With his raw emotion and true to life lyrics, JJ Draper is the artist you will not want to miss this year (as soon as we can safely attend gigs again). Having already opened for Rhye at London’s KOKO and delivering some beautiful intimate gigs with his previous EP ‘Silhouettes’, JJ should be on your ‘gigs to attend after lockdown’ bucket list with his new EP ‘The Theft & The Flight’
Drawing inspiration from great songwriters and innovators such as Big Thief, Radiohead, Wilco, Bon Iver and Sufjan Stevens, JJ’s ambitious work is soon to be released with arrangements already made to be performed in front of audiences in a powerful and compelling live show. Expect moments of vulnerability punctuated with defiance and raw emotion as JJ weaves songs of real beauty and influences collide. Searingly honest lyrics hit home with JJ’s voice ably switching between registers, rinsing every drop of emotion from the material.
I don’t know about you but we are excited for this! To find out more about any potential gigs or to just listen to JJ play live on Instagram and Facebook as we power on through the next few weeks of lockdown, head to the links below…
