John Jacob Magistery

Montreal’s John Jacob Magistery is making music to connect with people who are simply ‘surviving the dream’. Driven by the lead singer's obsessive personality, the alt-folk group experiments with beautiful dystopian sounds and emotionally charged lyrics. Their art springs from the joy and frustration of coming to terms with our collective sensory and emotional experience. Often compared to the likes of Jeff Buckley, Arcade Fire, and Bon Iver, their live performances showcase the group's strong vocals with an intent well crafted sound.

JJM has enjoyed a lot of momentum since their start. After the release of their first single ‘Greatest Story Ever Told', their debut EP 'Narcissism Unto Loneliness' helped them start turning heads. The single was voted in the top 30 songs by CHOM-FM radio listeners (Montreal’s biggest station) and several Djs from the station selected them as the top musical discovery of the year. The music video has subsequently generated over 90,000 views. 

Since then, they have shared bills with The Barr Brothers, Daniel Lanois, Blue Rodeo, the Struts (UK), Basia Bulat, and Carseat Head Rest. They have been featured in CMW (Toronto), NXNE (Toronto), OSHEAGA, Pop Montreal, Festival YUL EAT, M for Montreal, Montréal en Lumière, Montreal Jazz Festival, OUMF Festival, City Folk Festival (Ottawa), and Folk on the Canal Fest.
