Regarding “When You Think Of Me,” Saxe commented, “I was sitting at a piano alone and thinking of a somewhat pervasive idea among young people. In songwriting, we tend to look at love in a binary way. It’s either like, ‘We’re together, and I’m obsessed with you,’ or it’s like, ‘We’re not together, and I hate you.’ I don’t subscribe to the notion that for love to be valid, it needs to be endless. I believe if something beautiful ends, it’s still beautiful. At the core of the song is my belief that love can be over and real at the same time. Love doesn’t need to be endless to be important, meaningful, and sincere.”
Building on the back of his breakout 2021 album Dangerous Levels of Introspection, JP continues to make waves this year with sold out performances, including tour dates with Alicia Keys and Lewis Capaldi, as well as the release of Dangerous Levels of Introspection (Stripped) in early 2022.
JP Saxe writes songs to discover and fathom the depths of his own personality. It’s why he doesn’t hold back or pull any punches. It’s why he speaks so candidly about life, loss, and love. It’s why he’s consistently penned the kinds of lyrics worthy of a tattoo. It’s why he’s quietly emerged as a multi-platinum GRAMMY® nominated phenomenon whose voice can be felt across pop music.
After dedicating his life to musicl, the Toronto-born and Los Angeles-based singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist captivated audiences everywhere with “If The World Was Ending” [feat.
