Vulnerable, thoughtful and introspective, JP Saxe knows how to write a song. Born and raised in Toronto, the Canadian musician has been creating uniquely sensitive tracks since 2017, but it was his 2020 collaboration with his girlfriend and tmrw favourite Julia Michaels that JP was catching everybody’s eye. The viral success of their collab ‘If The World Was Ending’ celebrated the power of love above all else, and was as vital a message then as it is now.
Dropping his first album Dangerous Levels of Introspection last June, JP Saxe delved deep into himself, reflecting on love, life, loss and everything in between. A raw, personal debut, the album shows both his delicate songwriting ability with his bold honesty, and celebrates just what it means to be a human living and loving in our modern world.
We ask the singer songwriter to take a look into the future for our FACING FORWARD series and catch up on all things JP Saxe…
Thank you, the song is about a moment where it kind of feels like everything is about to go to shit and you’re not really sure if there’s anything you can do about it anymore, so you’re just hoping for the best and praying for a soft landing.
I hope they find some sort of deepened relationship with a part of themselves that a song helped them get to a little bit more intimately.
I have no idea.. ha ha.. maybe some NFT transferred into our brain. I just hope people keep it real and keep playing instruments.
I think Lianne La Havas should be a thousand times more famous.
In no particular order….Beyonce, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, Adele… I don’t think any of these need an explanation why 🙂
Massey Hall, in Toronto, when I was a kid I used to sneak up the fire escape with my friends… so it will be a fun full circle moment when I get to play at that venue that I used to sit at as a 13-year-old and dream about playing it..
I think it’s too late for Holly Humberstone to be a hot take..but her anyway!
I want to travel a lot of South America.. in fact a lot of the world as I would like to compensate for the last two years so I’d like to visit as many places as possible.
Arenas would be fucking cool!
