About Wednesday Records

Santa Barbara, CA

Review: This guy is a "real deal" singer songwriter who will be among the next wave of great Canadian imports to charm the US music community.

Bio: Haven't heard of Jon McKiel yet? Perhaps its because he's spent the last year hauled up in his hometown of Halifax, Nova Scotia, in a dim lit house, armed with a guitar and a cigarette, writing beautifully affecting indie-pop songs. Joined by his bandmates Josh Kogon (bass), Cory LeBlanc (drums), Mike D'Eon (guitar) and Colin Crowell (synth and trumpet), Jon McKiel improves on the tradition of fellow Canadian bands like The Stills and Great Lake Swimmers by combining deep pop sensibilities with rich descriptive lyrics and haunting melodies. On songs like "Poor Heart" and "Get Caught," Jon delivers the genuineness that has attracted many to fellow singer/songwriters like Andrew Bird, Stephen Malkmus, and Ryan Adams.

Jon's new album, "The Nature of Things," will be released by Wednesday Records on February 12, 2008. The album follows Jon's self-titled debut, which was dubbed The Coast's "Top 50 Albums of 2006." "The Nature of Things" was recorded at the old Fort Apache in Boston (home of the Pixies' "Come on Pilgrim," Radiohead's "The Bends," and Dinosaur Jr.'s "Green Mind") by Thom Flowers. The record was mastered by Noah Mintz (The Dears, Stars, and Broken Social Scene) at Lacquer Channel in Toronto.
