I love the feeling of “discovering” a new old song and connecting with it immediately. Case in point, JP Cooper’s “In The Silence”. He sounds so bluesy and soulful, reminiscent of one Mr. James Bay. Face-wise, aside from the obvious Bob Marley similarities, he could also pass for Sergio Ramos’ brother.

Okay wait a minute. What if, like James Bay, JP Cooper comes to the Philippines as part of the In The Mix festival? How amazing would that be?!? This time, I’ll be ready. Excuse me while I listen to JP Cooper’s discography.

In the meantime, enjoy this raw and honest rendition of “In The Silence.”
