He composed lots of songs in 2004, and the band that would become The Dada Weatherman is formed under the moniker Lost-Minded.

In 2005, things are rushing out when he meets Clement for the band The Wedding Soundtrack. They will share a stage in Paris, and Clement’s label Another Record decide to make Lost-Minded appear on its compilation Sweets for the Wild under Creative Commons.

Thanks to this label, Jonathan gets his first radio spins with a constant support.
Fan of his music, Florent Marchet gives him the opportunity of execeptionnal concert in paris as a supporting band in front of 300 seats. On this night of Mars 2007, Jonathan sings alone songs from his first album Hold Your Flower released in 2006.
