My Mission Is To Home The Homeless :D
Bodhi Jones spent his early years with his mother and sister on Salt Spring Island. He affectionately refers to it as a “1980′s hippie paradise” and says spending his childhood there was an “amazingly magical experience.” Shortly after his tenth birthday, he and his mom moved from Salt Spring to Vancouver in search of greater opportunity. During this time Bodhi felt overwhelmed by the big city and became very isolated. He was often sick and spent a lot of time home alone… It was during these pre-teen years that he truly discovered his passion for music.
Over the past 6 years, Bodhi has recorded 5 EP’s and 3 full length albums, selling over 13,000 copis while performing on the streets of downtown Vancouver. in 2009 Bodhi was selected as Virgin Radio’s “BC Artist of the Month,” voted into The Peak Performance Project’s top 20, and named Vancouver’s best busker by the Georgia Straight. 2010 has brought even more exposure his way: Earning a second consecutive selection in The Peak Performance Project’s top 20 and placing 3rd in Red Robinson’s annual Talent Show Down. He’s also receiving airplay on 100.5 The Peak, CBC Radio One, CBC Radio 3, Virgin, The Shore, CITR, CJSF, with live performances and interviews on Shaw Cable’s Urban Rush, CTV’s Canada AM, Global’s Morning Show and a variety of CBC radio programs.
In September of 2010 Bodhi released a new full length album titled “Where Does The Time Go?” Produced by Winston Hauschild (Hannah Georgas) and mixed by Shawn Cole (Bend Sinister, Yukon Blonde, and You Say Party!), this latest effort is a big step up sonically and brings to light Bodhi’s heart, honesty, and song writing ability.
He’s just completed his 2nd Western Canadian tour and will be going all the way across Canada this March in support of his new album and upcoming music video release.
