In November 2012, JC made his premier in Europe to an already established audience, and returned stateside to tour in December--when he was featured as one of “Twenty to watch in 2013” at the Los Angeles Examiner.

The new EP is set to be released September 2013, and will consist of new songs JC composed while traveling through Europe.
