Jonny Debt - Infectiously catchy Canadian Folk-Rock “Strange Like Trees”

Coming out of the hot Hamilton music scene in Canada, Jonny Debt delivers his trademarked charismatic performances and catchy alternative folk-rock songs.  The prolific singer songwriter lands on UK shores for a selection of exclusive dates ahead of the release of his captivating debut single “Strange Like Trees”, released Monday 9th May 2016.


Debt bridges the chasms of time by accompanying his classic poetic approach reminiscent of 1960’s psychedelic era of songwriting, with cutting edge visual imagery. In the wondrously musing music video for his debut single “Strange Like Trees”, Jonny exquisitely marries stunning visual arts with captivatingly organic record production. With “Strange Like Trees”, Debt provides insight into the beginnings of his fascinating musical-visual journey, best experienced at his notoriously infectious live shows.

The alluring debut single (taken from the debut album “Forever” released later this year) showcases Debt’s unique and honest vocal style and five-finger banjo-style picking on guitar and “Banjitar”. With shades of Leonard Cohen and Van Morrison, Jonny’s lyrics capture his unique pseudo-psychedelic approach, creating an appeal driven by universal themes and the magnetic personality of his band.

After successful tours in Canada, China, the United States, a stunning showcase at MIDEM in Cannes, France and a new album of catchy alternative folk-rock songs produced by two-time Grammy winner Steve Bigas, Debt is armed and ready to conquer the UK with his energetic performances and sing-along live shows in May.
