The Ballad Of Uncle JR…
Everybody has that crazy aunt or uncle in their family that marches to the beat of their own drummer. For me it was my great uncle Jesse “JR” Baham. Everybody thought he was crazy and thinking about it maybe he was but he lived his life to the fullest.

When I was 15 years old I spent a whole Summer with JR. he told me all about his days as youngster raising hell and playing music. Before he passed away I created a special bond with JR and theirs not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him. Because of him I learned to sing and play he taught me everything he knew about music and I give him full credit for any success that I have achieve in my career. His influence in music made me the musician and entertainer I am today. ”

My Album..
What folks can expect from my upcoming debut album is songs and lyrics full of feeling and emotion. The album will tell my story from start to finish. I’ve done my best to capture my unique sound and musicianship. I want to make the listeners feel my passion for music.
I live in Walker, Louisiana…
(about 15 miles from Baton Rouge.) The music scene is up and down but I’ve managed to make my home at places like Tickfaw Boopalu’s in Springfield Louisiana the owners Boo and Pat Milton has always kept me with a gig.

 

Music Industry…
Well there is no other business in the world like it! I believe tosucceed in there music business you have to learn every aspect of it yourself before handing it over to a manager or record company. I myself have been very fortunate that I’ve been allowed to research and network with many professionals. There’s always a challenge to sat relevant while also being unique. The pro’s out weight the cons for me about the only thing I don’t agree care much for is traveling everything else is a learning experience.

 

Inspired…
I would love to talk with Jerry Reed. His creativity was off the charts from songwriting to is musicianship.
