His lyrics illicit every emotion you can muster as he paints pictures of loves lost, towns disbanded, fishermen killed by their trade and important moments of his own life. His voice is surprisingly sweet and soft-sounding, completely unexpected coming from his 6’4” frame.
He begins an instrumental on one of his five or six instruments and you realize that he is not just a singer or a songwriter. As his fingers fly, with speed and precision, you get pure joy and boundless energy; total spiritual abandon bordering in its execution on genius.
“He is one of the most important guitarists of his generation.”
– Chet Atkins
“Why the hell isn’t J.P. the most famous guitar player in the world?”
– Ashley MacIsaac
