JP SAXE: Changed
Written by: Morgan Young
JP Saxe just kicked off his career as a solo artist with the release of his new single “Changed.”
JP has been playing professionally since he was a teen and primarily wrote for other artists. He is well known for his work with Foxes and Babyface. He also wrote with Jacob Banks on “Chainsmoking,” a favorite of mine.
While he will continue to write with others, this Toronto native has blown us away with “Changed,” a smooth, r&b influenced track inspired by:
“a moment where I caught myself thinking about someone I thought I was done thinking about. It was abnormally cold in LA that night, and something about my hands being freezing sent me right back to the memories of being with this person years ago in Toronto. It got me thinking about how far I’ve come since her, but also how she still must have a little part of me, despite my not wanting to believe it. The song was my way of exploring the different elements of that feeling — the resentment, the memory of the affection, and ultimately, the moving on.”
The subtle instrumentation in the track allows JP’s soothing voice to shine. Yet, there is a wonderful bit of keys that highlights the last verse/chorus and compliments the somber feel of the song. We Found New Music is absolutely looking forward to the rest of the upcoming EP.
