John Orpheus Announces New EP ‘GET RIGHT!’ Out June 21, Drops Funky Title Track


Born and raised in South-Central Trinidad, John Orpheus is a multicultural musician, author and performance artist. Get Right!” is the title track introducing his new EP out on June 21st, which combines his playfulness, fluency and affection for the past. Lush with hip hop swagger and “whole school” vibes, he demonstrates an evolving set of tastes that maintains his vibe of welcoming in the whole diaspora: from dancehall to hip hop to funk to Afrobeats. 

Funky, fun, and wavy, John excitedly shares that the lead single is about: finding your swag, securing the bag, and eating well. It’s a party vibe with an old school funk energy reminding you to get up, get down and get right. The goal is to dance and shake off whatever is holding you back from your best and baddest self. Sauce is what you put on food to give it flavour. This tune is the sauce. 

“Get Right!” is accompanied by a music video directed by Agata Waclawska and Alex Exists, with Agata revealing that “the secret to John’s coolness lies in his ability to not take himself too seriously yet simultaneously deliver a meaningful good time.”

Since releasing his album SAGA KING in 2021, he has been busy promoting his memoir SAGA BOY (Penquin Random House), writing two children’s books and a forthcoming debut novel titled BLACK CHEROKEE (Simon and Schuster). John Orpheus and his writing alter ego Antonio Michael Downing are co-creative forces on an artistic roll in 2024.
