JP is poised to release his third album, the details for which are incoming but suffice to say it’s the sound of an artist developing, stretching and reaching, both inwards and outwards. He has put in the work, reached the milestones and done himself proud. “And I’m only just getting started,” he promises.

"I’m so so excited to have been asked to join Gregory Porter on a few of his outdoor UK performances this summer. My wife and I have been huge fans for a long while now so it’s an honour to be invited to perform with such an amazing artist. These shows are in such beautiful settings, what a way to spend a summer evening. I’m very grateful for opportunities like this. I’ll look forward to seeing you all there.”
