03 MARCH 2023 (TORONTO, ON) – Indie maverick JAWNY releases his debut album It’s Never Fair, Always True today via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada. The album will include previously released songs “fall in love,” true,” “wide-eyed,” “adios,” “strawberry chainsaw,” and “take it back,” featuring GRAMMY®- winning legend Beck, who contributed vocals and guitar. The album, full of ambitious arrangements and blistering rock moments, is a whimsical, wild rush of a debut that traces all the twists and turns of life and love in its purest moments. It’s Never Fair, Always True is available now at all digital retailers.


Praise for It’s Never Fair, Always True is rolling in with NME giving the album four stars stating, “The McCartney-esque piano tune ‘Fall In Love’ shows there’s more to Jawny than catchy alt-pop as he adds depth to his sound with a triumphant string section,” and Music Connection noting the album “closer “Selfish Hate” is Jawny’s most ambitious opus at eight minutes, a sad stoner’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.” “I’m old enough to feel old, but young enough to die alone…” These opening lines of “Everything” serve as a mission statement from a more sophisticated, mature singer.


To celebrate his debut album release JAWNY will head out on a North American  headlining tour with rising indie-pop artist Wallice supporting. Kicking off March 3rd in San Diego, the run of dates will include stops in Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and more, with many shows sold out or close to selling out.  A second show was recently added in New York City.

About JAWNY:

With over 1 billion streams globally, JAWNY has built his career by intuition, letting his music evolve naturally as he grows personally. Instead of chasing the high of past successes—including his 2019 Gold-certified and most recently Diamond-certified (AMPROFON) hit, “Honeypie” —he’s following his gut and tapping into a childlike wonder that’s wide-eyed and widescreen in vision. Born Jacob Sullenger in the Bay Area, and raised in Philadelphia, JAWNY first picked up a guitar at age 6 after watching his dad jam to the Grateful Dead, Pink Floyd, and Led Zeppelin. At 13, he began making beats with his brother, eventually landing placements with rappers on SoundCloud. In his early 20s, he began writing his own songs, and started to gain buzz with his 2018 debut EP under the name Johnny Utah, landing placements on critically acclaimed shows like the HBO series, High Maintenance. JAWNY followed that up with a handful of buzzworthy singles, including Honeypie, that landed on a number of tastemaker playlists and garnered millions of streams. In 2020, JAWNY signed to Interscope Records and soon released a pair of vibrant, critically acclaimed projects, For Abby and The Story of Hugo, which further showcased his sharp storytelling and sonic experimentation and put him front and center covering notable playlist covers around the world. Upon releasing The Story of Hugo, JAWNY headlined a US tour, selling out shows across the country, and was selected as one of Vevo DSCVR’s Artists To Watch 2022.  With all those career highs under his belt, JAWNY remained steadfastly in the moment and is looking forward to reaching a wider audience with the release of his debut album.
