by Jong Sl

“Paralyzed” has an ethereal indie feel; floating harmonies and melancholic guitar gives it a sound similar to Coldplays first album. Lyrically, it’s the struggle of the inner-self trying to escape the feeling of entrapment. In the last chorus, the listener is given hope as the song resolves.

Album Notes
Like many Korean households, Jong started his musical career in violin. Over a decade later, he actually ended up completing a bachelor's degree in classical music. A degree he realized he didn’t want in his third year. But he had no choice, either finish the degree in the US or go back to Korea. In that same year, Jong had an epiphany. He was already writing songs for others, so why not write for himself? Since then, he took up singing, an instrument he neglected for over 20 years of his life.
Growing up, there weren’t any musicians who are of his background that Jong could look up to. Even now, it’s true to this day. Having moved to the US at a young age, like many others like him, Jong lost his identity along the way. Under both western and eastern culture, he doesn’t feel truly connected to either. With those experiences, the lyrics are introspective and the music melancholic. Feeling like an outsider has defined his character and music.
Drawing influences from both popular and underground music, Jong SL is making his own genre. His songs are influenced by guitar playing from John Mayer and Mac Demarco, singing from Allen Stone and recent R&B, and melodies from early Coldplay. Jong describes his genre as Indie-Pop Alternative, but even that is a misnomer.
Since moving to Toronto a year ago, Jong has quickly been playing all over the city. Yonge and Dundas Sq, Nathan Phillips Sq, The Cameron House are to name a few. Recently Jong received the 1st prize winner of 2018 Trakscout Original Music Award on his latest track “Driving Away”. He is also a finalist in the Canadian singing competition The Shot in 2018.
Jong SL is a one man songwriter, composer, producer, and performer who plays with a band. He is currently based in Toronto, Canada.
