Jonathan is a funny man with a guitar – a true story-teller.
I am a singer-songwriter and storyteller, and I try to infuse everything I create with insight, emotion, and humor. I find it very gratifying to write and perform songs, share anecdotes, and to play various instruments, such as guitar, harmonica and saxophone. By combining poetry and music, I can make some sense of what is going on around me. I love live performances and sharing tunes that resonate with an audience.
I perform songs on many topics including truth vs. illusion, life paths, healing journeys, interaction with nature, and natural and industrial disasters. And yes, I have a few songs about love, romantic and otherwise. Climate change, especially as it is unfolding in the NWT and amongst the circumpolar nations, has caught my attention, and I have written two songs about this unsettling drama. The following is from The Troubadour’s Prophecy.
The sun descends like a fiery brand, and warms the air of a frigid land.
With no more snow on the mountainside, the hunters’ relics no longer hide.
