Introducing JJ Shiplett.
Recently he was the recipient of Rawlco Radio’s 10k20 Grant Program in his hometown of Calgary, Alberta. Following the grant, he recorded his first full length album which was released April of 2012. Recorded at Five Acres Studios in Aldergrove, B.C. with the help of producer Ryan Mcallister (Dakona, Cowboys and Indians, Maverick Records), the album showcases heartfelt moments full of life experience, right alongside bursts of boisterous feel-good rock and roll.
In 2007, JJ released ‘Colours’. It was his first recording released to the publc. Titled for its diverse emotional journey, the album is an honest and expressive portrayal of an artist’s heart. Recorded in the basement of a Calgary church with the help of producer Adam Gill and Jason Graham (Barrage, Shane Yellowbird), the album was followed with shows all across Canada. JJ opened for Canadian artists such as Jeremy Fisher, Zaac Pick and The Matinee, as well as for international artists such as Thomas McCleary of The Commodores.
JJ Shiplett believes in creating and encouraging quality art in Canada; in entertaining and inspiring people across this great country.
