Bio

Jon Hines is a Cape Breton singer songwriter, folk blues, and story teller. Growing up in rural Cape Breton, Jon spent a lot of his younger days sculpting a unique style of guitar playing and writing. 

Growing as both a writer and a player, Jon then went on to study music theory and recording engineering in Halifax. Where he recorded his first CD titled, “Gary the Bus Driver”. After finishing the new recording, Jon quickly hit the road on the East Coast. Being fortunate enough to tour the wonderful East Coast of Canada, and playing for the Newfoundland Folk Society. 

Jon has recently after a brief hiatus from writing and touring, picked up his guitar and started writing again. With a seemingly non-stop flow of songs pouring out of him. Jon sat down and recorded his new album “Wild Things Roam” at the end of 2017. While touring and drawing attention to his new collections of work, Jon had the opportunity of touring and opening for international touring artists, “Daniel Champagne” from Australia, and “Jesse Roper” from Victoria BC. 

Wild Things Roam, will be available later this year (2018) with the first single to be released now. The first single “Rainstorm In New Orleans”, was entered into an International Songwriting Competition where it was selected out of 16,000 songs to advance into the semi finals round of the competition.
