    A musical prodigy, Jonathan Salas could play piano, drums, and guitar by the ripe old age of 8 and was writing songs at the early age of 12. At 16, Jonathan Salas Band won third place in a national band competition sponsored by Gospel Music Association’s Seminar in the Rockies. He went back the next year and the group was the most awarded group at GMA Music in the Rockies, Estes Park CO.
