Jong SL Releases “Driving Away”

Jong SL is a one man songwriter, composer, producer, and performer who plays with a band.

Having moved to the US at a young age from South Korea, Jong SL lost his identity along the way. Understanding western and eastern culture, he doesn’t feel truly connected to either.

Feeling distant has defined his character and music. It has made him conscious of issues that we face, the issues that aren’t necessarily up-front like feeling helpless, lonely, and out-of-place even with our widespread connectivity with social media and the internet. Everyone wants to hide behind a strong face and no one really wants to talk about it. Jong wants to create a community where we can feel welcome and supportive.

Jong’s new release “Driving Away” is about struggling to face the reality of loss. The song is the first of many that truly shows Jong in a new melancholic light.
