FRESH: ‘One Day’ – JPson

South African singer JPson releases “One Day”.

by Christopher Smith

Shaped by the two oceans on the shores of South Africa, JPson has ridden the wave of life to Europe and defined a musical style that can best be described as Fresh Folk. Music that let’s you open up to the groove of the moment, whilst forgetting the troubles of daily life.

His EP “Coming Home” is the first official release of his musical career and expresses his belief: “Home Is where your heart is”. Coming from Swiss and South African background, JPson left South Africa right after school to go discover his European roots. What seemed like a 10-month joy trip away from home turned into a 10-year journey around Europe, which JP refers to as his University of life. Through his travels he realized on a regular basis how he would constantly find peace within musical melodies. Even though the life of a wary traveler can sometimes be extremely tiring, he would often gather warmth and support from the music he listened to and find guidance in the music he created.

“One Day” was inspired by the feeling of doing what we love most. Sometimes we feel lost in the struggles of everyday life and therefore it becomes easy to forget the basic aspects of life that make us happy, such as the sports and hobbies’ that we are passionate about and the people that mean the most to us in our lives. For JPson this is, next to music of course, Surfing. This is also how he got to know Adam Sims (World Champion Windsurfer) and his girlfriend Alina Shalin (River Surfer / Kite-Surfer & Instagram influencer) better, the two responsible for the stunning music video for this song. After surfing the river wave together in Munich, Adam decided to film and edit a short travel vlog of the couple’s personal journey around the world chasing their favorite elements: Wind, Waves and Sun. The final touch for “One Day” comes from JPson’s friend, and fellow South-African, Sarah Anne Blake, who’s lended her voice for the beautiful harmonies.

Having taught himself to play the guitar on the beaches of Cape Town, South Africa, JPson spent his youth surfing the Atlantic Ocean and exploring vast musical territory, yielding his very own sunbaked infusion of Folk & Roots music. Through his lyrics JPson shares the essence of life that drives him around the world and the lessons he learns whilst traveling. Not only is his music incredibly uplifting but his rhythms and beats will get you grooving in a festive and unifying spirit, bound to inspire reflection and new connection.

Guidance that taught him how to open up, to be happy and live life to the fullest as it is a wonderful gift that should be cherished with every single heartbeat. After spending quite some time on the road, playing shows in Europe, Africa and North-America he is back with new tracks and a new EP that is set to be released in July of this year.
