JD SIMO TRIO with Special Guest

Earl's, in association with WHOA!TONE Records, proudly present...

The J.D. Simo Trio with special guest, Patrick Sweaney

J.D. Simo, a Chicago-born, now Nashville transplant, is like a one-man crusade dedicated to keeping music real, raw, and honest. No matter the setting and no matter his role (whether it's wingman or bandleader).

J.D.'s presence infuses the situation of the moment with the music that's been fueling him pretty much his whole life, spiced with influences that straddle both decades and dimensions. The Hill Country trance blues of Junior Kimbrough, RL Burnside and Asie Payton. The hypnotic Afro Beat of Fela Kuti and Tony Allen. The psychedelic warps of Captain Beefheart, Funkadelic, and Jimi Hendrix. From the old school blues of John Lee Hooker, Earl Hooker and Lightnin' Hopkins, to the raw fuzzy rock of The Stooges and Nirvana. J.D.'s music is raw, funky and real; such is life.

As a songwriter, guitarist, and producer he has worked with the likes of Jack White, Tommy Emmanuel, Luther Dickinson, Dave Cobb, Blackberry Smoke, and even been a member of Grateful Dead founder Phil Lesh' "Phil & Friends".
