This man has such an original style and sound, you just need to take a listen to his music. This is JJ Shiplett and today he is our feature artist on Pics From The Pit. 

How do you describe JJ Shiplett’s sound? It doesn’t necessarily fit into any one particular genre. I mean it’s roots, it’s country, it rocks a little. And his voice, well it’s got a little of that pack-a-day smoker kind of sound. A little rasp, and a whole lot of feel. A WHOLE lot. I highly recommend you check out JJ ‘s music.

I made these images as JJ and his band performed at The Dakota Tavern during Canadian Music Week in 2016 and it was amazing. The cozy confines of The Dakota means I was just a couple of feet away from the musicians and the lighting (or lack thereof) creates quite an ambience in the venue. It was great to see JJ again and I hope you like the shots.
