Stacked at 10 tracks teeming with unbridled jubilance and heart-bursting bliss, Canadian alt-folk and dance-pop artist Jont says Thank You For The Medicine with his new album release — available now!

Electronic beats — plus a choir, string quartet, sitar and harmonium for good measure — all hold and share space on the Halifax, Nova Scotia-based singer/songwriter’s 11th and most recent sonic offering. “There is so much joy in these tunes…” Jont muses about the release as a whole. “They are the antidote to the tough side of what we’re going through right now.”

One such song is “Surrounded By Love,” complete with a newly released video reminding audiences about the most important things in life while encouraging them to “sing along,” Jont says, and “have a dance, wherever you are.

JONT's Releases Exuberant New Single, "Thank You For My Happiness"

Fri May 15, 2020

Overflowing with unbridled joy and cheerfully unexpected moments, Canadian alt-folk and dance-pop artist Jont delivers a candid message with the release of his new single, “Thank You For My Happiness” — available now!

Electronic beats — plus a choir, string quartet, sitar and harmonium for good measure — all hold and share space on the Halifax, Nova Scotia-based singer/songwriter’s most recent sonic offering. The track follows this spring’s latest single, “I Think It Could Be Possible” and accompanying video that included sing-along submissions from around the world.

That said: Despite “Thank You For My Happiness” being one of the catchiest, most infectious and jubilant tunes Jont credits to his repertoire, its genesis stems from feeling decidedly the opposite. “It’s inspired by opening my heart to my lover about something I thought they would reject me for,” he shares. “Instead, I found acceptance and empathy.

Pop Artist Jont Issues Positive Challenge around New Single “I Think It Could Be Possible”

Fri Mar 27, 2020

Halifax-based folk and dance-pop artist Jont is encouraging that “all of us together can change the way the world works.”

And so goes the call to action in his new single, “I Think It Could Be Possible” — and resulting cover song invitation. 

“So many people seem to think things are so bad right now and are giving up hope that we can have any positive impact on our world,” he says. “I say, don’t get swept away by disempowering goals of changing the collective chaos caused by humanity. 

“Instead,” he continues, “affect positive change on the world around you right now by changing how you relate to the world… By addressing the inequality you see every day around you… By healing the wounded parts of you that stop you from being as loving and kind as happy as you would like to be… 

“If everyone did that, imagine what our world would be like.”
