JPson is a really cool dude but not only that he’s also a very talented musician from South Africa. On Wednesday Night we got to enjoy a summery set in the midst of winter including his new music.
But before the main act came on stage we got to enjoy a short set by the Scottish musician Argyle Singh. What I love about these intimate shows is that we get to see the artist up close. If he’s joking or really feeling the song either way the emotions are right there and that’s what music makes so special. So Argyle had both! Depressing songs sung by a wow voice and jokes in between… That’s how you do it. Are you watching Dermot Kennedy? So if you haven’t heard of Argyle Singh, go check him out!
Just a few minutes later JPson took the stage with his drums player and a little while later they were joined by a bass player. I was super happy sitting on a pillow on the floor, chillin’ with my good friend from Loads of Music and listening to a great musician play various songs. Want to see some videos?

I already mentioned I love when artists tell stories to their song and JP deffo did that. Dedicating songs to his Mom, to various people in the room and to his support act Argyle was just the beginning. He sang a song about boys not needing drinks to speak to a girl. Having lived here he put this girl/boy story in Gräbli bar. A bar that is literally open 24/7 and you can imagine…
As a South African musician he is of course supporting his fellow countryman Matthew Mole with a cover. Unfortunately I missed out on this guy’s gig last year so thank you JPson for giving me a little sneak peek into his music. I will deffo try to catch his next show.
JPson embraced his Swiss side with one of his last songs where he actually sang in German. It was really very cute and deffo a highlight of the evening. And of course he sang his newest song “Hope for change” and he dedicated it to all the people who are in need of a change because they’re stuck in rut. It totally resonated with us so it was even more special to me. The easy breezy vibe reached its peek when he mixed Jason Mraz’ “I’m yours” into his song. What a lovely way to finish a brilliant evening!
