In the Ojibway language, the word Zoongide’ewin means “bravery, courage, the Bear Spirit.” It’s no wonder then that Daniel Monkman adopted Zoon as his musical moniker. The Hamilton-based musician has spent the better part of his 28 years channelling that strength to overcome such adversities as racism, poverty, and addiction. Music saved Monkman’s life, and now he wants to share his story. His debut album, Bleached Wavves, will be out on June 19 on Paper Bag Records.
