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.

Though it started out as an acoustic project, NORTHBOUND quickly evolved to its current hybrid state between a solo project and full band. This dynamic allows Fraser the flexibility to be the primary songwriter, in addition to touring solo or with a full band.
