‘The Few Things’ is a love song with a difference. The lyrics are inviting the listener in for a conversation. The unique background music and the music video all add to the song’s beauty. JP’s vocals are showcased throughout the song in so many ways.
Starring actor Anthony Ramos (Hamilton, She’s Gotta Have It, White Girl) and actress Dina Shihabi (Jack Ryan, Amira & Sam), the visuals were co-directed by JP Saxe himself and Dina. “The Few Things” has already received extensive support across Spotify with featuring on the platform’s New Music Friday, New Music Friday Canada, New Music Friday Creatediggers and Warm Hearts Feel Good playlists.
Handpicked and championed by Spotify as one of their favorite new artists and ‘ones to watch’ of 2017, 24 year old singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JP Saxe draws creative influence from his grandfather, Janos Starker, a Hungarian-born Holocaust survivor turned GRAMMY award-winning Cellist/solo performer. The Los Angeles based (by way of Toronto) artist began honing his craft at Babyface’s studio. Preceding the release of his brand new single “The Few Things”, Saxe shared his debut single “Changed” (Produced by Ryan Marrone: Nicki Minaj, M83, Chris Brown) and recent single “Anybody Else”. His music has already garnered over 4.5 Million streams and made appearances in Spotify’s Global 50 Charts. Additionally, JP Saxe has also lent his songwriting talents to the likes of Jacob Banks, BJ The Chicago Kid, Foxes, and Snoh Aalegra and worked with Cool & Dre, Robin Hannibal, Two Inch Punch, Louis the Child and Nineteen85 among many others.
Here’s a quote from JP on “The Few Things”:
“This is the most honest I’ve ever been in a love song. It comes directly from a conversation and the video is that conversation. It’s the first video I’ve directed (along with Dina Shihabi) and it is so biographical it made the process of creating it, at points, kind of uncomfortable..but if it’s not real what’s the point right? Even if it’s a little too real sometimes.”
