Staff pick: Jon Chinn at The Tree Bar

From the August 16, 2012 edition

Jon Chinn spent the better part of two decades making Columbus sound good. His band Pretty Mighty Mighty was one of Ohio’s best in the early ’90s, and his solo work as Jon Chinn & 1803 wasn’t too shabby either. Chinn’s Workbook Studio was among the city’s best places to record an album.

So when he and his wife left for New York two years ago, he left a Chinn-shaped hole in the music scene. Cause for celebration: He’s releasing a new collection of gleaming pop-rock tunes, “The Tiniest Light,” and coming back to perform at The Tree Bar this Friday.
