Mighty Meaty is the brainchild of singer/guitarist Jonathan Held. Born in Hartford, Connecticut, Jonathan was a child prodigy on both piano and violin, before ditching them both when he discovered guitar players get more girls than pianists, and certainly more than violinists. He attended Berkley College of Music in Boston, dropping out after one semester to try his luck pursuing a record deal in New York. In the spring of 2005, he completed home demos of his original pop music, and placed an ad on Craigslist. The resulting master recording featured Keith Kiyuma on drums, and Ben Downlo on bass, and is a timeless piece of classic pop made in a sincere and straightforward way.
