A doctor by day and rockstar by night – front-man and physician, Dr. Jarrett Lobley fuses the pop, rock, and alternative genres with his band The Jarrett Lobley Project to create a tangible link of humanity and honesty to their audiences.

We’re excited to have The Jarrett Lobley Project as one of our esteemed guests of the Winnipeg March for Mental Health on May 6th, 2017! Learn more about The Jarrett Lobley Project and their connection to the mental health community. - Inspire Community Outreach


If you're wondering why the local music scene is quiet this week in Winnipeg, Toronto has borrowed a ton of our talent for Canadian Music Week.

Basic Nature, Micah Visser, Royal Canoe and Mise en Scene are among more than two dozen Manitoba-based performers playing CMW shows between now and Sunday.

"We always have a pretty good representation at Canadian Music Week, but this year there's a lot," said Sean McManus, Manitoba Music's executive director. "There are 15 acts going, which is definitely more than we've had certainly in the last while."

The festival is spread across 60 Toronto venues that'll house shows from more than 1,000 performers, including headliners Tegan and Sara, Eagles of Death Metal (who just stopped in Winnipeg this past weekend) and Wintersleep.

"It's a pretty big deal. In terms of being in Toronto and playing in Toronto and playing for industry … that's where a lot of the industry is based. You have to have those connections," said McManus.

Representing Manitoba is Attica Riots, Adam Hanney & Co., Andrew Briol, Basic Nature, FINN, Living Proof, Matt Epp, Micah Visser, Mise en Scene, Moon Tan, Petric, The Jarrett Lobley Project, The Middle Coast, Royal Canoe and The Proud Sons.

"Really, it's across the spectrum of genre, which is great, and [it's across the spectrum] sort of in experience too," said McManus. "You've got bands like Royal Canoe that are well-known and have a team in place, and they're going to go and play a big show as part of a ramp up for a release, and then some other bands that are going out for the first time." - CBC

It's a sunny Monday morning, which means Dr. Jarrett Lobley is able to combine his business with pleasure, making house calls to Winnipeg's inner city on his motorcycle.

"I get a chance to ride my bike and it works as a connection with these patients," said Lobley, who bought his 1999 Ducati 900 Monster in 2008 when he completed his clerkship in Brooklyn.

"If I showed up in an Audi with a tie and a blazer, some patients won't open up to me as much as they do if I show up on a motorcycle with jeans and a plaid shirt. They feel that they can talk to me and relate more."

Lobley, 36, spends his time between caring for patients in some of Winnipeg's marginalized neighbourhoods and a nursing station in Cross Lake. In many cases, Lobley finds himself helping people he can relate to, having been through his own rough times.

Such was the case in 2007 and '08 when he did his clerkship at a hospital in New York City.

"I had no money," he said. "I lived on the border between the Bloods and Crips because that was the only part of town I could afford."

Lobley grew up in Quebec and took a bumpy but sometimes colourful road to a medical profession.

"I ended up doing what I wanted to do, even though it was not a straight path," he said.

After graduating high school in Montreal in 1996, where his hobbies were sailing and soccer, he had three friends die tragically in as many years. For the next few years, he did everything from charity work in Zimbabwe to working as an actor and a white water rafting guide before he decided on a medical career.

He obtained prerequisites and earned a degree at McGill University in microbiology, before attending med school in Grenada. There he volunteered with at-risk youth and started a charity called Finding Smiles at Belair Orphanage. He came to Winnipeg in 2009 to take his residency at the University of Manitoba before graduating two years later.

He worked two years in Churchill, which inspired him to train with the late Dr. Lindy Lee, an addictions specialist at an inner-city methadone clinic. Lee, who was his mentor, convinced him to work at the Addictions Foundation of Manitoba and he also spent a year at the chemical withdrawal unit of Health Sciences Centre.

Both roles served him well for his current position at Mobile MDs, a house call service that's free of charge to patients with a valid provincial health card.

"This is why I became a doctor -- to help people who are having trouble helping themselves," Lobley said.

When he's not helping his patients while on the job, Lobley is raising funds for them with his other passion -- moonlighting as a musician. As lead singer of the band The Jarrett Lobley Project, any money he earns from album sales he donates to two charities -- the Broadway Neighbourhood Centre and the Art for Healing Foundation.

It takes him back to the days of his residency, when he would sing and play his ukelele for patients.

"If I have rough day, instead of grabbing a couple drinks, I'll grab my guitar and sing about either the joy of the day or the hurt of the day," he said.

The Jarrett Lobley Project will be one of two bands that open for Loverboy at the Victoria Beach Summer Winds Music Festival on July 18. -

DR. JARRETT LOBLEY

I tracked down Dr. Jarrett Lobley in May, which was easier said than done.

When he isn’t making house calls to Winnipeg’s inner city on his motorcycle or caring for patients during stints at a nursing station in Cross Lake, he’s raising funds for charities moonlighting as a musician.

The lead singer of the Jarrett Lobley Project donates any money from album sales to either the Broadway Neighbourhood Centre or the Art for Healing Foundation.

NOT EVERYDAY SOMEONE COMES ALONG WHO CARES …IT’S ALSO RARE WHEN THAT PERSON IS IN A POSITION TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT.

WHEN THAT PERSON CONTINUES TO DO MORE AND MORE FOR HUMANITY – THAT’S WHEN THE WORD ‘ MARTYR ‘ COMES INTO PLAY.

IS DR. JARRETT LOBLEY A MARTYR?

HE IS WELL ON HIS WAY …

PLEASE LISTEN BELOW AS JARRETT EXPLAINS HIS ROLE AS A PHYSICIAN, A HUMANITARIAN AND A MUSICIAN WITHIN THE JARRETT LOBLEY PROJECT. A GROUP CONSISTING OF TWO JUNO AWARD WINNERS …

“The Jarrett Lobley Project is ‘True Grit’. Lyrically and vocally reminiscent of Tom Waits and The Doors. What a passionate delivery, a truly rockin' live act.” - Marti Sarbit/ IMAGINARY CITIES

“The Jarrett Lobley Project’s recordings Rock, plain and simple. When I witnessed the band live, I truly experienced the full power and potential of this band. With his “tell it like it is” lyrics and driving rhythm section, The Jarrett Lobley Project is a musical force to be reckoned with." - Dave Swiecicki - JET SET SATELLITE - Winnipeg Football Club


Naramata resident Jarrett Lobley will be performing with his band The Jarrett Lobley Project on Saturday January 20th at Mile Zero Wine bar in Penticton at 8 PM.

Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Eventbrite.

Jarret Lobley Trio is an acoustic act from Penticton/Kelowna. Their infectious live energy makes a great afternoon/evening out. A mix of current cover songs we all love to sing a long to, combined with a a few driving original tracks, lets the band feel and respond to the audience. The band were the last act to play at last August's Naramata Faire. - My Naramata

Bio

Signs to the City (formerly known as Jarrett Lobley Project) is riding a vibrant momentum for their upcoming 2018 album release and European and North American tours. The band has performed alongside Loverboy, The Winnipeg Blue Bombers, at Canadian Music Week, the Fringe Festival, and Pride Winnipeg.

Front-man and family physician, Jarrett Lobley, provides a tangible link of humanity and honesty to the audience with equal measures of restraint and power. Making daily house calls to his inner city patients on his motorcycle, Lobley transitions into the evening creating sounds born out of the simplistic beauty hidden amidst the day.

Known for their community involvement, musical collaboration and philanthropic nature, STTC donates much of their proceeds to grassroots, community and arts organizations.
