Album Notes
J.D. Hobson * Traditional Blues and Americana
...Kelly Joe Phelps, Neko Case, Alvin Youngblood Hart

"...There have been many great performers at this year's Bumbershoot Busker stage, but J.D. is the one I'll be taking home with me in my heart." - Artis the Spoonman

What's the flavor J.D. Hobson brings to the stage? Imagine a hearty base of authentic blues roots from the likes of Son House, Skip James, and Blind Willie McTell. Add country greats Hank Williams and Willie Nelson, along with healthy portions of contemporary artists like Paul Burch and Kelly Joe Phelps. Simmer down with Dylan-esque folk and finish with a pinch of Peter Tosh for flavor, and you've got yourself a recipe for one of the hottest young artists to come along this year.

Born and raised in central Seattle, J.D. has also lived in smaller communities like Bellingham, Washington and Big Mountain, Arizona, as well as his current Redmond, Washington address. If you ever want to know what traditional living in a Navajo hogan will do for a man, just ask J.D., or listen to "Desert Road," a song influenced by his experiences in the Southwest.

Performing at venues throughout the Puget Sound area, including recent performances at Bumbershoot, J.D. Hobson has continued to impress audiences with his casual polyrhythms and haunting, passionate vocals. As one Bellingham audience member put it, "I just can't believe so much music can come from one person!"

A consummate learner and professional, J.D. is constantly studying his craft, from vocal and instrumental technique, to studio craftsmanship, to live performance and onstage entertainment. J.D. Hobson is truly a young artist on the rise.
