It seems fitting that JD McPherson grew up in rural Oklahoma. It was in that down-to-earth environment that he started playing guitar at age 13, and later began writing his own songs. He went on to study, and eventually teach, visual art. Musically, McPherson had been drawn to 1950's rock and roll, and he decided to pursue a career in music. His debut album was released in 2010, and now comes the follow-up Let The Good Times Roll. JD McPherson draws upon R & B, rockabilly and roots rock traditions for his own contemporary take on rock and roll.
