This month, OECS YES In Action caught up with Jonathan Shawn Philip, a 26 year old Music Technology major at NYU using his art to highlight the transcendental nature of love and human connection in this time of social distancing!
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a Saint Lucian songwriter, musician and photographer from Reduit Park, Gros Islet. I graduated from St Mary’s College in 2009, Sir Arthur Lewis Community College in 2011 and I am currently progressing to my final year at New York University (NYU) pursuing an undergraduate degree in Music Technology.
I have always been interested and active in exploring my creativity through all mediums available to me. The idea of creating something from scratch and/or taking raw materials to create something new has always kept me continuously challenged and in awe.
