Jon Mullane is already renowned throughout the world for his work as Jonathan M – including three international albums, seven radio charting singles, a music video that played the film festival circuit, and a coveted feature performer slot at his native Canada’s celebrated East Coast Music Awards. With his brand new CD, The Source, now released on Prism/Fontana North-Universal in Canada , Jon has created his most personal record yet – choosing it as the first release to be issued by Jon Mullane. “I’d grown so much through my experiences performing all over the world. And that evolution – both my own and in my music – has all ultimately led to The Source”, states Jon. “It’s definitely the most accurate reflection of who I am as an artist and of the extremely wide range of styles and influences I feel passionate about and which have greatly informed my own music. That was why I felt it was time to take the ’Jonathan M’ experience to the next level and to make my first record as ’Jon Mullane’.” The Source is that rarest of treasures – a ‘renaissance debut’ release by an established musical talent, seeking to raise his internationally-acclaimed sound to the next level and to bring it to a world in which it could not be more contemporary than it is at this moment!
Produced by longtime industry vet David Rashed (of heavyweight Canadian icon, Haywire) and Honeymoon Suite alumni Creighton Doane, The Source already sounds like it could be a “Greatest Hits” record from start to finish, with each song a uniquely different representation of Jon Mullane’s multi-dimensional melodic rock. And this is one exhilarating sonic journey – soaring from the opening irresistible power pop rush of first single (and video) “Go The Distance” to the cutting-edge dance-rock grooves of “Thinkin’ About U”, and “Push Push”, blasting out industrial-infused synthpop anthems like “Closer to You”, after drifting across the hauntingly soulful strains of “Love Can Move a Mountain” and the achingly confessional closing ballad, “One More Chance.” The Source is a lush collection of electronica-tinged, hook-laden, irresistible melodic rock gems – each a potential hit by its own right, comprising an album even greater than the sum of its parts. Jon Mullane’s The Source sounds completely original, yet still manages to evoke the comfort of songs that have long been a part of life’s tapestry.
The Source is a complex, layered work – musically and lyrically. But what else would you expect from an artist who has spent both his life and his career as a survivor. Having lost both parents while still very young, then having had to overcome a potentially career-ending case of tinnutus in 1999, Jon Mullane has laid everything out on the line for his new, tour-de-force album. Whether it's his fascination with UFOs (hence, the name-source of his own Flying Disc Records), his status as a former tennis pro and trainer, his degree in psychology or even his venturing towards law school – before being wisely put back on the music path by those that saw his talent, Jon Mullane (AKA international recording star, Jonathan M) is a complex individual. “When it comes down to it, music is where my heart has always been. But not just any music. It's got to come from my heart.” And for the best insight into one of music's best-kept secrets, Jon Mullane is preparing to unveil his source – The Source. Venture into this wellspring and you'll be amazed by what you'll find – both in the irresistible songs of Jon Mullane – and in yourself...
