Cormier delivers philosophical folk music

J.P. Cormier is truly a master musician. He can play basically every string instrument ever invented. People are in awe over his technical mastery and ability to infuse every song with emotion. That coupled with a deep, warm voice make his music appealing to many.

He’s recorded 16 albums, and says he still wakes up and is amazed and blessed by all the success he’s having, and his current tour through Canada and the US. His current album, “The Chance” is his most successful to date. The popular song “Hometown Battlefield” (a song speaking to the ones who serve our country) has fueled sales of the album and the popularity of Cormier.

Cormier loves the new industry. He explains how 20 years ago he wouldn’t have a chance getting a record deal. Now he doesn’t need a record deal. He can do the business side of things himself, and connect with fans via social media. Record labels want generic, superficial music, which doesn’t work with Cormier’s style.

J.P. is continuing his success, quietly creating the masterpiece of his life. He got the opportunity to go overseas and play his music for the people serving his country. He said that experience fundamentally changed the way he thought about life. It made him a better person.
