John Southworth

Vocals, Guitar

Iconoclastic singer-songwriter John Southworth has recorded twelve genre-defying records, five with longtime band The South Seas including Niagara (2014) which was awarded Album of the Year by Rolling Stone Germany and Miracle In The Night (2019), hailed “a wonder of earthen poeticism, peculiar observations, and beautifully captured instrumentation”. The South Seas – featuring seasoned musicians Jean Martin (drums), Andrew Downing (bass), Parry Sound’s own Craig Harley (piano), and Thom Gill (guitar) – join John to create a unique style of chamber pop, blending jazz, folk and classical influences. John collaborates with Toronto’s Art of Time Ensemble and his songs have been performed by Buck 65, Sarah Slean, Martin Tielli, Hawksley Workman, Veda Hille, Jully Black and Patricia O’Callaghan. John Southworth and The South Seas are set to tour Europe in Fall 2019.
