He has an incredibly diverse approach to songwriting, exploring genres as diverse as hip-hop, alternative rock, punk, and pretty much anything in between.

Today, the music scene seems to be as diverse as ever on the surface. However, it is more and more common to see artists seemingly getting stuck in their comfort zone and their usual patterns of thoughts and actions. This is definitely not the case for Jonathon Karabekian, an artist who is always willing to experiment with new ideas. His most recent studio release, This Robot Can Move, which has a stunning and distinctive combination of world-class production and spot-on lyrics that add more realness to the entire “package.”
Jonathon creates music freely, exploring new ideas without being bound to any constraints or limitations. This Robot Can Move follows in the same path, highlighting his continuous growth as an artist, and human.
