Check out this video for a little welcome message from JB, and few ancient photos and some rare concert footage we found in the attic.
Jonathan has been entertaining and turning heads since he dad taught him his first three chords on an old Martin 000-18. JBs music has been described as an in your face, southern country, roots rock, from the southern heartland. Think of Keith Richards and Merle Haggard jaming with Lynyrd Skynyrd.
He’s known for his strong vocals, harmonies and his driving electric guitar. He grew up with Waylon, Skynyrd, Merle, George, and Skynyrd. And you can hear it in his loud telecaster and greasy rythym That drive home his songs that come from the heart.
JB’s 2nd Album “Enjoy the Ride” achieved National acclaim in 2014 and 2013 with the song “Shootout Saturday Night” “Shootout” was featured on each ESPN’s coverage Saturday night races during the ’13 and ’14 Infinity and Sprint Cup series. “When You Say Yes” was coined as “The New Wedding Song” by Ralph Murphy of ASCAP. JB co-wrote this song with Kirsti Manna who wrote Blake Sheltons #1 hit “Austin” 2013 and ’14 was very busy and successful years for Jonathan, recording and releasing “Enjoy the Ride” and gaining thousands of fans and exposure with “Shootout”. With a small RV in tow JB embarked on his “Backroads Tour” that tool him from NC, through the heartland, around the great lakes, Maine, NY, down through the mid-atlantic and finally 4 months later he came home to NC. Pulling not just an RV, but a ton of new fans JB wants to take the “business out of the music business” and show others that you can have success. Jonathan is setting the bar high independent artist, so real, true music will prevail. He’s writing his 3rd album now with a working title of “All I Got”. He has a lot to say in his songs and his 3rd album will say everything that’s true to him and his music.
In an over saturated world of “bro-country”, country outlaw wannabes, JB has remained true to the roots of his musical past. He grew up with Waylon, Skynyrd, Merle, George, and Marshall Tuckers. And you can hear it in his loud telecaster and greasy rhythm that drive home his songs that come from his southern heart. JB’s music will let you have the time of your life, and move you to tears of long lost loves and places deep in your heart. A sound that is fueled with loud telecasters, a greasy back beat and three-part gospel harmonies. JB sounds like a southern fried, rockin country with a twist of heartland, Roots Rock, and a funky Little Feat thrown in for good measure. The driving influence of Zak Browne, and John Hiatt, The Eagles and Jackson Browne, can be heard in JBs originals. He has been compared to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Tom Petty, Zac Browne, Jimmy Buffett, and Darius Rucker. JB and his band have such a wide variety of music and styles that every ear will be entertained.
