JP Saxe Performs “What Keeps Me From It” at Woodshed
- Canadian singer-songwriter JP Saxe performed “What Keeps Me From It” with just piano at Woodshed studio in Malibu, CA.
The song is included his debut album “Dangerous Levels of Introspection”, which was released in June.
It was written by TADD DAMERON, JP Saxe, Count Basie and Benjamin Rice.
JP Saxe told Apple Music about the song, “There are two moments on this album where it was important to really strip it back to the origins of me falling in love with music and songwriting. So there's one moment where it's just me and guitar recorded live—that's 'I Shouldn't Be Here'. And there's one that's live with just me and piano, and that's 'What Keeps Me From It'. I think this would have been 17-year-old me's favourite song. When I was 17, I was listening more to Bill Evans, Keith Jarrett and Oscar Peterson than I was to pop music. So this is definitely the song where I let that part of me out the most. The post-chorus melody of this song is actually from a Count Basie/Tadd Dameron record from around 80 years ago called 'Good Bait'.”
