He spent 10 years touring the world as a professional drummer. His writing and playing has been heard on television shows like "Nashville", "Criminal Minds", MTV's "Catfish" and "Gossip Girl". His previous band, Ha Ha Tonka, was featured on an episode of Anthony Bourdain's "No Reservations". He backed his brother (Chance Bone) as the drummer for music featured in the 2016 feature film "The Meddler", starring Susan Sarandon. He's been on 3 Billboard Top 200 albums, (K. Flay // Ha Ha Tonka), and has toured 13+ countries. 

He's played Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, SXSW, Sundance Film Festival and Wakaroosa to name a few, and has shared the stage with the likes of  K. Flay, Lucius, The Violent Femmes, The Roots, The Old 97's, Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin, Langhorne Slim, the Avett Brothers and Murder by Death.

"I try to push myself and those around me to do something different once in a while." Lennon says. "The great thing is, it's put me in some interesting situations that have not only shaped me as a musician, they've shaped me as a person. Only through art are we able to stick our necks out like that. Everything we do is so personal, and it feels like we're trying to fit in such a small box these days for the sake of success, that we're losing the reason behind creating in the first place. We're just recycling because we know it sells. I think we need to shut up and listen once in a while… put our opinions and fears aside and really LISTEN. It's then that we'll actually get better at what we do."

Lennon currently resides in the midwest, producing and mixing records out of Sound and Patterns and Element Recording Studio's in Kansas City, as well as doing freelance drumming and compositional work for film and television through his company Sound and Patterns Music
