01:52
aboot it yeah come on for a while I am
01:58
free in your life really ever right yeah
02:00
pretty much yeah talking about to start
02:02
like what in Canada really brought you
02:04
to music a lot early on it was piano
02:07
lessons yeah mom and dad put me in
02:08
because I used to sit at a little piano
02:10
and I’d make noise and on for hours
02:12
and I’m like okay we need to like solve
02:15
this problem and like get something to
02:16
show them how to actually play and so
02:18
that was like my modest beginning
02:20
you suck alone but we’ll bring in
02:21
someone to help yeah but no to be honest
02:25
like it was just a passion of mine and I
02:26
after lessons I kind of excelled in it
02:28
and you know I continued to play in high
02:30
school and got into so many different
02:32
bands and jazz band but like you didn’t
02:34
f around when it came to music I mean
02:36
you went to a conservatory you learned
02:38
from the best in Canada you also play
02:40
the trombone yeah piano is not just it
02:42
yeah you were in a cover band
02:44
I was shag shag it was a disco cover
02:48
band yeah duh
02:49
it was actually amazing and
02:51
life-changing I was 17 years old I
02:53
joined the band they already had a
02:54
massive following I had no idea what I
02:56
was getting into yeah cuz I wasn’t
02:58
really into disco in high school I was
03:00
like okay I’m gonna join this disco band
03:01
whatever they told me they were gonna
03:03
pay me 200 bucks to play trombones like
03:04
done hell so I went to the first show it
03:06
was sold out we could drink it was like
03:10
the biggest party I’ve ever been a part
03:11
of and I was on stage and people were
03:13
dancing to my music I was like this is
03:14
incredible yeah is that like in that
03:16
moment is that your first brush with
03:18
like a live performance and feeling the
03:21
real energy of an audience yeah because
03:24
any for us before that was like a band
03:25
recital or like a piano recital you know
03:28
what people are like sleeping in the
03:29
back row so no this was like a complete
03:32
180 and there’s something about a cover
03:33
band right like from the audience
03:35
perspective you love them
03:37
instantaneously because it’s their funky
03:40
take on your favorite for sure for sure
03:42
and this particular band the musicians
03:44
were all graduates of this of the music
03:47
school and so they’re amazing musicians
03:49
amazing following and the music was
03:52
incredible yeah so just that that just
03:54
just opened me up to it and cool yeah so
03:57
you’ve you’ve had a few albums and in
03:59
Canada you know you you released two not
04:02
under Sean hook right ma yes that’s true
04:05
actually why you really did your
04:06
homework come on come on yeah how do you
04:09
pronounce your last name it’s H ello K
04:12
yeah helu cough holo-call it’s a it’s
04:15
Russian he said hulu cough and you
04:17
immediately said it wrong and then you
04:21
said her own don’t worry you’re not the
04:22
first one it’s like he’s been Joe and
04:24
you’re like John
04:27
okay so you’re doing two albums not
04:29
under Sean hook in Canada yeah
04:32
you have the one album is okay I’m gonna
04:34
pronounce it wrong the the cosmonaut
04:36
mm-hmm and the girl that’s right
04:38
that is the oven that you release in
04:40
Canada under Sean hook yes you have like
04:42
three hits from this album you going on
04:43
the hot 100 candidate yes I mean you you
04:46
really reach some serious success yeah
04:48
it was great I mean it that album helped
04:50
me get nominated for a Juno Award which
04:52
is kind of the Canadian equivalent to a
04:54
Grammy as Best New Artist I lost the
04:56
weekend which isn’t bad because he
04:58
already had stuff going down stateside
04:59
yeah
05:00
yeah so that record was kind of like a
05:02
big stepping stone for me so okay and
05:04
this is always the most fascinating to
05:05
me whenever I get a chance to talk to a
05:07
Canadian artists and somebody who
05:08
started in music in Canada a lot of it
05:11
is attached to American artists and
05:14
American music yeah
05:15
what is how hard is it really to rise to
05:18
Canadian fame because you’re not really
05:21
just competing against your Canadian
05:22
peers you you just said it you’re
05:24
competing with people like the weekend
05:25
yeah yeah it’s it’s tough really like
05:28
you know to be completely honest that
05:30
the chance I have to release some music
05:31
in America you know a year ago year and
05:34
a half ago it was like wow is this gonna
05:36
happen for me you know and it was it’s
05:38
always been a big goal of mine to make
05:40
it happen and I’m just so thankful that
05:42
I had a song do so well in Canada being
05:45
only Canadian like like like you said
05:48
like we have the weekend like carly rae
05:50
jepsen justin bieber obviously but a lot
05:51
of these songs are american productions
05:53
and songs that are being promoted by big
05:55
american companies and so the reach into
05:58
canada really really helps that out so
06:00
for just a solely domestic artist to
06:03
kind of get up into you know the top ten
06:05
just being domestic it’s it’s it’s tough
06:08
you know so yeah I’m just very thankful
06:10
that you know the music connected hell
06:12
yeah yeah I mean you really did you
06:14
killed it in Canada at what point do you
06:16
realize that like hey I’ve kind of maxed
06:19
out here hmm you know I can’t grow to
06:21
where I need to grow I need to take my
06:24
show you know down south yeah you know
06:26
what sense it on a map Yeah right for
06:28
sure I mean no it’s true when I first
06:31
got into music my goal was always to
06:33
make it in America like I think we were
06:35
talking at lunch I’ve been back and
06:36
forth for seven years
06:38
I actually first got my start here
06:40
writing music for ABC that was my first
06:42
contract ever signed was a songwriting
06:44
deal when I was like 22 I came down and
06:47
I had some showcases I got introduced to
06:48
ABC Nixon you know they started sending
06:51
me work and they’re like hey can you
06:52
write a song for the show knocked it out
06:53
got a place which by the way like is a
06:55
really interesting way to start I mean
06:58
you’re going to you’re a good-looking
06:59
dude instead of coming you know like
07:02
like branding you and doing you up and
07:04
putting you on the road I mean you kind
07:06
of took a different approach you
07:07
composed music for TV you wrote for TV
07:09
yeah I kind of just went wherever the
07:11
momentum was like literally like I was
07:13
in Vancouver and I put my Canadian
07:15
accent came out thank you er hey put
07:19
music up online and a music supervisor
07:21
reached out and said hey when you in LA
07:22
next and I had never been at that point
07:25
I was like I’ll be there next week and
07:27
hopped on a plane came down played a
07:29
showcase met ABC they offered me this
07:32
deal after that and kind of that’s I
07:34
just kept following omentum interesting
07:36
way to get your foot in the door yeah
07:38
and you saw a different side of the
07:40
industry were you writing based on
07:42
episodes or were you writing songs and
07:44
then having them placed in episodes it
07:46
was all over the place I think most of
07:48
it was the songs that I did place were
07:51
songs that they basically said okay
07:52
here’s a scene here’s an episode okay go
07:55
right to it sometimes I’d like a really
07:57
cool project I did was for a show called
07:58
Eli Stone and the composer sent me this
08:01
beautiful composed piece no snow
08:03
structure like no like here’s the verse
08:06
here’s the chorus but like hey do you
08:08
want to try make it a song and I was
08:10
like sure so I tried two things and I we
08:12
got two songs and that they were the
08:13
main songs of the show Wow Matt so it
08:15
was really cool like flew me down put me
08:17
in this big studio with an orchestra and
08:18
it was awesome that’s insane yeah I was
08:21
a lot of fun I was a really cool start I
08:22
mean that’s an a cool start you learn a
08:26
lot yeah yeah when you look back at that
08:29
phase of your career what do you feel
08:31
like you learned the most like what
08:33
piece of knowledge do you utilize today
08:35
that you learned while you were writing
08:37
songs for TV you know I think I’ve
08:40
learned to be more more open really like
08:44
the collaboration process really taught
08:47
me a lot because I learned a lot from
08:49
big writers and big producers how how
08:52
they work how to be
08:52
more efficient how to you know just get
08:55
to the heart of the matter and not not
08:57
necessarily just rely on like this magic
09:01
you know song ready is magic but as soon
09:03
as you start telling yourself oh I’m
09:04
doing something great this is amazing
09:05
this is amazing you know that can be
09:08
sometimes that can be good but but a lot
09:11
of times it’s like you’re just serving
09:12
your ego yeah and so I guess I don’t
09:14
know I think the more you can get rid of
09:17
way from the ego and and and get in a
09:20
room with honest people you you create
09:22
better work and we were talking about
09:24
that at lunch I mean you’re saying you
09:26
understand and you know where your
09:28
weaknesses are yeah in that creative
09:30
song production process yeah and you
09:33
build upon your weaknesses for sure you
09:35
know what you bring to the table yeah
09:36
like a lot of times I can be my worst
09:38
enemy like I’m super critical of what I
09:40
do so when I’m writing a song by myself
09:42
sometimes it’ll take me a long time to
09:45
get it done it usually it takes me a
09:46
while to get it done because I’m just so
09:47
critical of every move and I might be
09:49
axing a really good idea and so that’s
09:52
the struggle I find and that’s I guess
09:53
that would be my weakness sound of your
09:55
heart single right now you vibing with
09:58
it yeah yeah yeah it’s it’s amazing like
10:02
it’s been it’s surprise in a good way
10:03
like when I wrote that song was the same
10:05
process I’ve done with with all my songs
10:07
and this one just really connected so
10:09
I’m just I’m just excited and stoked it
10:11
is and we’re going again like we were
10:13
talking about it at lunch yeah I want to
10:15
get into it a little bit and what side
10:16
of your heart is that a song when you
10:17
walk into the studio did you know where
10:19
you wanted to go with it was there a
10:21
lyric where did it start from yeah well
10:24
that was another another collaboration
10:25
there was another writer in the room
10:27
Todd Clark and a producer guy that goes
10:30
by cause who’s nominated for two Grammys
10:31
this year for a song called black of the
10:33
berry Kendrick Lamar awesome right like
10:36
super talented people and yeah we just
10:38
walked into the room and actually Todd
10:40
had like the melody idea like the first
10:43
part of the the chorus and we just went
10:45
off of that and and just built from
10:48
there and there started talking about
10:49
dialogue what does this feel like and
10:50
then I sat down on the piano and I
10:51
started playing with the different
10:53
chords and the arrangements and then we
10:55
had the chorus and it took forever to
10:56
get his verse and then I was just like
10:57
fed up and I started being like what it
10:59
was like you know it’s like no lyrics
11:03
but the melody that became the verse
11:05
yeah and
11:06
like yeah let’s go that so is just a lot
11:07
of it’s like building or putting a
11:09
puzzle together one step at a time yeah
11:11
that’s really cool
11:12
that’s really really cool I want to be
11:14
in a studio with someone watching them
11:16
and create like that I think that’d be
11:17
really interesting very fascinating
11:19
interesting dynamic because at the end
11:21
of the day I mean a song like that the
11:23
sound of your heart it’s yours really
11:24
mhm it’s coming from you know your point
11:27
of view your voice it’s whether it was
11:29
personal to begin with yeah you know
11:31
whether it was or not it becomes
11:33
personal yeah and that’s what I always
11:34
do like I always bring it to a personal
11:36
place like you know whether someone
11:38
brings in a melody idea or a lyric idea
11:40
or a concept it’s like how does that
11:41
song relate to me and and how can I get
11:44
that point across in three minutes and
11:47
not sound like I’m being redundant or
11:49
stealing from someone else and that’s
11:50
the challenge of it and it is it’s it
11:53
can be like work sometimes well every
11:55
time you’re listed on the internet
11:56
you’re Jonah is pop electric rock right
11:59
is that do you want that’s a you know
12:02
it’s good actually I think because
12:03
that’s though I do I I think there was a
12:06
big classic rock phase in my life that I
12:07
listened to a lot in like high school
12:09
and then now I’m like really into India
12:12
lectronimo you know I were talking yeah
12:13
briefly about the years and years
12:15
consider that kind of indie electronic
12:17
and then yeah I think there’s soul
12:20
influences as well so yeah I mean I
12:22
guess it’s good to have that description
12:24
because I feel like it is appropriate do
12:26
you think descriptions like that with
12:27
lemon art do you go at it with that
12:29
description of mine or do you just go it
12:31
was it goes yeah I think like like
12:34
sessions right now I walk in I say
12:35
listen guys this is kind of what’s
12:37
working for me you know sometimes you
12:39
walk in a session and a producer be like
12:41
hey I’ve got this really sick beat bro
12:43
like we just need like a cool little
12:44
melody and like let’s try make this beat
12:47
sound good yeah that’s not are you
12:49
kidding me I’m afraid this is scary this
13:04
could be scary I might as might have
13:06
missed it hello
13:09
I’ll call ended oh thank god do you like
13:12
that speak to you like about this
13:17
I think it’s Inspector Gadget can you
13:19
put it oh wait are you hello hello can
13:25
you put it on like silent like can you
13:27
put your watch on silent yeah I don’t
13:31
mean like do it I just was like I don’t
13:33
know anything about Apple watches yeah
13:35
you can’t with The Watcher Do Not
13:41
Disturb is on girl forgot for me like
13:46
we’re just a cliche couple cuz I got her
13:49
ones Wow
13:52
you walk into the studio where he was
13:54
pretty sure they might have a bead they
13:55
might just be asking you for a melody
13:56
and that doesn’t work for you yeah yeah
13:58
I’m like I’m beginning to learn because
14:00
the success was sounding your heart
14:02
really this song is there’s not much
14:04
going on in terms of production it’s
14:05
just you can hear my vocals really well
14:07
the story’s tight the melodies really
14:09
tight and I guess those that’s what I
14:12
worry about most not necessarily genre I
14:15
will think about tempo and feel but I
14:18
don’t know I mean I guess I don’t walk
14:19
in be like hey we’re gonna go country
14:20
song today like obviously I’m not gonna
14:22
be country that’s not my style but I
14:25
don’t know it’s more of a vibe what do
14:26
you think TJ connects with listeners you
14:30
listen to top 40 already there in pop
14:32
music yeah I mean is it the lyrics
14:35
is it the pulled back stripped-down
14:37
production you know is it more of a
14:39
story what is it what I mean I am
14:42
old-school I think I think it’s this
14:45
story and the salt and the song number
14:47
one and I guess it’s a bit the
14:49
combination of everything I mean there’s
14:51
a reason it Dells at the top of the
14:52
charts yeah there’s the production is
14:54
just a company meaning companying
14:56
her amazing vocal the amazing songwriter
14:59
and craftsmanship and that dory and it
15:01
comes to the top exactly I feel like
15:04
there’s other songs out there that are
15:05
just they sound good
15:07
yeah sonically that they might be a bit
15:10
more gimmicky a little more kitschy I
15:12
guess is the word but I can’t speak for
15:15
everybody because everyone everyone has
15:16
a different vibe in terms of what they
15:18
think is great but of course but I think
15:20
there’s also like the facts sometimes
15:22
right so that kitschy you know very very
15:24
hooked base song you know heavy
15:27
production it’s gonna do well but the
15:29
shelf life might not be there right
15:30
whereas an Adele
15:31
one that has a story and it’s trip back
15:33
and it’s genuine and it’s pure yeah that
15:36
album is going to last forever for sure
15:38
and I knew you know it wasn’t the fact
15:40
that she sold six and a half million
15:41
records that like solidified it for me
15:43
that was one of the reasons yeah no
15:44
stalking my friend Craig and his dad is
15:46
in his 70s and he he was telling me that
15:49
his dad bought his friend who’s in his
15:52
60s he’s a dude yeah Adele’s album for
15:55
Christmas yeah so great it’s crazy yeah
15:58
she’s a timeless artist and I think
15:59
that’s keys it’s for me anyways it’s to
16:02
write timeless music and and that’s what
16:04
I gravitate towards more like that song
16:06
will be just as big 50 years from now
16:08
we’ll be gone hopefully exactly Isleton
16:13
John last night and there’s a reason why
16:14
everyone was standing up after every one
16:17
of his songs because he is it doesn’t
16:19
get better than that no it doesn’t he’s
16:21
that like he’s a classic and and and
16:24
he’s a great piano player a great singer
16:26
a great everything and to me he checks
16:28
all the boxes on why obviously and I
16:30
think Dells in that same category she’s
16:32
already a living legend in classic does
16:34
the next Elton John exist today do we
16:36
have do we have songs that will be
16:39
played for the next 50 60 70 years that
16:41
doesn’t belong to Adele yeah I think so
16:44
I think Bruno Mars is is is on his way I
16:47
think he’s he’s a legendary artist in
16:49
the making yeah this guy named Sean hook
16:53
I aspire to be like that and if I can
16:58
ever get half the quarter of the eighth
17:02
oh yeah that career that’d be amazing
17:04
like when you watch out on John do you
17:06
just walk away like fired up and just
17:08
passion forward yeah ready to swing
17:11
yet I was telling DJ last night that’s
17:14
like whisper Nazir’s like I cannot wait
17:16
to play tomorrow an incredible new
17:18
record deal yeah Hollywood Records yeah
17:20
they’ve been they’re amazing they’ve
17:22
been incredible so far no it’s it is
17:31
great they’re like an all seriousness
17:33
you know cuz I’ve been with labels
17:35
before and I’ve had meetings with labels
17:38
before and you know sometimes you
17:40
leaving like I don’t know if that was
17:41
like this person was being actually
17:43
honest with me sincere it’s like
17:44
talk to you later like blah blah blah
17:46
everyone in Hollywood Records has said
17:48
what they’re gonna do and have done it
17:50
and I have done more and that’s all and
17:53
artists can ask where from the label
17:54
right and you know I mean you’ve
17:56
accomplished some serious stuff in
17:58
Canada yeah like you’re not coming here
18:00
like lost by any means right
18:02
you know the business you know the
18:04
industry yeah and you obviously know
18:06
where grosses yeah like you’re coming to
18:08
the table knowing a lot like you’ve done
18:09
these radio promo runs before yeah yeah
18:11
do your friends between Canada and here
18:14
in the States yeah I mean I think
18:15
obviously then the market is it’s like
18:18
eight percent of the market in America
18:19
so that I guess that the means to
18:21
support their own the domestic aren’t
18:25
necessarily there from the from the top
18:26
but the cool thing about Canada there’s
18:29
a lot of grants that that they allow
18:32
artists like myself when I stopped
18:34
coming up to you know put money into
18:35
tour and put money into making a record
18:38
what else is there they are huge in that
18:40
that’s yeah well shoot me there that’s
18:42
places are crazy and they support the
18:44
arts they do and can con is another term
18:47
that so in Canada basically 35 percent I
18:51
think 35 percent forty percent of
18:52
whatever content they play in the hour
18:54
has to be Canadian cool so that’s a
18:56
that’s a really good one as well that’s
18:58
really cool but the other side of it is
19:00
it kind of creates a bit of like
19:03
mediocrity because it it’s funny it
19:07
gives more I don’t want to like talk
19:09
trash about it but it’s the nature of it
19:11
and I was kind of in that and I saw it
19:12
firsthand where I’d walk into a station
19:14
they would have in this pool on the
19:16
right
19:17
everything that’s blowing up in the
19:18
world and this Pullman left can con so
19:21
when one of the songs from the left got
19:25
close to the right can’t go got close to
19:26
the rest of the world there’d be a bit
19:28
of a ceiling camp con ceiling so if your
19:30
song gets between like 10 and like seven
19:33
or five that’s a win in can con terms
19:36
interesting yeah I mean I talked to
19:37
magic about it yeah they must have been
19:40
there and done that to you
19:41
yeah but they blew up in France first in
19:43
Australia first and then they want
19:45
number one in America before they didn’t
19:47
Canada like Canada was on that record
19:49
but they they got as high as number five
19:51
route at that record route they’ll stop
19:53
you purposefully not purposefully it’s
19:57
just that it’s just a thing it’s
19:58
just like I don’t know what it is it’s I
20:00
mean same with carly rae jepsen like she

charity effort this show is called what
23:18
was it fashion cares passion rocks no
23:22

23:35
of the show being Elton’s
23:37
invited you and so a select monokini
23:40
artist on stage to perform with him I
23:42
was like are you kidding alright cool so
23:44
it was me and like 12 other 12 other
23:47
artists and we were background singers
23:48
essentially so we show up to soundcheck
23:50
we learned like these really complex
23:51
background parts and we’re looking hoi
23:53
was do you know Chantal Kreviazuk she’s
23:55
an artist from Canada I’ve heard the
23:57
name before I don’t know okay so she was
24:03
with me and Serena Ryder was the other
24:06
singer that I was sitting beside and
24:07
Serena’s an amazing vocalist and we’re
24:08
looking at you’re like these are like
24:10
some complex backgrounds so rehearsal
24:12
everyone’s going in hard like we want to
24:13
get this right and want to nail this and
24:15
you’re talking like some world-class
24:17
artist yeah so Showtime comes around and
24:20
we were the last song before the Encore
24:23
so we all come out
24:25
we’re ready to go like we start singing
24:27
our parts and like we’re like our mics
24:32
were off how much were not no for real
24:36
for real do you think it was dead on
24:39
purpose I think so I think he probably
24:41
was like I want he’s he was in that
24:43
soundcheck I think he got his team to
24:44
record it and was like oh let’s hear out
24:48
this is rubbish
24:50
diz ain’t goin behind me yeah but at
24:51
least he was nice like he didn’t want to
24:53
tell you hey you guys weren’t that great
24:56
yeah there were some people that were
24:57
taking liberties to like through some
24:59
drunk people on stage and there’s
25:00
probably a smart thing yeah did he have
25:04
the red piano no it was black piano okay
25:06
that red piano last night was amazing
25:07
he’s nice so jealous
25:09
yeah hey one day that incredible one day
25:12
wait you’re you but you have a Guinness
25:14
Book World Record yeah for what standing
25:18
on a Swiss exercise ball for the longest
25:19
time in the world wait how long it was
25:22
three hours and 16 minutes and six
25:26
yeah yeah yeah one of those guys no I’m
25:33
being I’m being completely honest so as
25:36
you know for Canada and when you’re born
25:39
you get fitted for skates and I played a
25:40
lot of hockey okay
25:41
growing up and I used to do I used to
25:44
train with the Swiss exercise ball I
25:45
went to the point where I would jump up
25:47
with barbells and do squats on the ball
25:50
and then I’d set up like six other balls
25:52
and I jump from home football at the gym
25:55
and it became like this thing I was
25:56
obsessed with working out on the ball I
25:58
wanted to join the circus so what that’s
26:02
crazy it is crazy
26:05
and I I was obsessed with like Guinness
26:07
World Records as a kid as I call either
26:09
so cool there’s the only books I’d read
26:10
I was impressive feat so fast-forward to
26:14
adulthood kind of end of adolescence and
26:17
my dad saw the guy break the world
26:20
record for standing on a ball at
26:21
Stonehenge and he was like all this was
26:22
so hard after 40 minutes my legs were
26:24
shaking I was like you like handsy
26:27
exactly like BS like dad I do at the gym
26:29
all the time he’s like well won’t you
26:31
get the record then while you apply is
26:32
like okay
26:36
and I caught a Guinness they hit me back
26:39
and then like your town so small we
26:40
can’t send someone there but if you do
26:43
this this this this this and this and do
26:45
the record and prove that you did the
26:47
record by doing this this this this and
26:49
this then you can be eligible so I did
26:52
one was like I had to get a police
26:53
officer or schoolteacher or a witness
26:55
form do it in a public place get media
26:57
to cover it and and and and document it
27:00
so you did 3 hours and 45 minutes 16
27:05
minutes and 6 seconds I wanted to be 16
27:07
minutes yeah I wanted to beat it by an
27:09
hour that was my goal so the the
27:11
original record was like two hours and
27:12
ten minutes okay
27:13
there was six minutes for me being like
27:15
should jump up chest eh should jump off
27:17
I should stay on I should keep going man
27:19
but it’s been an hour
27:19
so like I should have stayed on like
27:23
looking back because like I didn’t get
27:25
off when I was tired I got off after
27:37
onto another ball I jumped off to
27:39
another ball I was like yo Guiness I
27:41
could still do this I’m out there is
