I'm Jeph Duarte, Bitch!


100% Authentic Texas Country!


Jeph Duarte grew up in San Antonio, TX listening to his dad's favorite country 8 tracks. In July 2005, he moved to New York City where he joined The Honky Tonk Happy Hour, a country collective playing Sunday afternoons on the lower east side. He started out drumming, moved into playing bass, and eventually took to the microphone playing classic country covers. This vast pool of talented musicians quickly formed bonds and Jeph soon branched off into solo performances with various members of the HTHH. Jeph's brand of country stems right from the roots of his southwest Texas childhood, varying from sad country songs to drinkin' singalongs. His twang is authentic and his mission is simple: play the songs that feel good. If he can get yer toe tappin', he's done his job!
