Jono

BIO/DESCRIPTION

Jono is a hip-hop artist hailing from the Moncton in New Brunswick. Now based in Moncton, the self-taught producer began captivating audiences in 2019 with instant reactions from the crowd. Opportunities unfolded for Jono, including performances at Pop Montreal and the Festival 506 in 2021.

In April 2022, collaborating with his DJ, Metaphyzik, the boom-bap style of Swedish artist BBZ Darney converged with Jono’s modern sounds to create his debut project, “Party Chenous.” A finalist for the Music NB Awards in the Recording of the Year category, the album is considered by some as the new classic of Acadian hip-hop.

In 2023, Jono was chosen to represent New Brunswick at the Jeux de la Francophonie in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of the Congo. He will also be part of the 56th edition of the Festival international de la chanson de Granby. He will kick off 2024 in a residency at Entr’Art in Dead Man’s Flat, Alberta, where he will focus on solidifying his stature in Acadian hip-hop through the creation of his next album.
