Born in Cardiff, Wales JP has funneled his deep love of his home, family and the loss of his father into his first solo endeavor.  The palpable sense of longing is conveyed in a both contemplative and effusive manner over the course of thirteen evocative compositions.  Says JP "I feel so proud to release my first solo record in honour of my father Jack. Making the album has been an up and down journey mixed with the madness, sadness and the good times.  An experience I'll never forget and shall cherish forever."
