JC was born and raised in Buddy Holly's home town of Lubbock, Texas, but has lived in the Pacific Northwest for several years. His Texas roots now have a little moss attached. JC thinks of his songs like tumbleweeds stuck in a barbed wire fence waiting for the wind to blow them free. The 'Tumbleweed Troubadour' writes and sings mesquite-flavored americana, and is an energetic, fun-to-watch entertainer. He enjoys performing his rockin' country folk songs full of humor and heart. JC is the former President of the Portland Songwriters Assoc., contributes articles to the PSA and other songwriting publications, and has won recognition from several major song contests.
