Toronto artist JonoJosh, aka JJ Gerber, had this to say about his track ‘Chance’ in an e-mail;
“A couple years ago during Canadian thanksgiving I was phoned by a friend Diane and she asked me to pray for her friend, a 30 year old woman who had two children and had been just diagnosed with cancer. She had been given two weeks to live. I really didn’t know what to do, so I wrote the first half of this song. I sang it every day for those weeks and she ended up living another 2 years.
After she passed the song took on a new meaning for me. Originally it was about giving her another chance to live, but now it’s song of hope. A song that is about fighting when you feel you have nothing left. It’s about supporting your friends and being unafraid to strive for your dreams.
So why release the song now and not 4 years ago? Well there’s been a new fight for me recently. The beautiful natural habitat which is featured in this video currently has a court case where developers are trying to rezone it and rip it up. This is our fight to keep it green.
The song is about hope and supporting each other, and the music video is about supporting the people, plants, and living things in your environment.”
Peach Pit frontman Neil Smith had this to say about ‘Seventeen’ in a press release;
“‘Seventeen’ was one of the first songs I wrote for Peach Pit, I wrote it 4 years ago, and at the time i’d been thinking a lot about when I was in high school and the dumb things I’d done and when i’d treated people shitty. I think like most people I tend to hold onto that sorta stuff for way too long, anyway the song’s all about those times when I was being a dink.”
The Vancouver band first emerged in 2016 with their debut EP Sweet F.A. The four-piece, made up of high school friends, describes their sound as being “Chewed Bubble Gum Pop”.
After developing a loyal fanbase, the band went viral after their self-titled track ‘Peach Pit’ was shared on YouTube. They further developed their following thanks to their online posts and dressing like Simpsons character Ned Flanders.
Their debut album Being So Normal will drop in September 2017 on Kingfisher Bluez. Catch Peach Pit on the following dates;
With it being post-holidays, not many artists are releasing new videos.

There will be no Videos for a Lazy Sunday this week.
(Hopefully) The feature will resume on November 27. I realize that h@tb has been following a irregular publishing schedule as of late but I am in the midst of a career change and don’t have the time I used to.
I am hoping to return to at least one post a day in the coming weeks.
