On August 23, 2022, Jonn Nicholson officially joined God in Rehab as the keyboardist and backing vocalist.
Jonn has an extensive music career in the Nashville, TN, music community. He has not only worked for such iconic venues as the Exit/In, but he also serves as the frontman for the local Nine Inch Nails cover band, Not Your Nails.
As the founder of E.Y.E. Productions, he puts together and hosts major annual music events like Women to the Front (WTTF) and Industrial Night, which feature upwards of 50 Nashville musicians collaborating in various impromptu “bands” to perform one-off genre-specific or themed songs to help raise money and awareness for charities such as the YWCA of Nashville and MusiCares.
We’re excited to have him on board!
We can’t wait to start playing God in Rehab shows with this new lineup!
