From the Sirens web site:

Jon's musical journey started in Bellingham, WA, where he formed legendary power pop band The Posies. Their first record "Failure" was recorded and mixed by a teenage Jon in his father's home studio. Two years later The Posies signed a deal with DGC/Geffen and made four records for them, including the landmark "Frosting on the Beater," which includes Jon's classic singles "Dream all Day" and "Flavor of the Month" as well as his dark and epic "Coming Right Along," which was featured on "The Basketball Diaries" soundtrack. The Posies are still together and to date have released six studio albums, an e.p., two live albums, a 4-CD box set, and a "Best Of" collection. They're now signed to Ryko, who released their most-recent CD "Every Kind of Light". The Posies' success also led to Jon becoming part of the reformed Big Star with original members Alex Chilton and Jody Stephens. In addition, Jon is an accomplished producer who has worked with artists diverse as William Shatner and Ben Folds. Solvents are an indie rock group from the Olympic Peninsula.They have been playing continuously in local and national venues since 2001 and have toured multiple times in Europe. Solvents' influences range from Gram Parsons, to Husker Du, from Nirvana, to The Beatles from Big Star to The Replacements and everything in between.
