Folksy Victoria duo (power trio?) Jon & Roy have a new record out called The Road Ahead is Golden. The band sent over a music video for their feature song “Runner.”
The band says: It’s a song about running away from things you shouldn’t be running from. In doing so, you’re not being honest with yourself and those around you. To be specific – it’s about deadbeat dads.
That’s a sad tale…being a Dad, growing up with a good man as a father…I feel for those that were let down by someone who was supposed to be there for them. Maybe this a timely tune for some with “Father’s Day” coming up.
Jon & Roy have been putting out music for years and The Road Ahead is Golden is their 7th LP!
The music video has a Wes Anderson vibe, showing some bro running around a beautifully framed Victoria; while the band performs in the back of a pick-up truck slowing winding through the Vancouver Island country side. You don’t have to like folk to love the look of this music video.
Look for Jon & Roy this summer at the Tall Tree Music festival!
