JONO started as a solo project of singer Johan Norrby (hence the moniker
”JoNo”), some 10-15 years ago. A record was made and released in 2006,
involving some of the members of today’s band setting. JONO as a band
started out at that point and has carried on ever since.
Singer and songwriter Johan Norrby has been singing, writing and playing
music in countless bands and projects for years and years – which very
much goes for all of the guys in the band. The guitarist, Stefan
Helleblad, is also a member of Dutch symphonic rockstars Within
Temptation. The drummer Nicka Hellenberg played all the drums on Within
Temptation's album "The Unforgiving" and is involved in several band
settings and recordings. Both keyboard player Johan Carlgren and bass
player Janne Henriksson are frequently hired for both live and studio
