We have the pleasure in bringing you the UK video premiere of Beautifully Crazy, the opening track from the JP Hoe’s new 2015 album Hideaway. It was directed by Nathan Boey, and produced with the support of Manitoba Film and Music. Watch it below as JP cycles through a busy street where life gently unfolds in slow-motion.
Trying something new is always difficult, especially if you couple that with acknowledging your past mistakes – showcasing them and eventually owning them. JP Hoe has done all of that with his new record ‘Hideaway’ it’s personal, raw and completely uplifting. Of the album, the six time Western Canadian Music Award nominated Hoe comments, “I loved making this record, from the song-writing to the final master. Some of these songs have such a profound meaning to me, I can still get lost in them when played live. I sincerely hope they connect with people as much as they were intended to.”
Recorded in his hometown of Winnipeg ’Hideaway’ was produced by Dana Matyas (Imaginary Cities), mastered by João Carvalho (City & Colour, Serena Ryder, Sloan) and features Andy Stochanksy as co-writer on four tracks – including the first single ‘Beautifully Crazy. The record follows Hoe’s highly praised ‘Mannequin’, which was released in 2012 – and it expands on the talent that was already highlighted in his past work. His gift for crafting songs is exceptional and his generous, spacious voice is all encompassing and entirely engrossing. He has the enviable skill of sounding as good stripped down around a campfire as he does in a soft-seat theatre with a full orchestra. Hoe has spent hundreds of days on the road, playing gigs all over the world – and the constant consistent is how he connects with audiences via his down-to-earth unpretentious charm.
JP Hoe will be heading to the UK on October for a small UK tour. He will be performing at The Old Queens Head in Islington on October 7th.
