Acid rock, traditional blues, folk, soul, free form jazz, and the never ceasing desire to improvise form this mind bending kaleidoscope of sound, energy and vibe. NPR said “This Nashville blues trio sounds as if it comes to us straight from 1968.” And Rolling Stone lauded, “J.D. Simo spins soulful psychedelic blues rock with an improvisational bent reminiscent of the Grateful Dead and Stevie Ray Vaughan”. With his band, JD and cohorts have gained a solid fan following from touring and opening for bands such as Blackberry Smoke, The Gregg Allman Band, Warren Haynes, Tommy Emmanuel and others. They have played Bonnaroo, Warren Hayne’s Christmas Jam, Mountain Jam and JD recently joined Phil Lesh & Friends for a night dubbed “Dead Blues” at Terrapin Station.
Current album on Sony/Red/Orchard was released on March 1, 2019.
