Biography

Jont is a singer-songwriter newly arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia from the United Kingdom with a loyal following in the UK and the United States. 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.

His journey took him first to Australia (where he did his debut gig on Thursday Island in The Torres Strait, moving on to sell out Sydney’s 505 club a few months later), to New Zealand, back through America and then to tour (playing small gigs organised by fans who became friends) through Italy, France, the UK and Germany in the summer and autumn of 2011.

Along the way he was introduced to a Taoist meditation technique which started to change the way he approached his life and his music. In December 2011 he headed to California where he did a ten day Vipassana meditation course and at the beginning of January he realised there was one thing that wasn’t totally transparent in his life. So, he wrote an email to an old friend and discovered that he had an 8 year old daughter living in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
