J.P. Whipple encompasses what it means to be a human of the West. –LeAundra Jeffs SLUG MAG
Sometimes amongst the huge quantity of formulaic 'country music' and it's numerous offshoots, even occasionally segueing into the blues, it is possible to find an artist who is completely driven by their own musical muse or vision. - American Roots UK
"Thinking of you…Staring at the Power Lines is the lovely combination of prominent banjo playing, gothic folk, a dash of psychedelia and haunted vocals wrapped into a brilliantly unique, dark, vintage sound."-Nix Beat SLUG MAG
Often referred to as the ‘barefoot troubadour’ this complete one off, hugely original singer songwriter travels America’s highways and byways playing in small venues for anyone with sufficient taste to realize they are listening to a musical genius.-American Roots UK
"It’s impossible, on the strength of just a couple of albums, to justify a claim that he is in the class of John Prine, Guy Clark, Townes Van Zandt or a few of the other great singer songwriters, but if he continues to progress in the way he has with this tremendous recording it won’t be long before that comparison is justifiable. He’s very, very close now! "- American Roots UK
"Whipple channels a vaudevillian, old-timey, creeped-out, almost carnie aesthetic that is well worth its weight in snake oil." Eugene Weekly
"I wouldn't be surprised if J.P. Whipple arrives to this show in the back of a truck that picked him up on Route 66. An itinerant folkie who's traveled across the United States and Europe, Whipple channels the spirit of legends like Tom Waits and Django Reinhardt with his raw, playful songcraft. " San Diego City Beat
