The Johner Boys
The Johner Boys are made up of brothers Luc Johner, Jesse Johner, Quinn Johner, Matthew Johner, and friend Simon Jasieniuk. They started their music career together in 2011 and have since performed over 300 concerts on their own as well as with their father, Juno nominee and multiple Canadian Country Music Award winner, Brad Johner. They have been a part of the Telemiracle national cast for the last 6 years and have been on CTV and Global television several times.
In Janurary 2014, they released their first EP of cover songs and are in the process of writing their debut full-length original album. Luc is the primary songwriter and has written over 50 potential candidates for the project. His songwriting ability has earned him success most recently with the Saskatchewan Games, Co-op, and the Saskatchewan Rush professional lacrosse team.
On December 1st 2016, the boys released their debut album “Stories”. Comprised of 11 tracks, many genres are covered from radio friendly pop, to lighthearted jazz, to hard hitting stadium rock. Recorded at bass player Simon’s home studio “Beez Neez Recording” and produced by Brad, Luc, and Simon, this DIY project went from being a fun side project to a serious industry contender.
The Johner Boys Release a New Christmas Single "Let It Snowman, Let It Reindeer".
November 27, 2018
The Johner Boys new Christmas single "Let It Snowman, Let It Reindeer" will be available December 1st!
“Being fans of Relient K's incredible Christmas album entitled "Let It Snow Baby, Let It Reindeer", we thought using the word "snowman" would be even cheekier! We wanted to produce this as if it were a traditional holiday tune, using some "classic Christmas chords", and letting the 4-part harmony shine through. This song is about how it doesn't matter how cold or miserable it is outside, cause "we've got a fire that could brave any storm" so "there's no way that we could be cold tonight”.”
The Johner Boys release new single "Love in California".
October 2, 2018
The Johner Boys are helping you cling to the last rays of summer with their latest single "Love in California" which released October 5th. Written by Luc Johner and Eric Taylor, the warmth of this tune might be enough to take you out of the encroaching cold for a little while longer.
Luc says, "Love in California sounds like a sunset and feels like a road trip. It was a lot of fun to write about that feeling! Though I've never experienced it, we imagined ourselves living out of a van in California, never knowing where the day might take us, all while being surrounded by people we love!"
With influences including John Mayer and The Brothers Landreth, this guitar and vocal driven song has a somewhat nostalgic charm about it. "Love in Cali" as the boys found themselves calling it, was engineered and produced by the band's own Simon Jasieniuk out of Beez Neez Recording in Saskatoon. The sound of the boys' new single falls under the pop category, but stays true to the authentic instrumentation and arrangement they used in their debut album "Stories" which released in December of 2016.
The single can be found on all platforms for your enjoyment including the Johner Boys website www.thejohnerboys.com.
The Johner Boys debut album "Stories" releasing December 1st.
November 18, 2016
Comprised of 11 tracks, The Johner Boys debut album "Stories" covers many genres from radio friendly pop, lighthearted jazz, to hard hitting stadium rock. Recorded at bass player Simon Jasieniuk's home studio “Beez Neez Recording” and produced by father Brad Johner, Luc Johner, and Simon Jasieniuk, this DIY project quickly escalated from being a fun side project to a serious industry contender. Taking a little over 2 years to create, no stone was left unturned in the writing or production process.
The track listing includes a stadium instrumental opener called "Preface", the heavy Saskatchewan Rush lacrosse team anthem "Get Ready for the Rush" beside a friendly jazz tune written by Quinn Johner entitled "Effortlessly". The title track "Stories" is the album closer, and fronted by fine vocals and harmonies, it is a blend of soft piano ballad and epic orchestral rock.
December 1st can't come soon enough!
