Memphis born, the son of a sailor and his singing wife, who taught me that life, is a never ending road. Bumped around until I found music, ‘yes’. First studied classical guitar, then started playing music professionally via jazz (singing & guitar), moved to R&B, then to bass guitar and C&W/original/etc, and then, finally settled into writing, vocals, harmonica, and guitar.

Living in the hills outside of Santa Fe (great town for songwriters). The whole time (30+ years) I’ve been writing and bringing my satchel of songs to the various musical bus stops along the way. 

Have eleven CD’s released (currently working on four others). Have played with or opened for a number of internationally known artist. Traveled all over the US and a fair amount of Europe performing. Am presently playing out in the northern New Mexico area either solo, duo, trio, etc., with the emphasis, as always, being on original music. And, I’m still looking down the road ta see what this journey has in store for this trooperdore.


To all my fellow travelers, met and yet to meet, thanx for the listen and the support along these miles of time, rhyme, and rhythm. Peace and music, Jimbo
