Jon Hynes - Cardinal Giant LP
Label : Independent
Credits : Produced, engineered, mixed.
Making his own 4-track recordings in his basement just made Hynes a normal teenager growing up in Newfoundland. When you’re recording yourself it’s beneficial to play more than one instrument; Hynes taught himself to play everything in the house. That jack-of-all trades approach has served him well. Just in the past three years, Hynes has played bass on tour with Hey Rosetta! and The Hidden Cameras, guitar with Toronto Songwriter Donovan Woods, and is now a member of Evening Hymns.
”Jon Hynes was the recipient of The Overcast’s own Borealis Music Prize for his 2014 release Watchful Creatures, and his latest offering makes him an immediate contender for another nod at a big prize. Cardinal Giant is textured, poppy, and polished, and should be best explored through multiple listens – one hallmark of great art.” - The Overcast
