Music
Many of us have been lost in our lives and some more than once. It’s a terrifying thing to encounter and some of us have to go through it alone. The feeling of emptiness, confusion and not knowing what road to take really takes a toll on you. Everything seems to be falling apart around you and the walls that kept you safe are crumbling down. I wrote this song about a friend of mine who I helped get into rehab. I couldn’t let him keep going down the dark road he was on so I had to call an intervention. I had no idea how he would take it and was afraid of losing my friendship. That night turned out to be one of of the most important and life-changing moments of both our lives.
You can insert your own life story into these words. This is for anyone who’s lost and for the ones that have helped others find their way.

About

Following the same commitment to raw authenticity that fueled 2021’s My Lullaby, Montreal-born artist Jonathan Roy has further honed his singular alt-pop sound in Life Distortions, the fullest expression yet of his evolution as both a person and artist. While still featuring the strong hooks and melodies that made his music so popular in the early years of his career, the sonic terrain of this album is truer to Jonathan than anything else he’s done to date.

Jonathan tapped Juno award-winning musician/producer Brian Howes (Hinder, Skillet, Nickelback) to help produce the EP, along with Marc Beland, the drummer/percussionist in Jonathan’s band and one of his go-to creative partners for years now. Other producers on the Life Distortions include Tee (Drake, Alessia Cara), Stevie Aiello (Thirty Seconds To Mars, Of Mice & Men), Drew Polovick (Oston, Friday Pilots Club), and Heavy (lovelytheband, Dirty Heads). Surrounding himself with collaborators he trusts, Jonathan is following his own vision and eager for fans to experience what’s ahead.

“I think people will connect with what’s real,” says Jonathan. “People have bullshit detectors. I’m playing what I like in the songs. I’m trying to grab all the things I like from bands and people that I admire and I’m trying to put it in my soup, in my writing and melodies. I feel like I’m an old-school cat creating this weird pop alternative music and I love it.”

Life Distortions featuring the single “I Wanna Feel Love” is available now.
