JonoJosh (aka JJ Gerber) has already made an impression in the music and musical theatre scene, and his latest single combines both of those passions. JonoJosh currently plays Gilbert in The Charlottetown Festival’s production of Anne of Green Gables—The MusicalTM.
During his free time, he performs with the band The Fly Crew that’s made up fellow musicians: Dan Minchom, Glo Campanelli, Jozef Teeuwson, Jordan Zagerman, Ali Wither, Vannessa Sears, Aisha Jarvis, and Ruth Altaye.
JonoJosh’s latest release “Waitin’” is a song about waiting for a beautiful redhead to take notice and was written shortly after he got the role of Gilbert. The associated lyric video encapsulates how a modern-day Gilbert may have felt upon first meeting Anne.
JonoJosh has years of experience as a dancer/choreographer with industry powerhouses such as Marianas Trench, Psy, Carly Rae Jepson, Kreesha Turner, and more. In 2016, also
released his debut EP Outside, which was about discovery and coming of age. CBC and
Kardinal Official called it “a master class of what R’n B should be.” The same year he went on to be a finalist in CBC’s Searchlight with the artist Andi and her song “Caffeine ft JonoJosh.” In 2017, JonoJosh and The Fly Crew released “Chance,” which stands alone as an art piece meant to inspire hope to its viewers.
