September 8, 2021 Show

Jonathan speaks about his military career (s). And of course, several cut to honor his fellow veterans.

Recently Independent Artist Buzz posted a review of "In A Soldier's Stance" : https://independentartistbuzz.com/post/655918497580433408/jon-steele-in-a-soldiers-stance

They've also reached out with some questions for Jonathan:

1. You originally began your musical journey rather early; what made you decide to join the military before pursuing a music career?

2. As Independence Day just passed, what does independence mean to you, being a veteran?

3. What do you hope listeners will gather from and feel when listening to “In A Soldier’s Stance”? 

4. Was there any difficulty with writing “In A Soldier’s Stance,” or any other of your songs when having to write and relive those experiences from the military?

5. If you could give any advice to those entering or exiting the military, what would it be?
 

Here are Jon's responses:

1. I decided to join the military 3 times. the first time i was pressured by recruiters. The second time i don't remember joining. The third time i really wanted to go back in the military myself. So, i wanted to do everything at one time. i just didn't pursue music as much as i am now. I also didn't have as money funds before i joined the military to pay for my music career.

2. Independence as a veteran means using the military for the right reasons. When war and peace time service are served for the right and justified reasons. That's any country's military.

3. I hope listeners will gather enjoyment, fun, and seriousness from listening to In A Soldiers Stance. I hope they will understand that serving in the military sometimes has lifetime consequences.

4. There was no difficulty in Writing In A Soldiers Stance or any other military song i wrote. All my thoughts and beliefs were fresh in my mind.

5. For those joining the military always read what you are signing in a military contract. You can expect to have no rights. Get in military shape before going to basic training, this includes marching. Learn the history and customs of the military. Also, know there is so much unknown about the military. when leaving the military try to get all the benefits entitled to you by going to a county vet rep. Also, get connected with the department of veteran affairs.
