A feature on Jon Bryant and his recording 'Two Coasts For Comfort'

Half a decade ago, Halifax native Jon Bryant packed his bags and journeyed across the sea to Europe to travel and unravel the thread surrounding his purpose in life. While backpacking across the hills of Austria and breaking the soles of his dirt-stained feet in Greece, Jon began to write songs. Described as a phenomenal experience, Jon felt he was figuring out who he was in relation to himself, his place in the world and who he was before God. After this remarkable year, Jon moved to Seattle, to volunteer at various ministries and churches, where he was personally mentored. While living there, Jon was inspired to live a life against society's expectations. The call to return home came and so Jon left and enrolled at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. During his time of art education, Jon became serious about writing music. He worked hard to craft songs that reflected truth, life and love. These songs ended up on his debut album Two Coasts for Comfort, released in late 2009.
