Sir Jonny Boon


Christchurch-based singer/songwriter Sir Jonny Boon has announced the release of his new album “Death & Daytime TV” in October 2017. The album was recorded over the last couple of years at River Studios in Totton, Hampshire. Jonny plans to donate the first two months of funds raised from the sales of the album to ‘Dorset Mind’; a mental health and suicide prevention charity, which Jonny is very passionate about. The album draws on a diverse array of subject matter from Jonny’s everyday life experiences including vampires, woollen jumpers and the Channel 4 TV show Countdown.

Sir Jonny Boon

Life doesn’t always have to be taken so seriously and even with those difficult challenges, Jonny cleverly turns them into fun uplifting infectious tunes. Though diverse and a little eccentric the album flows well and takes you on a little journey into the crazy world of “Sir Jonny Boon”. The self-knighted troubadour makes good use of that rarely used instrument, the glockenspiel; mixing it with guitars, ukulele’s, with even a bit of accordion thrown in for good measure. His songwriting style takes me back to the likes of Mike Harding and Richard Digance. He is someone with something to say and he says it through his music in a thoroughly original way.
