A passionate music fan who stepped into the Nashville scene in 2004, Jon believes in bringing substance back to commercial country radio. “Our writers are encouraged NOT to write hits, but to take chances and write outside the box, left of center, tell interesting stories, but try to make it appeal to the masses. It’s a challenge for sure but we’re not looking for cookie cutter songs about clichés we’re hearing 24/7 these days.” Demolition’s team of writers is diverse, experienced, hardworking and determined to write the hits of tomorrow.  Similarly, their team of song pluggers and consultants have their feet on the street, getting the Demolition songs to the ears of the country music decision makers and helping Demolition to build a brand and reputation to last for a long time. Yes, Demolition is a young publishing company but in just over two years, it has already secured almost 100 cuts!!!
