By Lydia Peterson, Jan 5 2020 05:11PM
Born in Monroe, Louisiana on June 29th 1991. To Parents Shetakia Williams and Jeffry Perry Sr. Separated but still close. His mother remarried and moved her family to Dallas, Texas. The oldest of three siblings. JP began songwriting and composing music by the age of 13. He first used it as a means to cope and heal from the sudden death of his father on January 5th, 2004. The Self identified underdog, and Somewhat of an introvert. His unique style is comprised of heavy hard hitting lyrics, coupled with soothing melodies that are meant to capture the very essence of his craft. Every song; every verse is specifically designed and arranged to leave the listener with a sense of fullness, whilst also leaving a piece of himself in each vocal inflection. The biggest musical influences in his life have by far been from J. Cole, Jimi Hendrix, Roy L, Led Zepplin, Lil Wayne, the black keys. As well as deep ties to southern blues, R&B, and alternative rock. That blend of diversity, is what pushes him to be as versatile and multifaceted as an Artist he could be. No gimmicks, no props, Just Music.
