The best kept secret in music

Press


...the lyrics evoke the cornfields, barstools and tobacco kilns of the north Lake Erie shore and his strong, smooth vocals keep the album on a steady course...
Rockingham / Hamilton Spectator

...It goes without saying that his latest solo effort benefits from great production. The 11 song set features softly delivered lyrics against a mellow musical backdrop, mixing blues and R&B with some nice hints of jazz...Blue Martini isn’t an album to rev you up for a night on the town, but when you get home with that special someone, it might be the perfect alternative to, say, the too-blatant choice of Barry White as "mood" music...
Now Magazine / Toronto

...J.P. Riemens is co-owner of Hamilton’s Grant Avenue Studio, where people like Gordon Lightfoot record. Riemens has taken time off producing other people’s records to record his own songs. Good thing too. His new album Blue Martini features sone great songwriting.
Hamilton Spectator

... Riemens has created a smooth, intoxicating listen of songs...
