Jonny Dovercourt (Jonathan Bunce) has been participating in the independent music community in Toronto – as a musician, writer, editor, presenter, organizer and advocate – since the early 1990s. As guitarist, bassist or vocalist, Jonny has been a member of more than a dozen bands, including Danger Bay, Republic of Safety, Christiana, Secret Agent, Kid Sniper and A Tuesday Weld. He is currently playing with Matt Vocabulary and Evan Davies in the post-rock space-punk trio, Several Futures. Having worked as Listings Editor at Toronto’s Eye Weekly, in 1999 Jonny combined his experience in both the music scene and journalism to help co-found the Wavelength music series. Launched in early 2000, Wavelength is universally hailed as helping revitalize the once-stagnant Toronto music scene. Jonny currents acts as Artistic Director and one of the main programmers and organizers of Wavelength’s activities. Jonny has also acted as Artistic Director of The Music Gallery, a long-running Toronto concert space, and Operations & Development Manager at the Images Festival. He has also co-edited two volumes of Coach House Books’ acclaimed uTOpia anthology.
