Jonny Stevens has been named the new executive director of the Halifax Pop Explosion (HPX), taking over from the previous director, Waye Mason. (You can see our goodbye interview with Mason here.)
From the Pigeon Row press release:
Stevens has spent the past three years as the education and events coordinator with Music Nova Scotia. A self proclaimed music nerd, he has sailed around the world on a tall ship, toured throughout North America in a van with his band, and released five albums. Stevens is also an instructor at the Nova Scotia Community College Music Business program.
"I am very excited to start this new challenge with the Halifax Pop Explosion Association," says Stevens. "I'm proud to be a part of HPX's 18 year history and can't wait to work with everyone."
