There’s an almost mythological quality to the world of Juan Pablo Wauters.
The Uruguayan-born, Jackson Heights, NY-dwelling musician is best known not
for a specific musical style, but instead for the crystalline sincerity
that underpins everything he does: from the heartfelt earnestness of his
lyricism to the playful rituals of his live shows (singalongs, covers,
races). To be a fan of his music is to be invited into the ever-expanding
cast of characters that animate his work - Wauters has a knack for
fostering community wherever he goes.

A founding member of Queens garage act The Beets, Wauters began releasing
music under his own name in 2014 with *N.A.P.* *North American Poetry*.
Released on Captured Tracks, his solo debut had the same candid charm and
DIY sound as his work with the Beets, but with a folk-inspired,
introspective glaze that would become his signature. 2015’s *Who, Me? *honed
in on those qualities, full of clever ruminations on the pace of day-to-day
life sung in both English and his native Spanish.

After the release of *Who, Me? *Wauters spent several years touring and
traveling the world, including a long stint in Latin America — from
Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, and Chile to Mexico and Puerto Rico — where he
began working on his next project. Inviting local musicians to contribute
to the songs he was working on, Wauters emerged with a collection steeped
in the musical traditions of each country he’d visited. As a result, 2018’s *La
Onda De Juan Pablo* and its follow-up, *Introducing Juan Pablo*, became his
most expansive and sonically diverse records to date, tracing both his
Uruguayan roots and his travellers’ spirit. Elements he’d flirted with in
the past - singing in Spanish, traditional instruments like bongo drums and
marimba, the collaborative spirit of his live shows - came to the forefront
on these releases.

Wauters’ chameleonic songwriting has continued to evolve in recent years:
on his latest effort, *Real Life Situations*, he’s delved deeper into
collaboration, teaming up with Mac DeMarco, Peter Sagar (AKA Homeshake),
Nick Hakim, Cola Boyy, El David Aguilar, and more for experiments in
hip-hop, lo-fi R&B, and deft indie folk. With some of his recording plans
hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic, he mined older songs, phone notes, new
material, and snippets from TV and YouTube to craft an aural document of
the year through his eyes. Under his care, these small moments become
coordinates for the peaks and valleys of human experience, coloring the
album with Wauters’ unique shade of realism.

Perhaps this realism is what makes Wauters such an inimitable artist. His
music has always sprung from the interplay between genre-hopping
eclecticism and earnest, plain-spoken observation. Themes of loneliness,
personal growth, patience, and companionship arise again and again in his
work, just as they do in life. Each time though, he manages to breathe new
life into them - to listen to his music is to navigate a rapidly-changing
world with him in real time. His unique ability to produce that feeling -
via his music, his live show, even his social media presence - ensures that
no matter where his travels take him, he’ll be welcomed with open arms.
