What does it profit a man to gain the world and lose his soul?” ~ Yeshua (Jesus)
Before becoming a believer JGP played in bands starting as young as the
age of 14 years old. Throughout those years he has been the vocalist for
2 metal bands, guitar player for a punk rock band, recorded hip hop
tracks and owned his own recording studio.
His testimony of transformation is nothing less than a miracle. After
becoming a believer in the Messiah, he decided to take a break from music
to learn the scriptures, and become closer to Him. He felt like God had
taken his abilities away after his transformation, and he wasn’t sure if
he would ever see them again.
In 2013 a record label called Nkosi Records was formed in Evansville
Indiana. Being involved in leadership with Nkosi Records, JGP never
thought he would get back into making his own music.His focus was on
helping others perfect their craft. Nkosi artist, Yung Kriss, gave JGP
the opportunity to be a feature on his mix-tape “Church Music”, which
would be his first track in over 6 years.
Later, record label owner Brian Turpin had asked JGP to pray about
signing to the label with the goal of reaching the lost sheep of the
House of Israel, the Jews, and edifying the Messianic/Hebrew Roots
congregation. He received confirmation from family and the beginning to
this journey begins.
