Jonny P is a soul artist and fashion designer born in New York City, now living in Nashville, TN. With a sound reminiscent of the greats of Motown, Jonny is poised to carve his modern soul mark in the landscape of R&B. His vocals are nothing but refreshing and his style is inspiring to many that crave true artistry. In his four years in Nashville he released ‘Right to You,’ a six-track EP and is currently working on new music and projects set to release in 2017.
Glide is proud to premiere, “It’s Our Time,” (below) a convincingly inspirational anthem and the title track of Jonny P’s forthcoming 5-song EP, which will be released April 21 on Big Picnic Records. Combining the soulful essence of Leon Bridges and the charming pop of yesterday’s honest hit-makers, Jonny P has made a resounding “in the pocket” statement.
“It’s our time is a song I’m extremely excited to release. It carries a message of hope that I think we all need. We hold the power of change in our hands,” says Jonny P about the track. During the recent political unrest and protests, “It’s Our Time,” couldn’t be more poignant.
The EP was self-produced by Jonny P along with his guitarist, Goffrey Moore, and was mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele, Frank Ocean, Jamie XX, Amy Winehouse, Mark Ronson) and features James Gadson (Quincy Jones, Paul McCartney, Herbie Hancock, Beck, BB King, Jamie Lidell) on drums.
Jonny P was born and raised in the Bronx and now calls Nashville home. In addition to music, he recently wrapped his first acting role in the upcoming film by director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal (who won Oscars for The Hurt Locker), a fictionalized chronicle of the Detroit riots of 1967.
