Growing up in Southern California, JB was part of the early 2000’s Alt-Rock scene. With the Sunset Strip practically in his back yard, JB and his then band X-Syndrome, played such venues as The Whiskey a go-go, The Roxy, The Troubadour, The Viper Room and many others around SoCal.
With a father that was a rock drummer in the LA music scene in the 80’s, JB naturally gravitated toward the drums. He grew up listening to Rush, The Police, Led Zeppelin, and many other rock bands. He credits his country love to his mothers side of the family as they hail from Mississippi.
JB remembers from a young age loving such country greats as Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings, and Willie Nelson. It wasn’t until the mid nineties that JB came into his own with country music loving such artists as Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Clint Black, and many others.
After years of being a front man in rock bands, JB ultimately wanted to become a country artist as that was always in his heart since he was young. He finally got the chance in 2017 when he released his first single “Love Don’t Live Here” and never looked back.
JB has over 80 million streams worldwide with songs such as “Church Pew”, “Tonight”, and “Oceans”.
JB served 12 years in the United States Marine Corps and was ultimately medically retired from injuries sustained in combat operations in Iraq.
He tours with his band “The Company”.
JB and his wife have 4 children and currently reside in Central Virginia.
