John Southworth

John Southworth is one of Canada’s most distinctive and iconoclastic music artists, respected for forging ahead with his own unique brand of music-making, while garnering high praise for his inimitable contribution. 

His songs have been covered by and written for some of Canada's leading artists. His most recent release is Niagara, a uniquely-crafted double record featuring a Canadian and American side, named the 2014 album of the year by Rolling Stone Germany. 

In the previous five years, John traveled a rogue whirlwind, releasing the cassette-only SPIRITUAL WAR cassette tape - a collection of modern peasant songs recorded on a shoebox-size Sony cassette corder model TCM-939, an anti-record of actual rejected jingles (Failed Jingles for Bank of America & other U.S. Corporations), the grave and austere synth-rock of 2009’s Mama Tevatron quickly followed by Human Cry's stunning, elegiac balladry, the grand delusional show-tunes of West Coast Persona 98 EP, and Easterween, a surreal cabaret-operetta featuring the Klezmer-Stravinskyesque arrangements of Juno-winning composer-bassist-cellist Andrew Downing.  

Daydreams for Night is his first book.  He makes his own videos.
