Earl Johnson II, better known by his stage name Earl St. Clair, is an American record producer, vocalist, and songwriter.
St. Clair began his career as a record producer, being credited as JP Did This 1.
He expected to primally work as a producer and co-writer and not as a solo artist. His career path changed when he signed to Def Jam Recordings in 2016.
In June, he made his television debut on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, performing "Perfect" with fellow Def Jam artist Bibi Bourelly.
In August, he released his debut single, "Man on Fire."
He explained his stage name in an interview with ThisIsRnB: "Earl St. Clair came from the irony from the fact that where I started producing in Cleveland, the street I was working on was St. Clair. It was 129 and St. Clair. Then when I got out to California the studio that I was working in was located on St Clair."
He plans to release his debut album, 'Songs About A Girl I Used To Know,' in 2017.
