JP’s songs are built on his values - positivity, empathy and soul – and 80 + of them have been whittled down to 13 for his debut album, Raised Under Grey Skies, which has been inspired by his life and times. Good Friend, for example, draws on the times when he was first signed and was “uprooted” away from family and his son. “I think labels should have a psychologist to hand,” he chuckles. “It sounds like first world problems but it’s hard, and you really find out who your friends are.”
Raised Under Grey Skies is available now.
