Singer-songwriter JP Saxe graced the stage at Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn, NY on Thursday night and delivered a glorious set of chill anthems detailing his experience with heartbreak. Saxe’s dedication and love for songwriting came through so clearly with every word he sang. His quiet singing voice serenaded the audience in a beautiful way that created this stillness in the room that allowed everyone in the crowd to feel every emotion he exerted throughout the set.
Over the course of the night, he played songs like “Same Room,” “Changed,” and “25 In Barcelona.” Although his song lean on the sadder side of the spectrum, Saxe was glowing, partially due to announcing his highly anticipated debut EP Hold It Together earlier in the day, but also due to him playing to a sold-out New York crowd. Throughout his set he gave fans a taste of what to expect from his forthcoming EP, and they welcomed the new songs with open arms. Some fans even managed to learn the words to the chorus of a few of the songs, which was very special to witness.
Saxe is no stranger to touring, but the string of shows he’s playing currently is his first proper headlining run of tour dates. It was clear that every member of the audience positively adores Saxe and his music. Their willingness to listen to his stories and feel every single emotion he was putting out into the room with him was magical. It created a beautiful and unique sense of intimacy between him and his fans that’s hard to come by. Saxe closes out his set with his viral hit “If The World Was Ending,” which had the crowd singing louder than ever.
JP Saxe’s debut EP Hold It Together is set to come out next Friday, February 7th, via Arista Records. Follow him on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to stay up-to-date on all his forthcoming releases and tours.
