An incredibly diverse musical path, the styles of such artists as Bob Dylan, Merle Haggard and Joni Mitchell... the traditional blues of Muddy Waters and Buddy Guy...the old-time country of Jimmy Rodgers… as well as the effervescence of mountain bluegrass.


Jonathan played for the Four Hosts First Nations at Vancouver’s 2010 Winter Olympics and shortly afterwards in June he released his first self-titled album. In addition, Jonathan has had a very active summer of 2010 with solo performances at the Harmony Arts Festival in West Vancouver, The First Peoples Arts Festival in Victoria, opening act performances for The Jardines, Johnny DeMarco and Stonebolt at the Yale Hotel in Vancouver and opening for the Australian Indigenous Band OKA in Ladner where he was invited to join the band for their last set. Jonathan is now living and attending high school in Delta, BC, where he has been actively pursuing a career as a performing artist and is currently composing and performing music for the APTN children's series Nehiyawetan. On October 1 he will be having his CD release concert at the Anza Club in Vancouver hosted by Kirk Douglas of Soundlounge Productions. Jonathan is planning his second CD release for late 2010 and is planning a tour of the Western Canada country and folk festival circuit for the summer of 2011 with the highlight being The Dreaming Festival in Australia.
