Accolades aside, and there are many from people like Chet Atkins, Marty Stuart, Waylon Jennings and Gordon Lightfoot; J.P. sees himself as just a performer. He is shy, but has a razor sharp wit and lightning sense of humour. He can be reserved or edgy to the point no return. He speaks for soldiers, first responders, other artists, the forgotten and lost. He speaks sometimes only for himself and refuses rebuttal. Of all the things he is, foremost he is an entertainer.
