It’s impossible to categorize Jon Bap. While certainly a soul crooner, he’s clearly not just “a soul crooner,” as his sweet croonings are backed with sounds that are in from way out. Without question however is the fact that Jon Bap is one of the most forward thinking artists on the Buffalo music scene, and based on some of the Internet love he’s starting to get it looks like his footprint will be expanding beyond WNY with the re-release of his 2014 EP Let It Happen and lead single “Gooder Than Before/Forced.” We loved it before, and that love affair has only gotten hotter thanks to his engrossing live shows over the last few years. Keep an eye out for this reissue in the coming weeks, and enjoy this slice of avant-garde soul.
