Jasper and his band will kick off their Summer Tour across Canada with an album release show in Vancouver on Wednesday, July 17th at The Media Club (695 Cambie St.), with the remaining Canadian tour dates taking place in August.

Vancouver singer/songwriter Jasper Sloan Yip has spent the last five years cutting his teeth on stages all across Canada and with the release of his 2nd album Foxtrot on July 16th, he’s set to start the cycle all over again!

Foxtrot isn’t out until July 16th but the album is already garnering plenty of attention for Jasper Sloan Yip. The album’s track listing includes his song, “Show Your Teeth”

 

About: Jasper Sloan Yip’s start was humble. A self-taught musician, he gave his first performance in 2007 on a stage he built in his own back yard. In 2010, he released his restless debut, Every Day and All at Once. Its songs charted on CBC Radio 3, appeared on network television, and landed Jasper showcases at festivals all over Canada, including Rifflandia, Canadian Music Week and Sled Island. Jasper was also a Top 20 Finalist in The Peak Performance Project in 2011.

Now, at the helm of an experimental folk-rock sextet, Jasper Sloan Yip is set to release his ambitious follow-up, Foxtrot. The earnest naïveté that characterized Every Day and All at Once is gone, replaced with pensive introspection and expansive instrumentation. The result is a mosaic: nine very different songs that, taken together, create a unified narrative about the pains – and joys – of love and art, making Foxtrot a very personal record.

“More than anything it’s an account of the end of my relationship with Stephanie, our violinist,” explains Jasper. “This entire record takes place within the walls of our apartment, but it’s bigger than that. I really tried to find the big picture from all of the small details of our life together. It also dives into my relationship with music. I tried to parallel the two relationships because they both demonstrated to me how difficult it is to love someone, or something. The opening lines of the record pretty much sum it up:

 

“You make it up to take apart, no matter what, sometimes you hate your art. You love her like you love your work: she makes you happy when she doesn’t make you hurt.””
