INTERVIEW: Jasper Sloan Yip

There is a sense of familiarity in listening to Jasper Sloan Yip’s music that is as comforting as having a conversation with an old friend.

Perhaps this is due to the heart-on-the-sleeve nature of his songwriting, which is as confessional as it is reflective. Cue the creation of his sophomore album, Foxtrot, which chronicles the ending of a relationship while piecing together the fragments of the life that once framed it.

In the three years between his debut album, Every Day and All At Once, and now, Yip has fine tuned his songwriting craft which is certainly evident in the details of the nine tracks that map out Foxtrot. The first song off the album, ‘Show Your Teeth’, won Shore FM’s Best of BC contest this past May.

We recently had the opportunity to chat with Jasper on the new album, the local music community, and the upcoming cross-Canada tour. Foxtrot is out as of tomorrow, and the release party for the album will be at The Media Club this Wednesday July 17th.
