J.P. Shilo first appeared on the scene in the 90s with the now cult-like underground

instrumental outfit Hungry Ghosts. Quickly capturing the attention of the late Rowland S.

studios to record a follow up album entitled Alone, Alone.

In recent years, J.P. Shilo has been the “go-to” man for many solo artists looking for

Laucirica’s LPs Sway & Early Summer, and Mick Harvey’s most recent LPs, Sketches from the

Book of the Dead & FOUR (Acts of Love).

He has also been a member of The Blackeyed Susans for the last 8 years, and has just
