Vancouver musician/producer JP Maurice is starting 2017 off on the right foot with the upcoming release of his EP Girls, out on January 13. To celebrate the new EP, a release party will be held at the The Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver on January 14.
Following a tour across Canada and Europe and coming in 2nd on the PEAK Performance Project in 2015, Maurice suffered a loss in the family which in turn had him focus on channeling his emotions into art. After purchasing his own studio, Maurice began to produce other artists and worked to create a long list of song ideas. The end result of this is his upcoming EP Girls which holds onto a more modern sound that incorporates timeless sentiments such as love, loss and the twists and turns in between.

Born and raised in MTL, I spent most of my teens and early 20’s working in the music industry. I made the permanent move to Toronto in 2013 where I joined the team at the Canadian Independent Music Association as the Music Export Assistant. I spend my days working with and promoting incredible indie Canadian artists and companies across the world.
Music journalism and photography have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, as I jumped on board Confront Magazine a few years after it formed and ran it as the Editor-in-Chief for 7 years, right up until its recent closure.
I love to spend my spare time running to and from concerts, cheering on my hockey team (Go Habs!) and getting lost in nature whenever I can.
