Jon Guelas is a half Filipino, half British singer/songwriter born and raised in Cambridge, England. Being a football fanatic throughout school, he was hesitant to show his love for music but at 18, he was scouted for the X Factor. He smashed his audition getting 4 yeses from all judges, with Robbie Williams describing him as “obviously incredibly talented.” His stint in The X Factor 2018 kick-started his career in music. While on the show, he stayed in a boyband called “United Vibe” for a couple of years where he released 4 singles he co-wrote with 2 other band members. During his time with “United Vibe,” he did multiple headline tours around England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales. He has also ventured as far as doing mall shows in the Philippines and media guestings in ASAP Natin To, Wish Bus, and Monster RX 93.1.
In 2019, Jon was able to perform in Hyde Park alongside Robbie Williams in front of an audience of 60,000 people. This is what ignited the spark in him that made him realize he wanted to do this for the rest of his life.
Early 2021, Jon released his first 2 singles as a solo artist “Wonderland” and “Out of Love.” With the desire to expand his reach and the goal to get his songs to the rest of the world, Jon Guelas signed with Tarsier Records, a music label based in the Philippines whose goal is to bring Philippine music to the world stage.
