More About Bodhi: Bodhi Jones spent his early years with his mother and sister on Saltspring 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 Saltspring 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 12 000 copies 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: Already receiving airplay on 100.5 The Peak, CBC Radio One, Virgin, The Shore, Citr and CJSFU. He also performed live on CTV’s Canada Am and Global’s Morning Show during the 2010 Winter Olympics.

In April of 2010 he released a new full length album titled “Where Do We Go From Here?” Produced by Winston Hauschild (Hannah Georgas) and mixed by Shawn Cole (Bend Sinister, Yukon Blonde, and You Say Part! We Say Die!), this latest effort is a big step up sonically and truly showcases Bodhi’s heart, honesty, and song writing talents. He’s just completed his first western Canada tour and is planning a Cross-Canada tour this summer in support of his new album and up coming music Video release.
