A modern vintage troubadour. Cowboy bebop and Gypsy crawl. Jazzabilly Punkgrass and Bossablues.
Born in a desert bayou under a sun-bleached full moon. Raised on cactus meat and scorpion gin. A journeyman, student, teacher, moth, flame, Alpha and drone.
He has performed all across the US, top to bottom and left to right. Big places, little places, concert halls and street corners. He’s shared the stage with everyone from the Roots to Social Distortion, Jason Mraz to Yusef Lateef. He’s had “real” jobs, including computer tech, salesman, waiter, cook, farmhand, teacher, factory grunt and hustler. But not for a while now.
jon-ji has just released his love letter to a time that never was, called the “Dear Old World EP.”
