JP Sunga Dives Deep In Dirty Water

The Waterloo singer delivers a powerful testimony in this gospel-fuelled release.


JP Sunga cleanses his soul (and yours) with Dirty Water in his soaring, soul-stirring single and video — showcasing today on Tinnitist.

Diving into the theme of self-redemption and rediscovery, the award-nominated Canadian singer-songwriter inspires listeners to find inner strength with his profound track. “Many of us tend to collect, carry, and keep baggage as we journey through our lives from negative experiences we’ve endured,” Sunga shares, “and it can really start to wear us down mentally, emotionally and even physically. Dirty Water is about self-renewal; allowing oneself the courage to accept, and the strength to heal and progress from the hurt, burdens, and regrets of their past.”

Fittingly, Dirty Water sprang from Sunga’s own self-renewal. The veteran artist’s overlapping passion for his family and his craft culminated in the decision to record a legacy project for his children — and to prove that, no matter your age or stage in life, you can and should continue to pursue anything you feel called to do. Dirty Water features an eruption of texture and harmonies that pair perfectly with the explosively joyful voices of American gospel vocal group Stems Music, who help Sunga deliver a track that is as riveting as it is thunderous.

Beyond his innate ability for performance, the Toronto-born Waterloo artist has found success and critical acclaim via videos that have earned several Canadian Independent Music Video Award nominations.
