JP Maurice hosts a new open mic night at The Heatley featuring special guest and new singer songwriters working on their craft.
About JP: The seasoned Vancouver based musician, songwriter and producer knows the highs of his craft, but it’s in the lows where he finds his fire – taking the fuel of failed record deals, broken hearts, and the loss of loved ones and forging the pain into something beautifully optimistic.
After touring Canada, Europe, and then taking home 2nd place in the PEAK Performance Project radio contest in 2015, a loss in the family turned Maurice mostly inwards, where he focused on channeling his emotions into his art. Investing in his own studio allowed for late night collaborations, producing other artists, and creating endless song ideas. The result is the Girls EP, which sweeps from cinematic pop-noir info slinky neo-soul, all tied together with Maurice’s powerfully emotive vocals. It’s a modern sound that capture timeless sentiments – love, loss, and the twists and turns in between. 2018 Kicked off with JP’s national TV debut as a featured artist on CTV’s The Launch, where he performed “Shapeshifter” live in front of industry big-wigs and over 1 million Canadian viewers. The follow up to the Girls EP will be the aptly titled Boys LP, set for release in the spring of 2018.
