Biography

Jonathan Jacob Walker (b. September 17, 1985 in Chicago) was the bassist for the Las Vegas based rock band Panic! at the Disco, replacing former bass player Brent Wilson. He was a bass technician for friends The Academy Is…(and is credited in the liner notes for Santi) before joining Panic! At the Disco. He was also a shift manager at Starbucks in Chicago, Illinois. Jon has been in many unsigned, hometown bands before being a guitar tech. Some of the bands that he was in were Farewell Night, and 5o4plan.

Jon grew up in Chicago with his parents and two older brothers. Jon always mentions his brothers in interviews saying that he’s really close to them and that they are “… cooler than me. Like way cooler.”
Jon was in a high school band called Farewell Night with friends: Adrian LaTrace (formerly lead guitarist The Academy Is…), Shawn Ernst, and Matt Kravcar. There is a nine minute long video on youtube.com of this band performing during a 3 day weekend.
While out with The Academy Is…, Panic met Jon backstage. In an interview with Steven Smith of Steven’s Untitled Rock Show, they all admitted that they became instant friends with Jon. Walker joked in saying that the only reason Panic found him was that he put out an ad in the yellow pages. After the whole deal with Wilson, the band contacted Jon saying that they wanted to him to go on tour with them to just fill the void. In July of 2006, Jon became an official member of the band.
Jon started becoming more involved with the band by mainly being the one to update the online journals on their official website. www.panicatthedisco.com
