Jon d'Agostino is a New York born songwriter who has been interested in country music for almost twenty years. These are the words of a 40-something father of three who is still happily married to the girl he dated back in high school. The songs are sometimes like pages of his diary, the thoughts inside his mind, the passion in his heart and the life-lessons he is trying to pass on to anyone willing to pay attention. 'there are stories on this CD i could not have written twenty years ago because i needed to live through the birth of my children, the passing of those i loved and the journey through life that has taken me to this place, ' he explains. 'i don't write songs for the money. I write because i love to do it. Hopefully, others will listen to my songs and take something from them. Effecting lives, changing lives, and influencing people is what i'm all about, ' he adds. Jon d'Agostino was born in 1964 and is consider the baby of the baby-boomers (1946-1964), the last of a generation who played stickball, grew up in a school yard and learned as much from the streets as from the classroom.
