Heralded as the “next Chris Botti,” Jonathan Dely leads his All-Star Band across the United States from New York City’s Lincoln Center to SFJAZZ in San Francisco to The NAMM Show in Los Angeles.

After declining a full-time, six-figure investment banking position on Wall Street to become a solo trumpet artist, Dely earned finalist honors in the National Trumpet Competition, the International Trumpet Guild Jazz Competition, and the Yamaha Young Performing Artist Competition, and has in short time become a rising star jazz artist.

In 2023, Dely’s journey from Wall Street to the stage caught the eye of Bob Giraldi, legendary filmmaker and director of Michael Jackson’s “Beat It”, who cast Jonathan to star in his newest short film Goodbye Jonathan’s Soul, the story of a young musician on the precipice of accepting a lucrative Wall-Street job who wrestles with leaving his jazz band behind forever. In addition to starring in the film, Dely composed and performed the film’s music at Giraldi’s request.

Dely graduated with honors from Williams College before earning his Master’s on scholarship at Manhattan School of Music. He is currently preparing for the recording of his debut album.
