Imagine a new sound, a cross between American country outlaw roots and the old-school country blues. This is what JD Hobson has done in his most recent album, “Where the Sun Don’t Shine.” This album takes you back and rocks at the same time. Soulful – yet edgy – a whole new take on roots. “Hobson's brand of bluesy Americana is steeped in rich outlaw tradition.” (Seattle Weekly Reverb Magazine) JD Hobson began as a solo artist performing his large repertoire of upbeat Americana and Country Blues in the Seattle area. What drew JD Hobson to old-style blues and Americana? It started with a father who came to the Northwest from Virginia with a passion for the blues. JD’s exposure started early and the music was on the radio every night. The depth and meaning of these traditional musical styles is engrained in his DNA. “This music is about reaching down deep and coming up with something authentic and timeless. The trials, sadness, and triumphs of people here in America continue on today only dressed in different clothes. Times have changed, but we inherit the blues.” - JD The JD Hobson Band is the natural evolution of JD's solo career. Made up of three members, with Dan Infecto (Bob Wayne & The Outlaw Carnies) on upright bass and Nick Auckland on drums, the band brings even more energy and depth to the upbeat, soulful music their fans have come to love. Whether it’s their rockin’ version of Son House’s “Preachin’ the Blues,” or the true Americana flavor of JD's original song, “Where the Sun Don't Shine,” their music has been known to get the whole place dancing. JD has played on stages like Bumbershoot, the Bite of Seattle, Taste of Tacoma, and has had regular gigs at the Conor Byrne Pub and the Highway 99 Blues Club in downtown Seattle. His first release, “Desert Road,” reached #5 on the KEXP Blues charts.
