JDH is the electronic solo music project of Jonny Hughes, which was popularized by his covers EP from earlier this year. The EP boasted covers of songs by OMD, Grandaddy, Sufjan Stevens, Fugazi and Grown-Ups. His EP reached a wide audience through it's coverage by Exclaim and its hype from popular music blog Bolachas.
Arms Legs Feet is a record that was born out of near-death experiences and trials. It is Jonny Hughes' second album, which he has spent the last four years perfecting.
To say the least, Jonny has had his share of ups and downs trying to finish this album. since the beginning stages of making this record, he has broken both wrists from a twelve foot fall, survived cancer, moved to the city, moved away from the city, got his drivers' license, got married, and more recently, had a baby.
Honesty has always been one thing jonny appreciates in music, and his sincere lyrics add an odd yet endearing element to his electronic-based music. His songs feel almost timeless. Sonically, the record is full of heavy synth-basses, dreamy shoegaze guitars and hopeful synth leads.
In the last four years, Jonny has reinvented himself as a composer, singer and songwriter. He has plans for touring in the next couple years, and maintains the same Goonies-never-say-die attitude that got him this far.
The album was recorded and mixed at Jonny’s house and with Jon Anderson at Buena Vista Audio, in Langley, BC, from 2005-2009
