Jonas was the automobile of cock rock and roll renaissance guy Jonas Tomalty, a Montreal-born music biz lifer who began executing at age 3 having a children’s choir and later on toured together with his dad, Rick. At 20 Tomalty shaped the alt-rock combo Rubberman, which in 1999 earned Montreal train station CHOM’s annual L’Esprit skill competition. A stint fronting Blues Blooded adopted before he shaped Jonas in 2004 with guitarist Corey Diabo, bassist Domenic Romanelli, and drummer Ange E. Curcio. The band’s self-titled debut adopted later on that year, appealing to attention because of its cover from the Stevie Nicks traditional “Advantage of Seventeen.” An starting gig for Vehicle Halen also released Jonas to prominence, so when the fan pursuing swelled, filmmaker Jean-Francois Pilon spent annually documenting their existence on the highway. The ensuing film, Jonas: The Pursuit, adopted in 2007, soon after the release of the smash sophomore LP, Suite Existence.
