About Jon Coen

I live on Long Beach Island, in the great state of New Jersey.… like, year round. Winters can be a little rough, long stretches of frozen desolation. But then there are those surreal days of soft snowfall and empty waves. Summers are crazy hectic. As the Island swells to capacity we all have to put our heads down to make coin, but our friends are all around, the island is green and the water’s blue. Of course, in between those are the blissful days when the garden is exploding and someone drops off fresh striped bass, chasing snowy barrels in the winter or blue claw crabs with my kid in the summer.

Interview with Travis Rice on “The Fourth Phase.”

By |September 25th, 2016|Editorial|

Last week, I got a one-on-one interview with Travis Rice in LA, on the day of the premiere of his latest film "The Fourth Phase." I hesitate to call this a "snowboard" film because it's so much more.

RB Music Academy Interview with Brian Fallon

By |August 14th, 2014|On Air Hosting|

The new Gaslight Anthem album, "Get Hurt" comes out on Tuesday. It reminded me to dig up this conversation I had with frontman Brian Fallon back in 2012 at the Press Room in Asbury Park. Watch the entire Red Bull Music Academy interview with Brian Fallon. There were times it felt like a runaway train, but man did he have some great points. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QQnmXUHpaQ
