Jean-Pierre Ranger is a multifaceted Canadian singer/songwriter based in Ottawa, Canada. His strengths are his stage presence, rich vocals, melodies, and the conviction and raw energy he delivers to a live audience. His vocal flavours appeal to every mood from romantic bedroom blues to raunchy and thunderous power rock. He is a highly versatile songwriter creating music in his own unique “Americana Blues ” style. His music ranges from Rock, R&B, to Pop, Blues and Folk. His lyrics speak to our times. His songs tell the story of romance won and lost and the many roads that we travel down the highway of life. JP began singing and playing acoustic guitar to audiences at age nine and formed his first band by age 12. His early music years were filled with music from The Beatles, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, Muddy Watters and Johnny Cash. He then was exposed to seventies groups such as: Deep Purple, Led Zeppelin, and Pink Floyd. The eighties and nineties exposed JP to artists like Annie Lennox, Sting and Carly Simon. JP continues to be influenced by today’s World music.
A few years back JP teamed up with four solid musicians who played Chicago-style Blues, Rock and Jazz. The group explored many styles and eventually, a chemistry emerged from this five-piece band into what has become the songs you hear on JP Ranger’s Living Here CD. The ten tracks on this new CD are a snapshot of all the songs that were written during this period. This is JP Ranger. Enjoy !
