John started playing the drums when he was 10 years old. His thoughtful and kind cousin lent him a flashy blue sparkle Ludwig drum set at which time John played endlessly learning
many rock songs from his small collection of 45's (remember those).

John also performed with various drum and bugle corps on the snare drum, spending his last few years with the Dutch Boy Drum and Bugle Corps based out of Kitchener, ON. During this time, John worked on his drum set skills while performing with various rock and stage bands.

John has many years of experience performing with various rock, progressive rock, blues, country and professional tribute bands.

For as long as she could speak, Bonn knew her life would revolve around music. Though her plight began with classical/opera training, a thirst for variety soon took hold.

She entered into the world of EDM with "Dreaming", her song that garnered millions of spins and a #1 hit for 6 straight weeks in the European radio circuit. The buzz from this tune supported a 4-week independent tour across Hungary and Serbia.

In 2017, Bonnie's desire to explore new genres took her on a path down to Miami, FL - to develop the Country/Rock alias Bonn E Maiy. Hyper-focused at honing her craft, she released two independent LPs, toured across the USA, performed with Johnny Depp & Joe Perry, and was endorsed by Grace Slick and the estates of Janis Joplin and The Doors.

After 4 straight years away from home & family, Bonnie returned to her native land in 2021 with the desire to be part of a collaborative musical project - one where every member had a passion for music above all else. This is where Heart + Soul came together. The rest is yet to be written.

Darrens "Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show moment" came when he stumbled into Detroit rock city. It was soon after running with the devil and that led him to his weapon choice, the Guitar. From the beginning of his teenage years, he began his travels along the warn paths of nickel alloy beat down by his heroes like Jimmy page, Eddie Van Halen, Randy Rhoads and so many more. Anyone who travelled a similar path knows it to be a lifelong obsession. That obsession has evolved to include songwriting, recording as well as performing live music. All of which he's been doing for the last thirty years. Where do we go? Where do we go? Where do we go from here?
