He is a master of his craft, both as a singer-songwriter and a performer. Known for his abilities as a gracious storyteller, Gunning has knack for connecting with audiences. 

J.P. Cormier is regarded as one of the most important singer songwriters of his generation. From starting his career as a sideman to Stompin’ Tom Connors, Cormier released his first album Another Morning in 1997.The album garnered a JUNO nomination and an ECMA win. Sixteen albums followed, winning 12 more ECMA’s, another JUNO nomination, a Canadian Folk Music Award and five Music Nova Scotia Awards. Each album was a snapshot of what Cormier can do—fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, tribute records, songwriting—a spectrum of talent and musical vision.
