The pseudonym of Canadian singer/songwriter Jonas Bonnetta, Evening Hymns also includes a revolving door of fellow music artists backing Bonnetta live and on record. Created in Orono, Ontario, Bonnetta 1st found prominence along with his 2007 debut, Farewell to Tranquility. Although this is released under his genuine name, Bonnetta ultimately chosen the Evening Hymns moniker for dread that his music will be pigeonholed as common singer/songwriter materials. The first standard Evening Hymns recording, Spirit Guides, premiered in ’09 2009. Recorded in only four times at a skill gallery where Bonnetta worked well, the recording adopted in the footsteps of his debut, a variety of acoustic guitars, field recordings, and eclectic instrumentation. After Bonnetta shifted back again to his hometown to greatly help operate his family’s recently bought sawmill, his dad passed on. Channeling his grief into his songwriting, the outcomes would end up being the basis of his third record. Relocating to Perth, Ontario and surviving in a little cabin that partner and bandmate Sylvie Smith’s parents acquired simply bought, Bonnetta was became a member of by members from the Wooden Sky, Timber Timbre, and Town and Color to record what would become 2012’s Spectral Dusk. The remote control area and his father’s transferring gave the record an almost religious feel, shifting from brooding instrumentals to psychological paeans to his father.
