about

Jean-Paul De Roover Thunder Bay, Ontario

Much more than just a one man band, De Roover uses live looping to combine rock, folk, electronica and a capella into his own well constructed hook-filled post-pop.

Track Name: Blue
Run around the garden
Without any shoes
You stood upon a barrel when
It broke and you fell through

Anytime you wander
I know you’ll be home soon, and I love…

I’m thankful that you’re safer now
But your confidence is bruised
2 stitches, scars and limbs intact
But without a toe removed

If you like the seaside
I’ll paint your bedroom blue, cause I love…

I know you’re smoking cigarettes
I can smell them on your clothes
I’ll patiently be waiting here
Watching as the years go

And if you see the lightning
Then I’ll hold you til it’s through, cause I love…

If you like the seaside
I’ll paint your bedroom blue
Because I know you love me too
Just as much as I love you
Track Name: An Ode To This City
An ode to this city
I thought I'd never leave
God I've been busy
But I'll save you the speech
I've left and come back
But I'm leaving once again
Goodbye sweet town of mine

You gave me a home
When a house was all I knew
Now the time has come
So I'll say goodbye to you
I won't be back
I'm leaving now for good
Goodbye sweet town of mine

Hold my tongue
When there’s nothing nice to say
Hold my tongue
I’ll be leaving either way
Hold my tongue
When there’s nothing left to do

Hold my tongue
When there’s nothing nice to say
Hold my tongue
I’ll be leaving either way
Hold my tongue
When there’s nothing left to prove

Hello city
It's nice to see you well
The people are busy
You've got no time for me
I guess I'll find
A town to call my own
Goodbye sweet town of mine
