"The music on I Will Wait matches Corwyn's voice, to create a cohesive overall sound. Songs go from lighter fair, such as on As the Crow Flies, to heavier grunge-y numbers like Too Much to Dream. The melodies are catchy, and the instruments are well played, in particular the soaring guitars." - Graham Bailey


"This EP is excellent and so is artist behind it, JP Corwyn. I didn't know what to expect but I was blown away. He writes and plays good honest catchy rocking rock songs. His songs are so good. It just brings you to rock heaven. This is one good EP I have heard in a long time and can't wait hear what JP Corwyn brings out next." - Parax-3 Webzine


"This is a really promising EP from JP Corwyn. Fans of Collective Soul and Three Doors Down should check this out and hope Corwyn releases a full-length CD soon. The songs are well crafted and easy to listen to." (SH) - Impact Press


“Seemingly full of talent, and more than capable of overcoming personal obstacles (he's been legally blind since birth), Corwyn seems destined for greatness - bound for glory - the rock 'n' roll story of next year.”—Scorerocks.com

“JP will be compared to a lot of different performers as time goes…. (but) sometime in the not too distant future, up and coming artists will be compared to JP”—BVS Reviews

“Corwyn, though not signed to any label, is a much better singer than many popular musicians playing right now.”—Pucknation.com

- Various publishers


With an articulate, passionate and engaging voice, J P's instrument is thrust upon the listener without destroying the song structure and flows cohesively from one verse to the next. The rootsy honest and sincerity cannot only be heard in this voice, it can be felt. That is all any
musician can hope for.

“JP Corwyn delights audiences with insightful lyrics, solid tunes and a powerful expressive voice. Don’t be surprised when they burst on to the national music scene” Greg Whelan, McGinty’s Public House

“Hometown rocker, JP Corwyn is creating major-label buzz by way of a refreshingly original approach to the “modern rock” formula. An inspired collection of earnest ballads and full-bore rockers — woven together with impressive songwriting, achingly beautiful vocals and sonically vibrant musicianship; It’s our opinion that JP Corwyn shows all the potential of some of today’s most well-known rock musicians.”  Adam Simkin, Entertainment DC

Bio

Emotion
Corwyn works hard to imbue his songwriting with emotional punch, delivering catchy tunes that resonate within people’s minds and linger long after the show stops. “You shouldn't ever apologize for how you feel. What you do, maybe, but never how you really feel.” For JP Corwyn, the emotional content of his songs are merely the avatar  a representative face that stands for all that is human in the songwriters and the listeners.

Roots
Corwyn’s immeasurable passion for music stems back to his childhood. Music is a lifetime love for these musicians and the listener can readily detect this passion in the strains of the songs. “Someone once told me that I 'bleed' when I sing. Other people have described some sort of light around me when I'm up there. Whatever it is, people feel it when I sing, and that's a gift I'll never be greatful enough for.", Corwyn goes on to say, highlighting music’s ability to bring people together. Music also spans time and space, a quality noted by Corwyn: “Music can take you to any time and place & that’s a power beyond anything else man’s ever created. A bit lofty, but there it is.”

Philosophy
What makes a song good? "It has to be something that you feel, something that moves you. When music gets in your head, not just because it's catchy, but because you 'feel' something, and everytime it rolls around in your head, you feel that something again... 'that' is what makes a song'good'." Writing songs with which people can relate requires artists to be perceptive. One has to look everywhere. Says Corwyn, “I’m inspired by pretty much everything around me.” An artist must also be ready to respond to inspiration at a moment’s notice; one must stay alert. According to Corwyn, “The word ‘the’ if said just right in a given sentence can send my mind into writing mode. But I think the thing that inspires me the most is the crowd.” And we circle back again to unity via music. Corwyn and Co. hold the crowd in high esteem and seek always to affect the listener with strong music.

Music!
“With the first full-length album in the bag, recorded with multi-platinum winner Michael Seifert, it's time to tour, and then hit the studio again." The CD "In Plain Sight" will reveal to all the talent that ripples through this band.

A good piece of music will crawl into your head, and set up shop in your bones for a while. You'll feel the same, sometimes bitter-sweet emotion every time you hear the song, or section of a song. You'll request, or replay the song over and over until you've milked it for every last drop of that emotion - whatever feelings it brings up in you.
