Hillside Festival 2019

July 12 - 14

John Southworth

John Southworth is one of Canada's most distinctive and iconoclastic singer-songwriters. Since his orchestral-pop debut Mars Pennsylvania (1998), he has recorded twelve uncompromising, genre-defying records, including Niagara (awarded Album of the Year 2014 by Rolling Stone Germany) and this year's Miracle In The Night, both of which feature longtime band The South Seas. John’s songs have been written for and/or covered by Canadian artists Buck 65, Sarah Slean, Martin Tielli, Hawksley Workman, Veda Hille, Jully Black and Patricia O’Callaghan; his collaborations extend from Toronto’s Art of Time Ensemble to Fucked Up.
