About the Artist
You are invited to join us on Thursday July 20th, here at East Room at 8PM for an exclusive performance from Jaunt. Jaunt began as a duo in Hamilton, Ontario in 2014 crafting bedroom pop from different spaces. The duo then ballooned to a quintet as they convened in Toronto, and the sound evolved into deft, dense, melding sensibilities from each of the five pieces. As an eclectic whip-tight group with a clean live performance, they create a swift dose of breezy, smooth, R&B-leaning pop that’s hard to forget. Jaunt self-recorded and produced their debut EP, Chat, which was released independently in July of 2016. Working with a meticulously collaborative approach, Chat has made a strong viral impact on Soundcloud, Spotify and Canadian campus radios. They have received high praise from blogs including Complex, placing Chat on their list of “The Best Canadian EPs of 2016.” We are excited to share homegrown talent with you!
Presented in partnership by East Room and Timberland.
