“JP Corwyn isn’t quite “Stevie Wonder blind”, or “Ronnie Milsap blind”. But then, those icons would have made music regardless of what their eyes were capable of. Maybe they did it a little better than those who can see; maybe their intuition is stronger and their sense of the click-click-clicking of the world around them is more keen. JP Corwyn makes excellent music, of which you should really be aware, without his eyes, and with his hands, and with his mouth, and with his mind, and his hips, and his spine, and his legs and fingers and toes and nerves.”

JP Corwyn Profile PhotoLately I’ve found myself more discerning and much more critical of the submissions to Audio Gumshoe. I wasn’t sure why, but I think it was because I was looking for something with a bit more “edge”; maybe something with more grit or punch. I needed to kick it up a bit.

As I delved into the many songs that had arrived in my drop box I kept finding music that didn’t satisfy this quest. Then, as I looked at the many suggestions provided by Sara and Christine at Ariel Publicity, I found it. I found the music of JP Corwyn.

From his site:

“How could you be so blind? You haven’t heard of JP Corwyn? You haven’t seen him live? You haven’t heard his music? How embarrassing for you. Really, though. It’s ok. You’re in the right place. For JP, the rationale for the blind jokes is, well, reasonable. He is legally blind. Born with a degenerative condition, he has been legally blind since birth, with the shades pulling ever tighter throughout his as-yet-brief-but-potent life. This makes his genre tag of Blind Indie Rock make more sense. Otherwise, he’d just be sort of pretentious and snarky, but not in the fun depraved sit-com way. Corwyn’s vocal-driven indie rock style is infectious, reminiscent of Toad the Wet Sprocket’s Glen Phillips co-writing songs with Angie Aparo that get snatched by Adam Levine of Maroon 5, with occasional stomps into Creed and Pearl Jam-esque electric anthem territory.”

Album Cover Image for In Plain SightIt is apparent that JP has a great sense of humor — or at least acceptance of a life that could have taken him down other roads. Through it all, though, he has produced an EP and two full albums, including “In Plain Sight“. The latest, The White Cane Conspiracy” will be released in January 2011. Working with multi-platinum producer Michael Seifert, he has grounded his sound more firmly on the acoustic side of indie rock. It has, as mentioned on his profile, “affirmed the great maturity of [his] songwriting.”

I think you’ll dig the sounds of JP Corwyn. Give the show a listen, sample the four tracks featured, then find yourself at any of the links below to purchase more of his music. Show the love and I’m sure that JP will continue to give us more great tracks.
