"Jont's songs are the medicine the world needs right now.
Rooted in the experience of love and the healing of trauma, they are deeply personal and yet genuinely universal.”

The music you'll find here is based in the timeless values that are true in all eras and for all people - those of honesty, transparency, love and joy.

The last few years I've been kind of under the radar, living in Halifax, Nova Scotia making two full albums of music of a genre that I call "Medicine Pop". A lot of the tracks have the uplifting sound of a string quartet and a choir sharing space with more modern sounding backing tracks.
Some of the songs were written in the months before this current time but seem weirdly suitable for right now. With the help of an amazing group of friends around the world I am bringing these recordings, the best I've ever made, to completion and beginning to release them and perform live in whatever way suits this evolving time.
The first album (released June 26, 2020) is called Thank You For The Medicine and the first single is I Think It Could Be Possible. Each single has a video and you can watch all of them on the dedicated page HERE.
I'm happy to say it's my job to get these uplifting messages, that have been given to me in the shape of songs, out to you. I love it and I hope you love the songs. Be in touch! Let me know where you're listening from and where I should come and play once we're allowed to get out on the road again...
