Toronto singer/songwriter JAD first emerged in 2017, merging elements of indie genres with rock, ambient dream, and folk.
In early 2017, JAD began working as a solo artist and quickly crafted a distinctive style that he augmented in the studio with lush multi-tracked vocal and instrumental arrangements. In July 2017, he delivered his debut full-length, Still Life, an artfully crafted audio painting that serves as a meditation on moments of lovelessness, solitude, and the beauty of emotion. Following the release of the album, JAD proceeded to go on two small headlining tours. Songs such as “These Days” and “Knuckle Sandwich” caught the attention of an animator at CalArts, who asked JAD to provide the music to their animation “Lunch With Me Today”, which played at the 2018 CalArts Producers Show in Santa Clarita, CA.
A longtime admirer of Elliott Smith , JAD has recently spent some time at the late singer's studio in Van Nuys, CA (New Monkey Studio) with award winning engineer Greg Cortez. The studio serves as a temple — housing equipment and instruments used by the late artist himself.
The visceral connections to the world around us, the small pieces of poetry imparted unto us daily by the universe, are significant and impactful. It with the deepest sentiment of love that JAD hopes to evoke the same poignant response with his music, forming a perennial, immutable connection with audiences.
