Elba

by J.P. Cregan

The long-awaited, un-anticipated followup to J.P. Cregan's debut, Man Overboard finds Cregan taking his power-folk-pop into boomier, brassier, more stentorian territory.

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
J.P. Cregan is the nom de musique for John Cregan. This was done in an attempt to protect his anonymity.

J.P. has only been making solo records since 2009, when his first album, Man Overboard was released to the near-universal acclaim of approximately 140-175 people. His new record, Elba, is surely going to come out in November, 2012.

J.P. is also in a country band called Parklane Twin. Before that he was in a band called Dynamite Fraulein. Before that, he was in a band called Rollerderby. Before that, he was in a band called Sweetooth. He was in a lot of bands in college that had all kinds of names, both printable and unprintable. He was in a lot of bands in high school too. He basically likes to be in as many bands as he can be at all times. It's good to be in a band.

J.P. lives in a tony area of Los Angeles called Highland Park; as a matter of fact, it's so tony it's almost in Mt. Washington. During the day, J.P. works in the burgeoning and booming film and television industries. He also writes a regular column for ESPN on the joys of fantasy basketball. J.P. would not recommend his lifestyle to anyone. It's positively bleary. He yawns a lot.

The hallmark of J.P.'s sound is actually two hallmarks; producer/wunderkind Nik Freitas of East Pasadena and his B-Bender Telecaster. Nik Freitas plays everything on J.P.'s records that isn't a guitar. He's a very talented young man. In return for producing Man Overboard and Elba, J.P. officiated Nik's wedding last year. (J.P. is also a Friar in the Universal Life Church.) Nik is, as of this writing, still married.

J.P.'s musical influences include The Student Loan Corporation, Hydrocodone, and Nick Lowe.
