The Joynt is:

Peter Joynt – an MC, producer, and public speaker from Ottawa, Canada. The Joynt has been rhyming for over a decade. He is known for a distinctively strong style and energetic live show. One intriguing fact about Peter is that he stutters quite noticeably in conversation, yet it disappears when he performs. It’s one of the many interesting characteristics that sets him apart as an artist and performer.

The Joynt made waves in November 2011, when he released the single Capcity – a love song about Ottawa. The video went viral and landed Peter on the front page of the Ottawa Citizen. The news story was broadcast nationwide on radio and television, and brought considerable attention to the Joynt’s music. He has since worked on projects for organizations like the Ottawa Senators, RogersTV and Ottawa Tourism. He has also performed for distinguished individuals such as the Governor General of Canada.

Peter graduated from Carleton University in 2004 with an arts degree in Economics. He currently works in communications for the IT company, Innovapost, and devotes his spare time to writing music and making videos. Peter is also involved in the community. He speaks regularly to various organizations and to kids at local schools about rapping, stuttering, bullying, and resiliency. He tours as a member of the #NoMoreBullies Tour and through his solo speaking engagements. To book Peter for a speaking engagement, please contact email@thejoynt.ca
