Hey! I’m Jon, I sing and play guitar in the alt-punk band Napoleon from Toronto, ON!
Tell us a bit about your music and writing style.
It’s kinda hard to say how I write music, but it’s very important to me that when I write a song there is something about it that sticks out from the rest of our discography, typically the chorus. I try to make sure all our songs have the strongest choruses possible that just keep the listeners coming back!
How have you been keeping creative during the Pandemic?
I’ve been writing a ton of music at home! We’ve also had the pleasure of doing a few Livestream concerts in 2020, and we’re gonna be doing one in a couple of weeks to celebrate the release of Enemy Within out on June 11th!
If you were asked to suggest only one of your songs for someone to hear, which would it be?
Probably “Can’t Forget”! As I mentioned before I try to make sure all our songs have very strong choruses, and I personally feel like the chorus for “Can’t Forget” is the most infectious one that I’ve ever written!
Canadian Beats is all about Canadian music, so who are your current favourite Canadian bands/artists?
So many! To name a few though, I’ve really been enjoying the records that were put out during COVID from The Dirty Nil, METZ, and PUP! Some of my all-time favorites are also legendary bands like Alexisonfire and Billy Talent. We’ll actually be covering a Billy Talent song on our Enemy Within release Livestream on June 19!
