S2E06 - Jonas Bonnetta (Singer-Songwriter)


Ontario singer-songwriter Jonas Bonnetta is best known for his indie folk-pop project, Evening Hymns.

More recently, he released the ambient album All This Here under his own name, which started off as a score to a documentary film about an inn on Newfoundland's Fogo Island.

We talked to Jonas about his creative process in making the new album, how Jim O'Rourke's production inspired his own love for ambient music, and how performing songs about his late father led to physical and emotional exhaustion.
