He also comes from a creative line, including his father, Reuben Klamer, who is the creator of the famous board game "The Game of Life".

Starting from the age of only six years, while his mom, Shary Klamer, spent nights at law school, Asian culture became a major part of Jonny’s life because it was then that Jonny began studying martial arts, which he has continued to the present. But, Jonny’s love for the Asian culture did not stop with the martial arts. Eastern philosophies have always been a passion of Jonny’s, as well as an academic focus. Studying at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), he was unable to fully immerse himself within these teachings, so in 1997 he applied for and was admitted into a highly exclusive program to study in Beijing at Peking University. Jonny would then spend the next two years studying Chinese language and culture in Bejing and traveling extensively throughout China and Southeast Asia.

From this experience, he not only improved his Chinese speaking, reading, and writing skills to relative fluency, but he also gained a love for Asia and its people that most Westerners never get a chance to understand. After graduating with honors from UCLA, inspiration struck Jonny in 2001 after he entered and won a Chinese singing competition in Los Angeles. It was then that he was discovered by a Taiwanese TV network, ETTV. An executive there began sending Jonny out to perform at events around California.

He also toured (as the only non-Chinese singer) through the Mandarin singing competition circuits in the US and placed first in several events. The step that finally pushed him into the International Mandarin Pop spotlight was when he made it to the International finals of the CCTV International Singing Competition ...this was the boost he needed to make this a true career. Jonny is currently living in between Hong Kong and Shanghai and Los Angeles pursuing a completely unprecedented approach to the world music scene. He not only sings in Mandarin (and English), but he writes his own lyrics (in Chinese) and co-produces his music (with well-known US Music Producer Myke Aaron).

Jonny says that his thought process for writing his songs begins and ends thinking only in Chinese (not by translating). His style is a mix of R&B, electronica, and western pop, blended with a Mandarin pop feel. His favorite songs to write are simple and unadorned love ballads, but don’t count out his love for performing energetic pop and hip-hop rhythms. In 2004 Jonny appeared as himself in the Disney blockbuster movie "Princess Diaries 2: A Royal Engagement" and he received an RIAA Certified Gold Record in the USA for his song on the soundtrack. In October of 2004 Jonny signed with See Music in Hong Kong, China and has since released 3 chart topping Mandarin songs "On the Edge," "The Apology,"and "Crossroads"(all written and produced by Jonny), and he has appeared in several television and radio shows throughout southern China.

Jonny was also voted as "Hot New Sound" at the 2005 Metro Music Awards in Hong Kong, which has never before been achieved by a non-Chinese. Jonny Blu is the first ever Caucasian artist to have successfully entered the Chinese music market in the history of the music business. Jonny is currently touring the US to promote both his Chinese album AND his NEW English album. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ EXTENDED BIOGRAPHY 延長傳記: CHINESE 中文 “會普通話的鬼佬,正是藍強給很多人的第一印象。驚訝、好奇他都見慣了。。。” 熱愛中國文化的老外很多。愛到學功夫、愛到跑來中國的都不少。但跑來香港當個流行樂音歌手,還要是唱中文歌的,卻絕無僅有。 他,可能是首個天然金髮的中國歌手。他叫藍強,洋名──應該是原名才對──Jonny Blu。 來自美國的樂壇新人藍強( Jonny Blu )以創作歌手身份勇闖本地樂壇,Jonny不但能編寫中文曲詞,從小醉心亞洲文化及武術的他,更精通氣功 、空手道及少林功夫,能歌善武的他決心打入樂壇!美國土生土長的樂壇新人藍強,自小對音樂與武術充滿濃厚興趣。他六歲開始學習空手道,大學時代,開始學習少林功夫同曾於北京學習中文,短短三個月便對中國文化產生濃厚興趣,因而操得一口流利普通話。之後 , Jonny更在北京大學修讀中國歷史與文學一年。 幸好,他所遇到的多數平民,對於這個會說普通話的老外,還是好奇與友善多於排擠。在西安,他見識到中國共產黨發源地;在洛陽,他與漁民閒談。這是他所愛的中國。 音樂結合中西 藍強今年廿六歲,自小對中國發生興趣。住在洛杉磯比華利山,父親是紙板遊戲「生命之旅」(LIFE)的發明者。他從歷史課上學到各大古文明國事跡:以色列,埃及,羅馬,中國,等。也許也是洛杉磯本身的多元化,他自小就認識到世界上有很多不同人種,各自地生活著。 音樂作為國際語言,也許正觸動了他向外闖的決心。「中國跟美國一樣重要。中國人從小就已學英文,對西方有一定了解,但西方則不然,於是就構成一種西方的偏見。我的志願是將西方與東方的文化放在一起,互相認識。」 在2004年參與美國電影的演出,在迪士尼的「公主日記」第二集中,首次把自己歌曲放進電影內,而且在電影中的更演繹了他國語作品,令不少人士為之側目。而且在美國他最近收到了一張RIAA證明金色唱片(RIAA Certified Gold Record)。 沒時代地域界線 以為他來中國不過是貪新鮮,誰知他是全心投入。他愛聽華文流行曲,王菲、孫燕姿、陶吉吉都琅琅上口。尤其是林夕的填詞令他想起中國詩詞。有一年中國新年,他在洛杉磯唐人街參加一個小型卡拉OK比賽,唱了任賢齊的《心太軟》,五百人前拿了冠軍,他開始對自己有信心。「我開始覺得,自己還可以呀。」連「還可以」這個模稜兩可的口語字眼都運用自如,他的中文水平果然蠻不錯。他熱愛的流行音樂,恰好是強而有力的文化載體。「從小我就接觸各國音樂,最喜歡的則是HipHop和Rock n Roll, 不過, 在另一方面也熱愛喜歡聽唱爵士Jazz音樂, 都可以!」恰好近年世界樂壇大熱此曲種,華語世界亦不例外,正給了他一條入行之路。 首作《刀鋒》,自己作曲填詞主唱,來自與加拿大女友分手的經驗,在《勁歌金曲》上演唱,也得到譚詠麟讚許。 對此,藍強的看法要開放得多。「我壓根兒就不相信甚麼Boundary(界線),那只是政治上的分割。音樂、文化上是不存在界線的。」他的個人簡介上說,他最愛的歌手是70年代的Sting,BillyJoel。嘩,好老套!「我就是喜歡他們沒時代界線。」或者,這也代表沒有地域限制? 問Jonny有沒有關於音樂娛樂的偶像?他即說:「其實,我沒有偶像, 只有欣賞的。 我很喜歡成龍與李小龍,記得去年我在經理人介紹下認了 成龍,我還跟他握手。我亦喜歡王菲的歌,她的歌很有意思,張學友則有一種大丈夫的感覺,而王力宏和陶吉吉亦很出色 。。。我唯一的偶像就是我外公!」 老外唱國語歌不稀奇「西方人唱國語歌,我自己其實覺得沒甚麼奇怪。」當旁人因其背景而另眼相看,或稱讚,或嘲笑,他最想聽眾注意他的音樂,「我不要做Gimmick(綽頭),Gimmick不能持久。」「歷史上,人總得冒點險才能成功。我沒有為自己設下Time Limit(時限),因為那代表你不相信自己。現在樂壇上太多普通音樂了,我希望能作出多點改變。」他藍色的眼睛望著我,好像在說,別當我兒嬉玩玩搞搞笑,我是認真的。 Read more on Last.fm.
