Today, multi-platinum GRAMMY® nominated singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist JP Saxe releases his latest collaboration, “Moderación (con Camilo)” via Arista Records. The new track features five- time Latin GRAMMY® winner and three-time GRAMMY® nominated Colombian singer- songwriter, musician, and producer, Camilo. The video, which thoughtfully depicts the juxtaposition of moderation and excess, was directed by Venezuelan recording artists and frequent collaborators, Evaluna Montaner and Ricky Montaner of Mau y Ricky.
Of the release, Saxe states: “Camilo is one of my favorite artists on earth and my brother. Doing this song together is a dream and I’m grateful I get to sing a song I love with a human I love. It has been a family affair with Evaluna and Ricky Montaner, Camilo’s wife, and brother-in-law, directing the video. Estaré muy feliz de poder interpretar esta canción con Camilo por el resto de mi vida.”
“When I had the chance to meet JP Saxe, I doubted that I could love him more than I admire him, because for a long time he has been one of my favorite songwriters,” said Camilo.“I’m so grateful that we actually had the chance to sit down and write this song together – it’s something I’m really proud of and can’t wait to share. One thing JP and I have in common is that we dislike people who love in moderación (moderation).”
Since September, Saxe has released two new singles, “When You Think Of Me” and “The Good Parts,” both of which he wrote and were produced by GRAMMY® Award-winning producer Malay (Frank Ocean, Lorde). He performed “The Good Parts” on NBC’s Today Show last month.
Building on the success of his breakout 2021 album, Dangerous Levels of Introspection, Saxe continued to make waves last summer with sold out performances, including tour dates with Alicia Keys and Lewis Capaldi. It was just announced that Saxe will support John Mayer on select dates of his anticipated ‘Solo’ tour this March, including a hometown show in Toronto, ON. See dates below. He will also be performing at Bonnaroo this summer, and future tour dates are yet to be announced for 2023.
