About My Brother, Jon & His Crazy Dream

With another amazing year on the road under our belt, we find ourselves back on the West Coast, settling in for Christmas with our families.

This time of year is always a natural time for reflection and remembering everything I have to be thankful for. Towards the top of a very long list… is my brother. I’m thankful for my brother, and that we get to share this journey through life together — the good, the bad, and the ugly (we ARE brothers, afterall).


One of the questions we probably get the most is: “What’s it like to be in a band with your brother? What’s he really like?”

A longer answer is deserved, but for starters, how about: wise, intense, brilliant, hilarious, … and absolutely out of his mind!

For example, a while back, Jon had a crazy dream of playing 25 shows in 24 hours — I know, right?!? But I knew that if anyone could pull off this seemingly impossible task, it would be my brother. And those of us who were there to experience that dream felt privileged, knowing we were witnessing something truly special, and truly Jon.

In the Spring of 2018 (while I’m at home surfing, hehe) Jon and Friends will bring the story of 25 in 24 to you with a special night of music and a movie, and it will be rad, I promise.

    Nothing says Merry Christmas like grabbing your tickets to see Jon Foreman. I’m crazy about college hoops, but in 2018, “March Madness” has a new meaning!

    So happy to see this I’m so full of joy this band has kept me fed and solid in a strange strange difficult yet miraculous world . Thankful the creator put this puzzle piece to help many others fit into a sometimes tricky kingdom , Jon is deep and yet simple and always centered around love yet asks the proper questions I feel – few in music have edified me beyond just emotions , thankful for modern prophets who exalt an ever evolving reformation yet holding to the roots . This tour should be great his solo work is just amazing stuff …
