info 

Burundian-born soul singer JP Bimeni doesn't see the world through rose colored glasses, but he exudes optimism in his second album, ‘Give Me Hope’. Grooving between classic 60s Motown and Stax-inspired soul, psychedelia and Afro-funk. Inspired by leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr. and James Stern (the namesake of an empoweringly funky track) and propelled by the wisdom of prolific creators like Lee Scratch Perry, Bimeni’s deep consciousness and vulnerability is on full display without losing pop sensibility. Much like JP Bimeni's belief in the need for global cohesion, ‘Give Me Hope’ is the result of a collaborative effort. His six-piece band, The Black Belts contribute their diverse musical backgrounds to the breadth of soul stylings on this album.
