Following a recent show, a new fan described Kalon Hart’s music as "Spiritual Americana" and the genre seemed apt. It's easy to hear the definite influence from the folk and singer-songwriting traditions, from rousing acoustic pop numbers recalling The Lumineers and Mumford & Sons, to haunting ambient guitar picking in the style of Gregory Alan Isakov and early-career Bon Iver. But there's definitely a unique additional element in play with Kalon Hart, a common lyrical thread in all his songs, and that's a desire to bring people back to their hearts and their spirits through emotional mastery and re-connection to the Earth.
Kalon Hart is the alter ego of Rob Teehan, formerly known as a JUNO-nominated Toronto composer and tuba player, alumnus of the Lemon Bucket Orkestra, The Boxcar Boys, and The Heavyweights Brass Band. These days he spends most of his time in Los Angeles writing music for film and TV and developing his new passion for songwriting, while maintaining close connections to his homeland of Canada.
