JAYPEE-JAYPAR fait du Blues, mais pas que. Il ne se cantonne pas aux 2 mesures du delta du Mississippi, et n'hésite pas à teinter ses compositions d'influences aussi variées que ses goûts musicaux : Il y a tantôt l' énergie du Metal et du Rock,comme une évidence quant à son passé musical, mais aussi des touches mélancoliques Folk avec une fraîcheur dépoussiérant les standards du genre. Ses textes livrent ses états d'âme, sans prétention.
Il chante la joie, la peine, la haine, l'amour, la mort, La vie quoi, tout simplement.
JAYPEE-JAYPAR, or the story of a Pictavian guy exiled in Lyon's lands. That's the story of a son of Metal who, when he left his area in 2014 decided to trade his loud Gibsons for the sweet natural sound of acoustic guitars.
Then he started a work of introspection, a new way to approach music, as a one man band,resulting the release of 2 DIY albums in 2015 and 2016 ("On my Way" and "Sinner").
The identity of the artist guets refinded by the years to come to an acoustic raw blues rock folk, with deep and rough vocals somewhere between Tom Waits and Leonard Cohen.
From opened stages to home shows, he built his style at the same rythm than his will to live completly by his music. So outcomes the recording of “Meet me again” at the end of the year 2018, released at te end of 2019 by his own label GREY CAT RECORDS.
That’s obvious: JAYPEE-JAYPAR plays blues, but not only. He doesn’t confines to the 12 bars of the Mississipy Delta, and doesn’t waver to taint his compositions with influences as varied as his own musical tastes : there’s sometimes the Metal and Rock energy obviously dued to his past, but as well wistful folk touches with a new wind blowing the standards.His lyrics relate his mood, without any pretention. He sings joy, pain, love hate, death… simply life.
