Jon Mckiel plays vital guitar rock and bent-string lullabies, equal parts blister-forming-grit and punch-drunk-wistfulness, a system of love, solo, and with comrades-in-peace Jay Crocker (of Joyfultalk/No More Shapes), Sean Dicey (Joyfultalk), and Aaron Mangle (of Cousins). Memorial Ten Count is his 4th album and You’ve Changed Records debut.

A tenderhearted and clear-eyed tour of the small town Atlantic provinces

“Josephine the river queen is a lot like you and me. She’s lighter now, all lifted up and smoked out from the turning century. She’s a loud mouth baby and don’t you come save me that’s all I’ll ever be.”

Please watch this tenderhearted and lovely video for Jon Mckiel’s “Brothers,” directed by Colin Medley.

“Brothers” appears on the album Memorial Ten Count, available March 10, 2017 from You’ve Changed Records and Headless Owl Records.

Listen to first single "Conduit"; peace sign to America

You’ve Changed Records is very excited to welcome Jon Mckiel to the fold with the release of Memorial Ten Count (YC-030) on March 10, 2017. We’ve long been fans of Jon’s wonderful, sophisticated, and lyrical tunes, as heard on his previous self-titled 10”, the Tonka War Cloud LP, and the Confidence Lodge EP, and were blown away when we heard his new music. Characterized by intricate guitar arrangements and constantly surprising melodic progressions, Memorial Ten Count (named for the fabled toll that marks the death of a champion boxer) is full of vital guitar rock, equal parts blister-forming-grit and punch-drunk-wistfulness., and is a powerful document of the intense chemistry of the Jon Mckiel band: lead guitarist Jay Crocker (of experimental instrumental group Joyfultalk), bassisist Sean Dicey (also of Joyfultalk), and drummer Aaron Mangle (of Cousins). The album was recorded live to tape by Jay Crocker in Crousetown, NS.

Please listen to ‘Conduit’ (side 2, track 1), a peace sign to America, a system of love:

We are pleased to be releasing Memorial Ten Count in collaboration with our good friends at Headless Owl Records.

Pre-orders are available in our mail-order shop.
