bio

Jon Cohen is a Montreal a musician whose electrifying story songs transport listeners into the dreamlike dance floors of their minds. His soulful tunes are rooted in 90s fuzz-washed art rock, but quickly reach toward the sunshine of hip-shaking electro grooves. 

Lorem Ipsum is Cohen’s seventh studio release. Recorded almost entirely using an iPhone, the eight tracks take listeners on an inner journey while simultaneously making you want to dance. The album is a melting pot of early 2000 fuzz electronica, from Bonobo to OK GO, Chemical Brothers to Tame Impala.  

Cohen collaborated with Montreal luminaries Sabrina Halde of Groenland, Cellist Justin Wright & Lou Laurence of DJ Champion to name a few. The new album was mixed by audio Guru Steven Chouinard (Le Couleur,) and mastered by Richard Addison (Daniel Bélanger, We are Wolves) This album is truly a community.  

Jon Cohen has been described as “...like no one else in the Canadian music scene” (Exclaim!). Cohen has played with many great bands including The Dears, Final Flash, JF Robitaille and more. Under his own moniker, Cohen has toured Canada, USA, UK and Europe, as a solo artist and with  band, supporting many noteworthy acts like Rich Aucoin, Dropkick Murphies, Justin Ruthledge, Elephant Stone, Moulettes, Sean Lennon, and playing festivals likeCMW, Pop Montreal, Iceland Airwaves and Sled Island among others. Jon also co-organizes the One Wo/Man Band Festival.
