Chrissie Hynde and JP Jones Show

Share this post

Chrissie Hynde is one of the best American songwriters ever, in my opinion I should say. Needless to say, I was excited to see her last night in Annapolis Md. at the Ramshead with her new project. To be fair, it’s not “her project”, it’s a bonafide collaboration with Welsh singer songwriter JP Jones, hence the name: JP, Chrissie and the Fairground Boys. The songs from the debut album tell the story of how they met, how they fell in love, and the trials and tribulations of a romance when two people are about 20 years apart in age. If you’re a fan of the more “Americana”Pretenders songs like “Kid”, I think you’ll find this new collaboration worthy of exploration.

Pat Ferrise grew up loving ”the punk rock” and “new wave.” His years at one of the nation’s top college radio stations ultimately led him to a 15-year run as music director of alternative music icon WHFS Washington/Baltimore. Rolling Stone magazine named him of the most influential programmers of the 90s. He’s recorded two albums under the moniker Trampoline for the now defunct SpinArt label. He lives in Baltimore and takes no credit for writing this bio.
