The grandson of fabled cellist Janos Starker, JP Saxe is a singer/songwriter from Toronto who writes and performs a lyrically rich blend of minimalist alt. R&B, concentrating on hushed, complicated moments with the emotional intimacy of diary entries. His most recent release, Both Can Be True: Part 1, includes songs like “25 in Barcelona” and “Blurry” that showcase Saxe’s soulful vulnerability. It’s that very quality to his music that has earned it millions of streams on Spotify and placement in everything from a worldwide Adidas campaign to a spot on the soundtrack to Fifty Shades Freed.
