Boots & Hearts Preview: JJ Shiplett Q&A

If you haven't seen JJ Shiplett on stage, we highly recommend that you change that as soon as possible. And if you're going to Boots & Hearts 2017, your chance is coming soon!

We caught up with the Something To Believe In singer for a little pre-festival Q&A action, and as usual, JJ was awesome.

Thanks for JJ Shiplett for playing along, check out his answers and stay tuned for more previews, and more JJ soon!

Q: We've seen you play club shows at The Dakota Tavern and the Moustache Club, what's the biggest difference between playing those shows, and big festival shows?

JJ: Usually festival gigs are a bit more hectic. You only get a line-check and it's hop up and go. Where Club gigs are a bit more greasier. A little more intimate. I dig that. I want people to feel like this show is the most important thing in the world. Like there's no where else to be...

Q: What is your favourite part about the country music fans across Canada?

JJ: I find most music fans in Canada to be good people. Whether they're country, rock, folk or blues fans. Doesn't seem to matter. I think most Canadians wanna see other Canadians do well and create quality art.

Q: Can you tell us something about you that we wouldn't find in a Google search?

JJ: I won an award at my grade school graduation for being the Athlete Of The Year. I immediately retired from playing sports and took up music. Get out on top...

JJ: As a red head the only answer here is sunscreen.
