Album Notes
True to his Detroit roots, J.C.Spires began his musical odyssey playing the blues.

One night he made a musical connection that would forever alter his path; at the age of 19, J.C Spires met legendary bluesman John Lee Hooker. On a summer's night at Ethel's Lounge in Detroit, MI Spires and Hooker jammed together for the first time. The two immediately connected, and Hooker was so impressed he invited J.C. to move to San Francisco and join his band.
Of his experience with John Lee Hooker, J.C. recounts, "We just hit the stage smoking. As soon as we started playing together, the whole gig turned around for the better.".JC.'s musical journey continued to evolve from that powerful beginning.

After years of experimentation with various styles, this intense singer/songwriter arrived at his own sound -- a sexy, classy, yet modern take on the blues and pop/rock. "I went through alot of styles before I found out this was for me," he says. "I played r&b, folk and rock before I found my place."
Indeed, his sound is now all his own. He and his band use their performance mantra of "spare, dramatic, and understated" to deliver the message of the music. With J.C.'s smokey-rich voice, the result is a soulful, evocative mix of styles on "DEEP", his debut that brings the listener through the roller-coaster ride of a love relationship.

For J.C. Spires, his connection to the music is truly a personal one. "For me, the essence is to go deeper, and find something deeper in myself and bring that out," he says. At times earthy, at times ethereal...always deep.

"There's something in this world that differentiates one person from the crowd or makes someone standout from all the rest that I call The Magic. J.C.Spires has The Magic."
Dorothea Bradley

amazing storytelling, impeccably authentic music, a must have. . .
The sound of J.C.Spires' "Deep" is like a long drive on route 66. Hearing it, is feeling it! From the glorious feel good moments, to the pain and sorrow of a broken heart, the storytelling is amazing, and the music is impeccably authentic. A must have in your collection. . .


J.C. has captured the moment of voice and music with precision!
The CD is filled with touching, moving, and soulful, passages of true Blues. The music flows with such a fine sense of direction, that he makes the voice fill the moment with real feelings of being there in person. It's a hard thing to do on vinyl, but J.C. has done it to perfection. You won't regret dropping the dime on this CD, if your a true blues fan.

Hauntingly beautiful, emotionally resonant music from this versatile singer/song
Hauntingly beautiful, emotionally resonant music from this versatile singer/songwriter! At the age of 19, Detroit native J.C. Spires met blues legend, John Lee Hooker. The two "connected" immediately, and J.C. subsequently toured with Hooker for two years as his bassist. But J.C. expanded far beyond the blues after years of playing rock, punk, country and soul. "I went through a lot of styles before I found my place." Now this artist brings a soulful mix of styles to his upcoming debut -- at times earthy, at times ethereal... and always deep.
