Who is JP Hoe? Ask the 2.500 people who after seeing him open for Jann Arden on her Uncover Me Tour, rushed the merch booth to buy his EP, The Live Beta Project. Ask the hundreds of Winnipeggers who turn out for his tongue and cheek theme gigs, like the perennially sold out JP HOE HOE HOE Holiday Show. The six time Western Canadian Music Award nominated artist has a tremendous gift for writing songs would sound as good stripped down around a campfire as they would in a soft-seat theatre with a full orchestra.
"I defy anyone to see JP Hoe in concert and not become an immediate and steadfast fan. He is the real deal - talented, charming, charismatic - he writes songs that stick in your head as much for the enduring melodies as for his thoughtful lyrics - from witty pop songs to achingly evocative ballads - JP just never disappoints."
Heather Moore, Producer, National Arts Centre Prairie Scene
"JP Hoe offered a different pace with music that made the hairs stand on the back of the neck. He displayed consummate artistry with fluid melodies, spine-tingling tunes and delicious acoustic soul and Americana. Canada has produced a glut of folk musicians, all wishing to follow in the footsteps of such trailblazing legends as Neil Young and Gordon Lightfoot. Few can reach that benchmark, but JP Hoe's Saturday set came closer than most."
