Though it started out as an acoustic solo project, NORTHBOUND quickly evolved to its current hybrid state between acoustic and full band. This dynamic allows Fraser the flexibility to be the primary songwriter, as well as play shows as a solo act if touring bandmates Cody Badgley, Paul Cherewick, and Kevin Lopez are unable to join him. While recording, Jonathon is always accompanied by longtime friend John Looze as a studio guitarist.
Jonathon Fraser, also known as NORTHBOUND, comes from a different world than most of his peers. After years of DIY touring in the punk and hardcore scenes, Fraser has a very hands-on approach to everything he does, and this has allowed him to be impressively prolific since he began releasing music under the NORTHBOUND moniker in 2012.
