23 year old JJ began making music at 16 whilst living on the Malvern Hills in the rural West Midlands. Pulling influences from all directions - from his collaborations with electronic producer Daktyl to the Irish folk tradition - his sound today has found a place within an elusive category of its own. Crafting work that is often simultaneously melancholic and defiant, his melodic and lyric driven songs deliver cutting edge production and beats with big hooks.
(Early for Feeling)
Only to steal a glimpse,
And the light’s exact on the smile you crack,
As you stare right back - is that a secret pact? Are you gonna stay true?
(Fumbling for reason)
Feeling you leaving,
‘There’s a promise meant in all that time we spent!
And if you came and went, independence-bent, will you ever come through on your way, on your way?
I said are you one that just comes along for the ride?
‘Cos this heart is such that it won’t let me be denied.
Are you one that will walk the street side by side?
Or are you one that just comes along for the ride?
