J.P. Kallio Short Info

“In a sea of singer songwriters thrives a voice someplace between Dave King, Johnny Cash and Tom Waits or perhaps within the sonic walls these names have built up. This voice belongs to well traveled Dublin based Finnish expat with the name J.P. Kallio. A man who finds comfort and, seemingly, ease in transitioning between music genres.”

J.P. Kallio has worked as a musician touring and recording with several bands, including TRE (1997-2000), Trostan (2005-2006), Anois (2002-2004) and Sliotar (2000-ongoing) Boneyard Bastards (2011-ongoing)
His solo albums portray J.P.'s songwriting skills with sparse arrangements, mostly just his skilful acoustic guitar playing and vocals. J.P. Kallio has a unique way of connecting with listener in his songs and in his live shows, which can only be achieved by years of experience.
In 2014 J.P. Kallio took on a personal challenge to record and release one song every week. As a result his first full length album "Northern Boy" was released on 25th of March to a high critical acclaim and will be followed by "Read Between The Lines" on 10th of June.

"Once upon a time we used to have storytellers; Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson have never sung a song in their lives. They just told stories while we sat and listened in awe. J.P.Kallio has that same quality."
