Born and raised in Hare Bay, Newfoundland, Canadian folk-rock singer/songwriter Jonny Starkes’ flare and style are sure to take you on an emotional rollercoaster.

Obtaining a black-belt in martial arts at the age of 18, Jonny is no stranger to loading up his arsenal. First introduced to the guitar at the age of 7, Starkes has used music as a weapon of self-expression and a way to tell his narrative through the rise and fall of life.

A rising star who wears his heart on his sleeve, Starkes leaves it all on the line with his powerful grit and soothing voice, reminiscent of rock singer Jon Bon Jovi. Jonny’s latest single, “These Four Walls,” is a mellow song about being broken, damaged, and helpless to yourself and those around you. You are never defined by your surroundings, only you can determine who you become. So, pick up that guitar and fight through the trials and tribulations of life with the power of music – life’s greatest weapon. Live in peace, love through peace.

Starkes is currently working on a new album and will continue to release singles throughout the year.

Stay tuned!
