    Jonathan Allen Guerra (stage name JAGUERRA) was born in Whittier, CA. Shortly thereafter, he moved to Houston, TX, with his parents, not recalling ever being asked to weigh in on the decision. At twelve years old, his family moved to Wheaton, IL, where he spent his developmental years learning to play guitar, wreaking havoc on small-town sheriffs, and obsessing over Radiohead, Rufus Wainwright, and Sigur Ros.  

     Guerra is a multi-instrumentalist singer/songwriter currently living in Chicago, IL with his wife and soul/ensemble-mate Valerie Anne. They partnered with the producer Chuck Bein (founder and CEO of the commercial music house SEE Music) and other friends to record his debut LP hue.   

     Hue is reminiscent of early Aimee Mann, Nick Drake and hints of the softer side of Sigur Ros. The album is littered with delicate flat picking, french horn flourishes and instrumental tracks that feel more like piano etudes fit for a Michel Gondry film. "I guess I was sort of aiming for baroque ambiance, but hopefully, without getting too indulgently obscure," says Guerra. "At the end of the day, I just want to write good songs that make people feel something. The treatment of the production is a combination of my and Chuck's idiosyncratic tastes. Whether I'm on piano or guitar, whether there are horns or there's a verby pad-synth, the linking strand is my voice and the simplicity of the song. At a show, those are the things that stand out because, well, it's just me, Valerie and our instruments. I wanted the record to be an honest representation of the live performance, while still doing due diligence to elucidate the feeling through the production."

     Guerra's explanation of the title Hue is as follows, "Hue refers to a shade, rather than a specific color. The hues of a painting, for instance, have more to do with the mood of the painting than anything else. I want people to feel the mood of these songs more than dissecting the lyrics or appreciating the arrangements or whatever. I think we achieved a pretty consistent mood on the album and hue felt like a good word to capture it."
