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.

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.
