(News release from the band) – The Montreal band John Jacob Magistery has had an exciting debut year. After forming in 2014, the group immediately began turning heads. Several CHOM radio DJs quickly backed the group as one the top new music discoveries of the year. Listeners from the station responded by voting JJM’s first single ‘Greatest Story Ever‘ into 2014’s top 30 songs.


With just an EP under their belt, many media outlets dubbed them as the next break out band from the Montreal music scene. They have performed on bills with Daniel Lanois (during Canadian Music Week), the Barr Brothers, Lia Ices (during NXNE), and Blue Rodeo (at the Strangers in the Night Starlight benefit concert). Keeping up with the momentum, JJM is presently in Ireland at the Grouse Lodge Recording Studios working on their upcoming debut album ‘Phantom i’ (other notables who have recorded there include Michael Jackson, Will I Am, U2, REM, etc.).

This great opportunity came as a result of winning 1st place in the international Recording Festival competition earlier this year. With the new album finished, the band will be returning just in time for their OSHEAGA performance on July 31st.
