Upon the release of his latest album in March 2019, Guitar World raved that JD Simo took “another step toward establishing himself as a contemporary blues rock giant”. Simo melds classic electric blues, the power of heralded British trios like Cream and the expansive sonic explorations of jazz and even The Grateful Dead into a vintage vibe that blurs the lines between genre and generations. His remarkable talent has earned Simo opportunities to share the big stage with many notable headliners including Big Head Todd, Tommy Emmaunel, Blackberry Smoke and Phil Lesh & Friends. NPR said “This Nashville blues trio sounds as if it comes to us straight from 1968.” And Rolling Stone lauded, “J.D. Simo spins soulful psychedelic blues rock with an improvisational bent reminiscent of the Grateful Dead and Stevie Ray Vaughan”.
