Weekend Recall with JP Saxe

by Morgan Vickery

JP Saxe is the alternative/ R&B artist with deliberate and detailed music, magnetizing us into his intimate and emotional perspective. With trance-like synth beats and vocal layering, JP curates compositions that speak to life’s journey: relationships, communities, and past selves, all which contribute to our growth and self-evolution. Pushed to explore his musical creativity, Saxe attributes much to Janos Starker, his grandfather and one of the greats in 20th-century cellist history. Recently, the lyric obsessed singer/ songwriter from Toronto is rising as a prominent vocal hypnosis in the leaning R&B category. We caught up with Saxe in between tour shows [with Harry Hudson] to get a peak of a weekend in his life:
