Jonas Snitt, grew up in Paris and moved to Sweden in year 2000 and got his first guitar at the age of 13. He later on studied classical guitar in a music highschool in Stockholm called Lilla Akademien. After the graduation he decided to play electric guitar with other musicians. The creative process started in the autumn of 2007 in a music school in the north of Sweden called Sjöviksfolkhögskola, where Jonas wrote his first songs. He formed a band where they played some of his songs.
Jonas idea was to create something new, combining electric and acoustic music together and write music that is inspired of the 60s and 70s with his own touch.
The band was after a while named The Jones Experience with Robert Drewstad on the drums, Eric Ahlqvist on the bass and Tor Sandell on the piano. They played at some music competitions and made a lot of concerts in Sjövik and Stockholm. After two years at Sjöviksfolkhögskola he moved back to Stockholm. A new band was formed and the members where Jonas brother Niclas Snitt at the piano, Jenny Myr on backing vocals, Alex Brannäs on the bass and Claes Malmberg on drums. Later on Fredrik Wide joined the band after Niclas moved to dalarna, north of Sweden.
Jonas Snitt also participated in The Voice Sweden 2012.
