JP Corwyn crafts a distinct blend of rock, drawing from fists-up, pureblood rock and roll, pop, alternative and contemporary flavors, wowing listeners with a sound that is both distinct and accessible. Songwriting is clearly a priority with Corwyn and performances never fail to deliver the requisite energy.
Corwyn works hard to imbue his songwriting with emotional punch, delivering catchy tunes that resonate within peopleâ€™s minds and linger long after the show stops. â€œYou shouldn’t ever appologize for how you feel. What you do, maybe, but never how you really feel.â€ For JP Corwyn, the emotional content of his songs are merely the avatar a representative face that stands for all that is human in the songwriters and the listeners.
Corwynâ€™s immeasurable passion for music stems back to his childhood. Music is a lifetime love for these musicians and the listener can readily detect this passion in the strains of the songs. â€œSomeone once told me that I ‘bleed’ when I sing. Other people have described some sort of light around me when I’m up there. Whatever it is, people feel it when I sing, and that’s a gift I’ll never be greatful enough for.”, Corwyn goes on to say, highlighting musicâ€™s ability to bring people together. Music also spans time and space, a quality noted by Corwyn: â€œMusic can take you to any time and place & Thatâ€™s a power beyond anything else manâ€™s ever created. A bit lofty, but there it is.â€
What makes a song good? “It has to be something that you feel, something that moves you. When music gets in your head, not just because it’s catchy, but because you ‘feel’ something, and everytime it rolls around in your head, you feel that something again… ‘that’ is what makes a song’good’.” Writing songs with which people can relate requires artists to be perceptive. One has to look everywhere. Says Corwyn, â€œIâ€™m inspired by pretty much everything around me.â€ An artist must also be ready to respond to inspiration at a momentâ€™s notice; one must stay alert. According to Corwyn, â€œThe word â€˜theâ€™ if said just right in a given sentence can send my mind into writing mode. But I think the thing that inspires me the most is the crowd.â€ And we circle back again to unity via music. Corwyn and Co. hold the crowd in high esteem and seek always to affect the listener with strong music.
â€œWith the first full-length album in the bag, recorded with multi-platinum winner Michael Seifert, it’s time to tour, and then hit the studio again.â€ Corwyn says. “There’s still the hunt for a home on a label, but label or not, the music keeps comming.” The CD â€œIn Plain Sightâ€ will reveal to all the talent that ripples through this band.
