The world is our stage - Sharing the stage with Lucy Korts is JD Powter, singer and songwriter also from Queensland. JD Powter (Or Jamie Powter) also discovered his love for music very soon in his life. "I spent all my life singing and writing songs and fell in love with music from the moment I could listen. It’s been a huge part of my life and my songwriting is a cathartic process that has help me to be resilient and honest. Song writing uncovers a lot about how I feel and how I see the world and more often than not I don’t understand the context of my music until after I hear it back and only then does it become clear."
During our chat tonight, JD Powter will be sharing his process which involves creating a meditative state that allows his subconscious to interact with my music.
JD Powter tells he has a large catalogue of songs, and really want to give wings to his art. "My joy is in the process of making the music and for that I am very grateful."
His music quest through life has let him to travel a couple of years ago to Patmos, a small island in Greece for a writing workshop With Patty Griffin, Sean Colvin and Judy Collins. "The trip to Greece has been an important part of my creative journey as I move through my 40s.", tells JD Powter who has a young family and a business - music to him remains a cool function of who he is, "and it represents a lot of my passion."
COVID19 pandemic has caused a lot of disruption for many and most. But, for some as well, it brought many of us and our families together. This is no different for JD Powter who has lately been playing a lot with his brother, Deon Powter (who has also participated in Cheeky Tunes Friday Happy Hour before). "We've been performing a lot of private party gigs in people’s private homes in response to the Covid19 pandemic", says Powter.
As restrictions ease off, both brothers plan to do some more recording and more private performances. "I really enjoy the intimate setting being able to tell a story with the music that we have to share."
