The lead singer and songwriter for wide-cutting roots-pop outfit Long Jon Lev, Jonathan Ferguson’s soul was born in another era. With a knack for storytelling and a penchant for hummable melodies, his thoughtful, visually-rich songs would fit nicely in any playlist that features lyrical craftsmen like Josh Ritter, Elvis Costello, Jackson Browne, and Paul Simon. On stage, he is paradoxically the boy-next-door and that boy’s much louder neighbour–he is relatable yet rambunctious; inviting, yet intense. If you’re sitting down to listen, settle in: Jonathan Ferguson and his songs are about to pleasantly unsettle you, and he’s quite sure you’ll like it.
