Jon Mckiel (2014)

Sackville, NB

Halifax’s Jon McKiel is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter who uses both traditional and nonconventional instruments to achieve his vision: thick indie folk that juxtaposes his warm vocals with sludgy guitars. McKiel’s music occupies the space between a garage plastered with mud and old newspapers and a hushed church still haunted by the spirits that haven’t quite moved on.
