Canadian singer and songwriter JP Hoe emerges from the pandemic with a sixth studio offering entitled "Botanicals." As a self-produced labor of love, his new album echoes the achievements of jack-of-all-trade predecessors like Sufjan Stevens and Hawksley Workman. As JP balances his duties as attentive father, husband, and friend against the call of the road as a traveling performer, the outcome is a heartfelt collection of songs that provides testament to his creative soul and unique artistic signature.
"Say What You Want To Say" is a song that celebrates the end of an era, and the anticipation of exciting new things to come. The silver lining of the past two years for JP has been a passionate reminder to carry the adventure forward; throwing everything you have at it and leaving nothing to regret. With a lively bass line and an acoustic piano at the front of this mix, JP explores the lifelong thirst for new challenges and the power that lies in each of us to constantly reinvent the aspects of life that inspire us and make us whole. "Say What You Want To Say" reveals the inner monologue of a person that is both still searching and not ashamed to laugh at his failures along the way.
