Jon McKiel

Amherst singer-songwriter Jon McKiel moved to Halifax five years ago and has been playing around town for a while, but it wasn’t until recently that he started getting serious about music. “I felt like it was time to get my shit together and get the songs out there,” he says of his music, which has drawn comparisons to Brian Borcherdt and early Wintersleep. With a backing band comprised of fellow imports Cory LeBlanc and Josh Kogon, McKiel and company will have their debut album out in a matter of weeks. Stay tuned....
