Biography

Jonathan Personne is the solo project of Jonathan Robert, singer and guitarist of the Montreal post-punk band Corridor (Bonsound/Sub Pop). His penchant for lo-fi soundscapes and complexifying simple elements to suit his style has led him into uncharted territory, at the crossroads of dream pop, psychedelic rock and krautrock. The singer and multi-instrumentalist made a name for himself as a solo artist with the releases of Histoire naturelle (2019) and Disparitions (2020), both of which received praise from La Presse, NPR, Exclaim! and many others. Now Jonathan Personne ventures into a new minimalistic realm, ready to outdo himself once again with his eponymous third album. Scheduled to be released in the summer of 2022, and first to be released via Bonsound, Jonathan Personne reveals a slightly more polished and smoother sound, finely orchestrated alongside talented producer Emmanuel Éthier, with whom he previously collaborated on Junior, Corridor's most recent album.

Press Quotes

Le nouvel album de Jonathan Personne s’écoute d’un trait. Il est bref, 32 minutes seulement, mais il est captivant.

La Presse

Not only does Jonathan Personne lean in to the rock & roll genre lyrically, but melodically as well, with catchy rock riffs and a killer guitar solo.

Indie88

On dirait le fantôme d’un chanteur rock yé-yé québécois, c’est de toute beauté

Le Devoir

Across eight tracks, we’re treated to just about the full range of Robert’s musical oeuvre.

Cult MTL

[...] un troisième album solo nécessaire et fascinant.

Libération

[...] fort d’une séduction immédiate et d’arguments sonores qui dévoilent peu à peu leur richesse.
