JP resident JESUS VIO knows how to make a pop song. This Miami native has been quietly sweetening the local music scene for years now, first with sloppy jammers FREE PIZZA and polished baroque pop of CAMP HOPE. Now he’s going solo, aiming at a straight blues rock sound. Throughout his career, Jesus’s simple yet incisive lyrics, delivered in a gravely, earnest croon, distinguish him as a gifted songwriter. His songs are immediately relatable, with poetic images interspered with honest, heartfelt observations on the modern human condition. Yet there’s a humble humor that keeps his tunes fresh and fun, perfect for a saturday night in a dingy, dimly lit basement. He’s latest song, Covers, is a bedroom anthem for all those who prefer to put things off and stay in bed. Look out for more soon.
