Born in suburban every-town USA, J.R. was swept away by the kinetic forces of life as soon as he was old enough to begin to understand them. He maintains that momentum to this moment, along with the playful spirit and restless mind he’s had since long before. He learns the craft of guitar the same way he entertains his overactive imagination: through human interaction, an adventurous spirit, and an insatiable need for insatiability. It’s a combination that sweeps him from city to city, country to country, and the corners of his own mind, leaving him with stories and ideas in words and song, and the hopes of turning them into echos in your mind.
