Biography

Jon Auer is most well known for being one half of The Posies creative team, along with Ken Stringfellow. Auer’s solo recordings demonstrate his considerable influence to the success of The Posies. In particular, SONGS FROM THE YEAR OF OUR DEMISE achieves new levels of melody and lyrical brilliance. The song “Bottom of the Bottle” will resonate with anyone who has dated someone who drinks a “little too much,” and “Six Feet Under” may be one of the most depressing (yet cathartic) break-up songs ever written. SONGS FROM THE YEAR OF OUR DEMISE, BLOOD ON THE TRACKS, and SEA CHANGE are the holy trinity of break-up albums.

    This man should release more solo material. Songs from the Year of Our Demise is downright beautiful.

    If you love Ken Stringfellow (which I also do), then leave him props on his page! There is only room for Jon Auer love over here. Thank you. You've been a musical inspiration since I was a teen in Everett, WA, man. Keep up the amazing work.

    Jon's solo album is an emotional ride from joy to sadness and back again. The voice of an angel. I love it.

    Jon's solo stuff doesn't affect me as much as Ken's. The new album sounds good, but it's not any where near songs like apology...
