Maybe you have noticed a rising amount of today’s emerging artists have come through via a background of working within the music industry. It does appear to be a trend which is on the increase and more to the point associated with songwriters who go on to embark on solo careers. Just look at Wrabel and Julia Michaels as recent prime examples of coming up this way. It brings with it a greater chance of longevity, in the long run, with better cross over possibilities for our future rising stars to continue to grow.
Toronto bred, Los Angeles based singer/songwriter JP Saxe is another emerging artist who has first found his footing as a songwriter. Applying his craft to penning songs for Foxes, Snoh Aalegra and others. What you find with songwriters though, there is always that one song they cannot give to anyone else. And from this, the catalyst of branching out on their own begins in earnest.
JP Saxe’s debut “Changed” comes from a personal place. It is an emotive song which documents a reflective look back at the break up of a relationship. Sometimes no matter how much you might think you have closure, there is always the likelihood that revisiting a place or even a smell of perfume can trigger feelings that you thought were gone. “Changed” was written about one of JP’s former partners, so giving this one away to anyone else becomes unthinkable.
As we share with you the “Changed” video premiere on EQ Music today, we can see JP quietly recollecting feelings and memories as his soul stirring smokey vocal, softly laments. It maybe the beginning for JP Saxe but with a debut EP on its way. He is coming up through the ranks, as an intelligently engaging new talent to note with glowing artistic integrity fueling his goals
