about

The Naked Sessions began during the Summer of 2006. It was an extremely hot summer and I was living in a small one bedroom apartment in Salt Lake City. These tracks were all self recorded and were originally shared on my Myspace page. The title refers to both the stripped down nature of these recordings and to the fact that I was naked during most of this album's production. That's one of the advantages of home recording. It is hard to say if being nude has audibly affected the tracks. They do all have a loose and adventurous feel however.

This was back during the Golden Age of Myspace when artists were able to reach fans all over the world without being diverted into ad schemes as is the case with Facebook. My audience had, perhaps, reached its peak that year as I had several thousand followers. Some of whom, would become good friends and even lovers in the real world. In 2009 and 2010, I arranged European tours built through these relationships. Though there are several ways for artists to share music today, none of them connect musicians with listeners nearly as effectively as Myspace once did before parasitical corporate interests entered the scene to prey off of artist's ambitions...

about

J.P. Whipple Portland, Oregon

J. P. Whipple is a barefoot vagabond whose errant rambles have taken him through the Great American West picking up songs along the side of the highways, in the mountain forests, the rivers, canyons and down broken alleyways.
