Shilo has been the “go-to” man for many solo artists looking for something different to compliment their music. Working alongside Mick Harvey on the critically acclaimed Rowland S. Howard LP, Pop Crimes, JP’s unique approach and techniques, added a new dimension to Howard’s songs, furthering his reputation as a highly sensitive and sought after musician. A multi-instrumentalist who thinks outside the box, he has also lent his skills to Brian Hooper’s latest LP Trouble, Adalita’s debut solo album, as well as Amaya Laucirica’s Early Summer LP, and Mick Harvey’s forthcoming LP, Sketches from the Book of the Dead. Having recently returned from a successful European tour as part of The Triffids, JP is currently working on a follow up record to his previous work, As Happy as Sad is Blue, which AMG described as “...
Underground music, Outsider Art at its best...” This new album, will include one of his most compelling works to date, a ten minute violin piece entitled S L E E P, which is currently being used by a Melbourne psychologist to facilitate hypnosis. Apart from his association with the “Rock” scene, J.P. Shilo has also proven his talents in the soundtrack world. Most recently providing original scores for numerous short films, including Kasimir Burgess’s “Lily” which was screened as part of the Australian showcase at last year’s MIFF, and subsequently went on to win a Crystal Bear at this year’s Berlin Film Festival. While many will look for easy comparisons, J.P. Shilo creates heart-stopping music without a clear genre.
