How could you be so blind? You haven’t heard of JP Corwyn? You haven’t seen him live? You haven’t heard his music?
How embarrassing for you. Really, though. It’s ok. You’re in the right place. For JP, the rationale for the blind jokes is, well, reasonable. Born with a degenerative condition, he has been legally blind since birth, with the shades pulling ever tighter throughout his as-yet-brief-but-potent life. This makes his genre tag of Blind Indie Rock make more sense. Otherwise, he’d just be sort of pretentious and snarky, but not in the fun depraved sit-com way. Corwyn’s story-focused, vocal-driven indie rock style is infectious, reminiscent of Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Glen Phillips co-writing songs with Angie Aparo that get snatched by Adam Levine of Maroon 5, with occasional stomps into Creed and Pearl Jam-esque electric anthem territory. On vocals and acoustic guitar, Corwyn has helmed an EP and two full-length albums thus far in his career: Working with the likes of Multi-platinum Producer Michael and Gold-winning engineer and producer David Pezza.. With a planned release for early 2018; Corwyn's next effort sees him sharing the soundscape with Puddle of Mudd's legendary lead guitarist: Paul Phillips.
He has taken a raw, and unplugged show from Tampa, up the east coast to New York, and back again, but continues to call Tampa, home, and Tampa-area fans, his favorites.
Yep, he’s blind. But he’s hardly unaware. So why should you be?
