Blues Guitar Virtuoso JP Cervoni

“JP is the only player after Jimi that kicked my ass!!” -- The Legendary Buddy Miles

The first solo album from this hot indie guitarist is for those people who love the blues rock scene, balancing old-school twelve-bar material with a more modern flare. Simply put, JP Cervoni is an intense and blistering guitar player. His style is broad in scope, nailing the fast pace Texas style yet incorporating skillfully controlled low down blues as well. In addition, he can employ at will some smooth laid back L.A. rock fusion too. Each song is a ride through blues rock history.

“JP is one of the baddest cats I know...his playing shows a lot of fire and feeling - that's the Italian showing through. He has a bluesy undertone to his style that I like allot..." – Michael Thompson

JP Cervoni has the ability to grab your attention and hold it within the palm of his hand. His captivating phrasing and endless blues riffs shows just how free he is in expressing his heartfelt blues rock music. The music just pours out of him. The seasoned guitarist can play with such fire one moment, and then turn around, and play with such subtleness the next. The guitarist versatile work continues to embody a mixture of white and black roots music like rock, blues, and soul. JP Cervoni brings them all together for a sound that has been all his own for nearly 25 years.

"JP, the CD sounds great! Excellent job on the production and mixing. You're playing great these always! Thanks for the opportunity to play some blues....the music of my people! All the best" -- Carl Verheyen


J.P. was born in Ceprano, Italy, a peaceful town in the Ciociaria region that stretches out amongst the green rolling countryside of the historic province. He grew up in a musical family that always encouraged JP to further his musical interest. At the age of 12, JP started his musical career playing keyboards for a top 40 band. At age 15, after seeing an English band playing Led Zeppelin, it was then he switched to the electric guitar and formed his own rock band called TRIM. The young man taught himself to play the guitar by listening to LPs by his favorite bands like Free, Zeppelin, Hendrix, Cream and the Beatles.

At 18, after high school, the youthful and eager musician moved to Toronto, Canada where he studied piano at the Royal Conservatory of Music. He performed with several rock bands to include touring north eastern Canada with a highly sought after Van Halen Tribute Band. While at school, JP went to a Buddy Miles concert in London, Ontario, (Hendrix, Band of Gypsys, Santana) and went backstage to meet him. With his astonishingly accomplished guitar playing, Buddy was so impressed with his virtuosity, and knowledge of Hendrix songs and the fact that he played the guitar left-handed-backwards (like himself), that he invited JP to jam with him the following night. Buddy then asked the young-gun to join his band back in Los Angeles, so at 21, JP moved to LA.

The seasoned guitarist says, “I first started to copy licks from Rory Gallagher, Paul Kossoff, Eric Clapton/Cream, Leslie West, Dave Gilmore, and what I got from them was two folded, ONE, the guitar-into-distorted-amp thing, TWO, more important, the phrasing that was part of their style, which for me, was coming from the blues. Learning their licks felt like "going to school" with people that, being bit older then me, where coming from the teaching of BB King, Albert King, Buddy Guy and like guitar Masters, and I always felt that I was getting the best of both worlds, making the Blues-rock connection, Then, after getting hold of Jimi’s and Page’s Albums, I went one step further, in understanding how much you could really do with a guitar. From there on, going through Jeff Beck, I developed the virtuoso part of my playing and landed where I am now, a mix of classic blues, with a rock edge and extra licks to keep things interesting.”

This was the beginning of JP’s professional musical career. From a 3 piece rock group to a full 16 piece Latin / funk band and everything in between, JP has toured the world, learning first hand many styles of music. He has since played and continues to work with a myriad of talented artists. JP’s talent goes beyond guitar playing. He is also an accomplished producer/writer, with many CD productions and songs under his belt.

"I truly dig this record. It’s refreshing to hear a guitar player sound like he means it! I also like the variety of tunes and the patience in the solos."
-- Kirk L. Covington

He has work with Atlantic Records, BMG Records, Warner Bros, Z Records, Quantum Records, CGD Records, indie labels, TV shows on Fox, Rai2 TV, and has written songs on multi platinum recordings for multi-plantum artist, The seasoned musician has done clinics in the top music schools, and has had ads in the top music magazines. These are just some of JP accomplishments.
