JJ Shiplett

Calling JJ Shiplett a force of nature might be considered a hyperbole to those who haven’t heard the singer perform live, but for anyone that has, it fits the bill just right. Few musicians can capture a person’s attention by way of song as effortlessly and honestly the way Shiplett does.

Having a rare ability to connect with audiences using his affecting and vast vocal range, the singer first made his mark on the national music scene in 2017 with his CCMA-nominated debut album, ‘Something to Believe In.’ The roots singer returned with a CCMA-nominated sophomore record in March 2020, ‘Fingers Crossed,’ an album which further showcases his ability to captivate through contemplative songwriting.

Now, Shiplett has released a stripped-down mirror version of his sophomore album, called ‘Crossed Fingers.’ This special Crossed Fingers Edition, which features the bonus song, ‘Bluejay Highway,’ highlights JJ’s unique voice in a way that will leave the listener wanting more.

One part enigma, one part lover, one part creative…JJ Shiplett is many things, but as a musician, the singer is greater than the sum of these parts and always leaves a lasting impression.
