about

"There's a rawness – to the feelings, to the singing, to the sounds clashing. But first and foremost, this is music grounded in songcraft – timeless movements of tension and progression. . ."

lyrics

Hey
Feeling abashed
There's no need
There's a freedom
In the unknown
Feel it
It will pass
Now is a time for savouring

​Ingenue
Is curious
Acronyms
Make her delirious

​Ingenue
Considers winning
Pink lace
In games of spinning

​Ingenue
Let go
Of the hand
Of the Holy Ghost

​Seem sure
The new folks
But ingenue
It's all a hoax

​CHORUS

​Ingenue
Think you won't win
Think if you carry weight
That it's a sin

​Now you're closing up
Open up again
How am I to know
If you won't let me in

​Ingenue
I'm not right
But, if I may
Let me shine a light

​Think that my face
Reflects the truth?
Stop looking, my love
It's in you

CHORUS

about

Bonjay Toronto, Ontario

Dancehall-bred, but orchestrated like old soul.

Resplendent with emotive vocals inspired as much by Feist as by Yolanda Adams.

There’s a rawness to Bonjay’s sound: to the feelings, to the voice, to the sounds clashing.

It sounds like something new.
