In each of his songs, Toronto-bred singer/songwriter JP Saxe hones in on the small moments to spark a quietly deepening shift in emotion.
With his latest single "Anybody Else," Saxe shows us his carnal side with sensual lyrics and a kaleidoscope of blurry synth lines and cascading guitar tones. Prior to this, his first single "Changed" debuted his soulful vocals with sparse beats and luminous piano work. The song channels both anger and affection in its gently devastating lyrics.
The LA-based Saxe shapes his R&B-leaning sound with elegant musicality and purposeful inventiveness. His forthcoming debut EP is both formally defiant and meticulously composed. Whether he’s reflecting on unbearable desperation, the chaos of a tempestuous romance (“Screaming to Myself”), or the lovely thrill of surrender to longing (“The Few Things”), each track embodies a deliberate vulnerability.
