Bio

JT Reno learned the ropes behind the scenes as well as the excitement of being in front, on center stage, as a band director, back up vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and lead singer. JT had opportunities to tour with Country bands and front bands himself. JT gained valuable experience on the road touring, wearing different hats, which taught him to be well rounded in the nature of this business & the commitment it takes to get the job done, and done right.

I have many original tunes and am very comfortable playing in front of a large crowd or intimate venue setting. My CD titled Lights of Home was recorded in Nashville. My music is also being played internationally.

JT discovered early on, that his true passion is music. As a kid in Colorado, JT took guitar lessons from the popular and talented Mel Bay, and he said, “While taking guitar lessons, music spoke to my soul”. You will hear JT’s beautiful, rich tenor voice and hear for yourself how this singer can sing any style of music and sound amazing. The doors opened for JT, and soon he was introduced to Pete Bordonali, a successful musician and producer. Bordonali is a veteran musician who has played guitar on many major recording sessions, including hit artists like Barbara Striesand, Barry Manilow, Kenny Rogers, Lee Greenwood, Barbara Mandrel, and so many others. Pete worked with JT and produced his current “Lights of Home” album at Bayou Studios, in Nashville, TN. Prior to coming to Nashville, JT was part of a Christian rock group featuring all original music, in Tucson, Arizona. The music had a message with practical advice for everyday living, inspired by the messages found in the Bible. The music Rocked and was followed by thousands of people weekly! JT moved on to becoming the band director for a new church in Central Tucson where he loved sharing God’s message through contemporary music. JT had the privilege of singing with his friend and Pastor Toby Newnum, a very talented songwriter, singer and performer. Toby generously offered for JT to use, record, and perform many of his songs. Some of those songs had become the foundation of JT’s “Lights of Home” album." Lights of Home” is a mix of Southern Country Rock, traditional Country, and a couple of R&B songs to add some change to the mix. While promoting the cd, a Sony/BMG producer in Poland picked up one of the songs off the album, “Howdumdooya,” and it was distributed in Europe in a CD called "Country Tour 2". JT is featured alongside such greats as Johnny Cash, Lynn Anderson, Willie Nelson! JT was also invited on a USO tour by the Armed Forces Entertainment Group, and he’s ready to go and share the music across the country!
Recently, you would have found JT paired up with James Paycheck (of Johnny Paycheck Fame) in Ireland getting together a band for an upcoming world tour. While there, JT performed in local venues around the small town of L'Derry.
