Check out great new music from JAAP called ” something for my soul”.
Why did you select this song as your current single?
It has groove and a good beat and I love the lyrics which I am sure a lot of people out there will identify with.
How does this single relate to the rest of the Album, EP or Mix-tape?
It is an important piece of the mosaic which is the album “What I’m here for” and of the message the album tries to convey.
What was the writing process for the song?
Easy, really. I sat down and just looked back on my life for a while and the whole thing just seemed to come together. It really did not take that long.
What does this song’s lyric mean to you?
I really believe this song very much reflects the way I feel – as I’m sure many other people do – in as much as it expresses the hunger we all experience after having done and seen a great deal in this world and still yearn for that something which will fulfil us in a new way.
What would it be like to see you in person performing this song?
I recently performed it with only my guitar at a friend’s painting exhibition and I was amazed at how people’s mood suddenly picked up as they started to move to it while smiling from ear to ear. It was a lot of fun to watch.
Could your fans summarize who you are as an artist by this song?
No, I don’t believe so. As my music covers not only one style, it would not be a fair assumption.
Is there a video planned and or completed and if so, what was the idea behind the video?
Actually, we are starting to shoot 2 new videos this coming weekend – if the weather allows it as it will beoutside – with 2 very good and eager young men who have great ideas that I myself would never be able to think of. I very much look forward to working with them.
One last question, what is your motivation behind your music?
Very similar to my having to breath. It is simply a necessity.
