Halifax, NS-based singer-songwriter, JONT has recently released his album, Thank You For The Medicine. Now, he has unveiled his single, “Surrounded By Love”, along with an official lyric video for the release, reminding audiences about the most important things in life while encouraging them to “sing along,” Jont says, and “have a dance, wherever you are.
“This song is about friendship,” he says. “It’s about remembering to live, every day, and remembering that every day is a bonus and we get to jump around, and dance for joy, and sing, and be human!
The beauty doesn’t go away or stop, we just stop seeing it.”
The video for “Surrounded By Love” has been in the can for a long time; Summer 2019, to be exact.
“It was filmed in Halifax before we offered the first live show with the new sound,” Jont recalls. “And speaking of the song being about friendship, my friends Matthew Ingraham and Lee Lester shot and edited the video, and did some really fun animation work on it, respectively, and now it really pops!
In the video, you can see some of the brilliant people who have made Thank You For The Medicine the album that it is,” he continues. “It really demonstrates the feel-good anthem of oneness and joy that we know as ‘Surrounded By Love.’”
