J.D. King

 Los Angeles, California, USA
BandCountrySinger/Songwriter

"The Gentleman" J.D. King, perhaps one of the best up-and-coming country singer/songwriters to arise in the country field today. You may have heard him being played on Jonsey's Jukebox (103.1)LA/OC, Frosty Heidi and Frank (KSLX 97.1)SoCal or caught one of his famed Cat Club Shows.

Biography

J.D. King is a definitive testament of a force recapturing the good old fashion way music was made and produced. Mixed with his own thoughtful, lovingly directed material he can embody the past as well as the present with an effortless and timeless manner. Whether using his acoustic guitar or his live hot lickin' country rock three-peice he'll capture the crowd with his "sweet country honey vocals" or "force-to-be-reckoned-with guitar picking". Reaching into his bag of songs, he'll keep a crowd tuned-in and entertained all the night with hand picked standards or fresh signatures from his own pen. You may have heard his beloved, self-penned "Two Six Packs A Day" on the radio, caught one of his shows opening for Pete Yorn during his extensive summer tour in 09', or read a review or two of his latest album or gig. Watch for this "New Star" on the rise. Truly J.D. is "a sight to behold".

Lyrics

Blackberry Road

Written By: J.D. King

Blackberry Road

I am Just A Lonely old Hobo
With Nothing in my life that's left to show
But I remember the time when I was younger
and reflect upon my home

Down that Old Blackberry Road
Where I used to spend My days of Old times
Down that Old Blackberry Road
Where the sun would shine through the clothes lines
and somehow I get this vivid picture in my mind
even though Blackberry Road was long Ago Behind

Golden Wheat fields High above my head
Catchin' fish down in the riverbed
in my life there's no place better no matter where I roam

Down that Old Blackberry Road
Where I used to spend My days of Old times
Down that Old Blackberry Road
Where the sun would shine through the clothes lines
and somehow I get this vivid picture in my mind
even though Blackberry Road was long Ago Behind

Even though I look like a poor man
My mind is rich with pride in who I am
I remember the time when I was younger and reflect upon my home

Down that Old Blackberry Road
Where I used to spend My days of Old times
Down that Old Blackberry Road
Where the sun would shine through the clothes lines
and somehow I get this vivid picture in my mind
even though Blackberry Road was long Ago Behind

Two Six Packs A Day

Written By: J.D. King

Just Two Six Packs A Day

Just two six packs a Day
Will Take My Pain Away
Old Habits Seem to Stay
One bottle at a time my memories fade

Just two six packs a day
will drown my bitter tears
Just one Dozen Beers
All I need is two six packs a day

I'll be right here
just drinkin' till you call
With my two good friends
Tears and Alcohol

Just two six packs a day
Will help me help myself
cause you put me on the shelf
All I need is two six packs a day

Way Down deep inside the glass
is where I go to forget the past
further down I journey in
till my mind is gone with the wind

Just two six packs a day
will take my pain away
old habits seem to stay
one bottle at a time my memories fade

Just two six packs a day
untill you come on back
I'm on my second pack
All I need is two six packs a day

Two six packs a day
I'm on my way to
The exit door
from crying more
and all night drinkin' I
Wake up lying on the floor
