JUKIN' IN '16 Podcast

Well, 2016 has been a crazy year for JCS, folks!

Released "FIRES & FLOODS" (NOW ON SALE) and toured the dirty South in the spring where I met and jammed with amazing people from the Mississippi Blues Culture at the Juke Joint Fest in Clarksdale,MS. One of my favorite sets was we played a show on a Train as it passed through Clarksdale on it's way to the Hopson Plantation.

Opened for Royal Southern Brotherhood and Savoy Brown in my hometown and kicked-off my hometown blues fest, "Blues Under the Brigde", with my buddy Grant Sabin.

Hit the road to Northern California on a little saloon/street performance tour and revisited some old haunts from my time there in years past.
Then, returned to Mississippi in October for the "Deep Blues" fest, where I had the pleasure of connecting with amazing people and sharing songs from different regional traditions.

Also did a hefty amount of street performing well into the fall on tour and back home. Found that to be such a great way to connect with the folks I otherwise wouldn't. If you are  reading this because of one of those encounters, then, THANK YOU!


Right now,I am working on a Hill Country Blues Album which is comprised of songs I've written over this past year while traveling the country and jamming with new folks and thus learning new styles that influence my songwriting and tone of performance.

I'm planning alot of time on the road for 2017 so I am using my time this Winter to finish record material for upcoming albums and to practice for tour. Very excited to share all the work I've been up to with you guys. 
THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR READING!  MORE TO COME!
