Award-winning multi-hyphenate, Johnathan “JDP” Pratt distills his own unique soulful sound through a fusion of rap, R&B, dance, electro, and pop.
Born on Chicago’s South Side, JDP grew up listening to a wide variety of music, eclectically drawing influence from the likes of Frank Sinatra to Prince and Bob Dylan to Kanye West.
He crafts with a modern sensibility, an ear tuned by past and present greats. Garnering critical acclaim through his groundbreaking mixtapes, he proved to be equally adept at crafting haunting guitar melodies as well as danceable electronic riffs. At the heart of it all is, of course, always "story." Like his collective The Swim Team, JDP is poised to continue to make waves.
