Jon Laurie-Beaumont is a songwriter on the move. Getting his start in the folk/roots scene in Ottawa, Ontario, he keeps one foot firmly planted in the city of his birth. But artistic opportunities and a new and exciting music scene has seen him set up a secondary home in Toronto, Ontario as of 2013. With a wide range of influences from Bill Withers to The Band, just exactly where Jon’s music belongs is the subject of much speculation. Roots, folk, blues, soul and country are all terms that have been thrown around. But regardless how you classify it, Jon Laurie-Beaumont’s music is honest, eloquent and emotional.
