Join Jacqueline Jax as she shares a morning cafe with French lifetime artist Jean-Pierre Klifa.
In a recent statement to a french journalist Jean-Pierre stated :”I play for free, I just love to play…. money is the least of my motivation when it comes to writing and performing…my reward is the pleasure and happiness I provide to my fans and listeners…”
French Bluesman….a long time resident of Miami now tours regularly, and Gemma Lounge is now his performing residence……
Jean-Pierre Klifa has had many aspirations over the years, he is an internationally known Fashion designer….he writes music just as he has designed for so many years, with deep passion and a certain carelessness that makes his end products…a song or a handbag so unique : But He has remained true to the blues and his music. Writing and playing music for a number of years, Jean-Pierre has recently made a commitment to his music . His creativity shows at every note played or sung in his songs.
Inspired from genuine events and persons to imaginary ballads and love stories, Jean-Pierre’s deep sincerity and heartfelt emotions transports us in a world of a unique style of music, dominated by his blues influences , but also by bluegrass and country and naturally good old rock and roll…..
This first album, PIXEL LOVE…. is a testament to his dedication to his Genre…with such songs as the cotton Fields which chronicles the life of legendary Bluesman “David Honeyboy Edwards”…in as much as the personal mystical rock ballad “at the beach”.
Jean-Pierre is in his own words is mesmerized by the guitar, more so than any other instrument. “on a guitar, the possibilities are just endless……….12 notes that never end being, pulled, bent, hammered in a myriad of tones and combinations….It’s like a galaxy of sounds for the soul…”
Jean-Pierre’s unlike many artists gives his music away for free….downloads are available form his facebook page or his website : www.jpkmusicproductions.com
