Singer/songwriter JD McPherson makes vintage-sounding rock with nods to '40s R&B, blues, and '50s rockabilly. A native of Oklahoma, he grew up listening to a wide array of music from traditional country and rockabilly to punk and hip-hop. Although music was always an interest, McPherson first worked on his family's cattle ranch and later earned a Master's degree in open media from Tulsa University, eventually teaching and receiving attention for his video art installations. McPherson is a member of the Tulsa-based rockabilly ensemble the Starkweather Boys, whose classic style caught the ear of Chicago retro-rock impresario Jimmy Sutton. A job backing Sutton on a few shows followed for McPherson, as did the idea of his own solo project. In 2010, he released his solo debut, the Sutton-produced Signs & Signifiers (featuring the single "North Side Gal"), on Hi-Style Records. In 2012, Signs & Signifiers was re-released to a wider audience on Rounder Records and ultimately reached number 47 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart. That same year, McPherson was invited to join acclaimed British singer/songwriter Nick Lowe on a leg of his West Coast tour. Two years later, he delivered The Warm Covers EP, which featured versions of songs by Billy Boy Arnold, Lowe, and others. In 2015, he returned with his sophomore full-length album, the Mark Neil-produced Let the Good Times Roll. ~ Matt Collar
