Halifax-born and Vancouver-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jon Bryant explores the conundrum of connection and the innate inclination towards tribalism on his full-length debut for Nettwerk, Cult Classic (May 2019). In it, he channels his scepticism about, and fascination with, cults, painting a vivid picture of breaking away from the pack. Distilling dynamic Motown soul into a dream-folk framework and subtle groove into synth-driven chants punctuated by grunge spirit, Bryant has diligently refined a singular style since first emerging in 2009.
