Lineup and Details for Jont on Tue 3rd July 2012
Jont is a singer-songwriter newly arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia from the United Kingdom. His music has been featured on various US shows including "Grey's Anatomy" and the hit film "Wedding Crashers" and he has also built a significant global community through the success of his traveling house concert series "Unlit", the webisodes of which in 2008 became a "viral internet phenomenon" (The Times).
A born wanderer, after recording and releasing several albums in the UK and the US, Jont set off at the end of 2010 on a spiritual odyssey to be a "troubadour" for real - to travel with no plan, and to just let his songs organically lead him round the world.
Along his troubadour trail he has often been putting on his unique travelling house-concert "UNLIT", which he puts on in the homes of people he meets along the way, and which features him and other local artists performing in the intimacy of someone's home.
The 2008 to 2010 saw three new albums from Jont (Supernatural / Set It Free / Whole Again which he has put out on his own label, gaining 4-star reviews in magazines such as UNCUT and Q, and winning high-profile fans such as Dermot O'Leary, legendary DJ Johnnie Walker who claims "Jont is making the world a better place" and Radio One's Zane Lowe.
However, what is most exciting Jont at the moment is the new album he is working on at the moment. Working title is "LUCKY LEAF FALLS". And it looks set to be a stripped back affair, based around live takes of songs, sung and played at the same time, played on a classical guitar at his friend Adam Fuest's Welsh hillside studio this spring 2012. Oh, that and of course, getting to Halifax to be near his daughter and making a proper base for himself for the first time in ten years....
The Troubadour adventure enters its second more grounded phase and no-one could be more excited than Jont himself.....
