You would have thought Jonathan Roy’s destiny was preordained with success. He watched from a front row seat as his father, Patrick Roy, built one of the greatest legacies in the game of Hockey. A decade later, his father and coach at the time, sat the aspiring goalie down and delivered the harsh news that an NHL career was not in the cards for his young son. But instead of being despondent or heading back to school as his Dad urged - Jonathan was actually relieved & then completely stunned his father with the declaration that music was truly in his blood & the only career path he wanted to follow. The quest lead him to a chance introduction with Canadian music icon Corey Hart in early 2013, who happened to be looking for a new artist on his label Siena Records, partnered with Warner Music Canada & Sire Records in the Unites States. As soon as Hart heard Jonathan’s passionate & authentic vocal delivery he knew he had found the substantive music talent he had always been searching for. Since then, the pair have been virtually inseparable,forging a very deep personal, working relationship by honing in on the musical sound which would ultimately define Jonathan Roy to the world at large.
The North Sound
The North Sound is cold like a Saskatchewan winter. It's humid as a summer day in the streets of Montreal. As unpredictable as the weather in a singular Calgary day. The North Sound is ever-changing with the world around us, encompassing each and every pivotal moment, from road trips as a kid to finding your way as an adult. It's feeling lost but knowing you're loved. The North Sound is an attempt at trying to close the gap reflected in the vast space of the open Canadian landscape. - https://www.facebook.com/thenrthsnd/
Calgary’s Bebo Grove is a four-piece band formed in 2015 by longtime friends and collaborating musicians and songwriters, Jason Selby and Jeff Ragan. With the addition of Jordan Clermont, a local singer-songwriter, on vocals, and Anthony Heywood-Smith, a multi-instrumentalist, Australian Singer-Songwriter, on drums, the four created a sound that combines a unique blend of styles to create a melodic, emotive sound. Their music is heavily influenced by a variety of songwriters, bands, and genres, combining poetic lyrics with an energetic fusion of folk, world music, and alternative rock. Bebo Grove released their first EP, Vacant Places, in March 2016. - https://www.facebook.com/bebogrove/
