J.P. Mortier is a singer, song writer and artist from Montreal. His style and sounds lies somewhere between Nick Cave, David Bowie and Leonard Cohen backed by the sonic power of a Pink Floyd-Radiohead hybrid. After 5 albums and 4 Canadian tours, here is J.P.’s sixth album: a double album consisting of 24 songs clocking in at 2 hours and 19 minutes. On this album, he targets the totalitarian powers that be: governments, corporate power, religion, ideology, technology and other tools of destruction that want to rule our society. J.P. will be touring across Canada later in 2019.
