and bass guitar at 7. By 14 he was playing in local jazz and blues bands, symphonies and pit orchestras. In high school Jon was honored with making the All National Orchestra, All National Jazz Band, and winning a scholarship to attend Berklee College of Music’s summer program for high school students.
