JD Outlaw is from many different hometowns in Alabama. He has played shows all over the country. Montgomery AL, Birmingham AL, Tampa FL, Nashville TN, Key West FL, Dayton OH, Erie PA, North Conway NH, Boston MA just to name a few. JD Outlaw has also worked in studio with Guest House Studios, Eclectic AL, as well as currently finished his debut album with Rocking Horse Studio in Pittsfield NH that ...
released on May 21st 2011.
Growing up in the heart of Dixie, his style was developed while listening to his mother's radio playing traditional country music and over hearing it while in the pasture. JD Outlaw's music also comes from growing up in the grunge/ post grunge era of rock. So from his style and music to his personal outlook on life he takes a "real" feel approach.
Life has handed JD Outlaw many different opportunities to create songs that convey how others feel in their lives. He feels "Everyone has felt pain, or love, and the void of being in
between" which in part is his inspiration to write his life story. JD Outlaw bleeds his life into these songs for people to feel his connection to their pain and love. His music reflects these exact emotions from Hank style driven pedal steel, up beat tempo Alabama love songs, to the over stimulating visual imaging of Alice in Chains and the rawness of a good outlaw Waylon tune. In other words his music is about heartbreak, love, extreme sadness, as well as overwhelming happiness. JD Outlaw's music is also contributed by being proud of your roots, and last but not least a good moonshine.

Hear what others have to say about this artist!
"Cobrette Bardole is an interesting instrumental musicians who's music is layered and features a lot of nifty ins and outs that make for a tasty overall composition. His songs feature a lot of down to earth parts with touches of jazz magic. His songs are well thought out and the structures tend to be very interesting, however at times I feel like he could do with some vocals to add a bit of spice. Overall though Bardole clearly knows what he is doing and crafts masterpieces that meld together gently forming a swooping sound that can carry away the listener or simply gently caress the ears. Something for a quiet day when you need some reassurance Cobrette Bardole is a pleasure to listen to and something all acoustic and rock fans will enjoy!" -Matt Bacon of "Two Guys Metal Reviews"

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jim Suhler (born December 30, 1960 in Dallas, Texas) is an American Texas Blues guitarist. Suhler has been playing professionally since the 1980s and has performed with a variety of Blues legends that include George Thorogood, Johnny Winter, AC/DC, Buddy Whittington, Billy F. Gibbons, Joe Bonamassa, Elvin Bishop, and Buddy Guy along with many other notable musicians. He resides in Dallas, Texas and plays locally in and around Texas' major cities, especially Dallas/Fort Worth with his own band, "Jim Suhler & Monkey Beat", in addition to the remainder of the United States and Canada.
The current Monkey Beat lineup includes: Shawn Phares on keyboards/accordion (joined in 2000); Carlton Powell on bass guitar/vocals (co-founding member) and Beau Chadwell on drums/percussion (joined in 2011). Former members include Jimmy Morgan and Paul Hollis (both on drums).
 Early life and early career
Jim Suhler was born in Dallas, Texas on December 30, 1960. He grew up in the Lakewood area of Dallas, Texas and attended Hillcrest High School. His first exposure to music was by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and other British Invasion bands on Dallas AM top 40 radio station KLIF in the 1960s. His major influences at that point were Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers Band, ZZ Top, Johnny Winter, Led Zeppelin and Rory Gallagher among others. During these formative years, Suhler was exposed to Texas guitar talent performing in local North Texas nightclubs like Bugs Henderson, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Anson Funderburgh, Jimmie Vaughan and Rocky Hill. Suhler played in an array of forgotten cover and original bands during these years, initially backing other vocalists or guitarists. He knew at an early age he definitely wanted to be a musician (he started playing guitar at the age of 14) but it wasn't until a trip to Mississippi where he met the legendary artist, Son Thomas, that he knew for certain that he wanted to play the Blues. Suhler said of this visit, "He was really gracious - he let me come in and we played together. It was really special."
Suhler's first bar band was called "Stray Cats". They played a few gigs in 1980 at St. Christopher's, one of Stevie Ray Vaughan's Dallas venues at that time. Suhler played guitar for the hard rock band "Overlord" in 1985, playing Dallas’ punk/underground venues including the Twilite Room, Theater Gallery and also Nairobi Room. Suhler then co-fronted the Road Hogs from 1986-1988, with harmonica player/vocalist Memo Gonzalez, recording a long lost 45rpm for Pee Wee Records, “Dogged & Driven b/w “Hot & Bothered”. Suhler was playing a much more traditional form of blues than he is now known for, much in the style of T-Bone Walker, Magic Sam and B.B. King. Following the demise of the Road Hogs, Suhler’s next band was The Homewreckers. This lineup played together from 1989-1991, recording a cassette only release called “Hit It & Git It”. It was during this period Suhler was a DJ at Dallas’ KNON radio station, hosting a three hour weekly blues show called “Radio Mojo” every Tuesday night (1987-1990).
 Monkey Beat and George Thorogood & The Destroyers
While later playing a Homewreckers set at a Memphis, Tennessee club called Huey's, he was discovered by George Thorogood, eventually joining the Destroyers in 1999. Thorogood was impressed with Suhler’s playing, arranging and songwriting skills, and consequently the two struck up a friendship. After the Homewreckers imploded in mid 1991, Suhler formed power trio Monkey Beat, with drummer Paul Hollis and bassist/vocalist Carlton Powell. At that time, Suhler sent a four song demo to Thorogood's producer/engineer Terry Manning, after Thorogood told Suhler, “Terry Would Love You Guys”. Manning was indeed impressed with Monkey Beat, agreeing to engineer and release an album on Manning’s fledgling label, Lucky Seven records. The albums "Radio Mojo" (1992) and "Shake" (1995) were the result of this collaboration. Several tours opening for Thorogood & the Destroyers across North America in 1993-95 followed. Thorogood also had Suhler appear with him on numerous radio shows and make in-store appearances with him to get Monkey Beat more exposure. Suhler became a full time member of George Thorogood & The Destroyer's in 1999 and has appeared on every release by the band since then, playing lead/rhythm guitar, as well as co-writing some of the band's material.
After the recording of the Mike Morgan/Jim Suhler CD "Let The Dogs Run", Monkey Beat went to the legendary Compass Point Studios in Nassau, Bahamas to again record with Manning. “Shake” soon followed, which to this day is Suhler’s darkest, most hard rock record. The lyrics were fueled by a divorce that Suhler was going through at the time of the writing and conception of the music. For the next few years, Jim Suhler & Monkey Beat toured throughout the United States and Europe, playing clubs, theaters and festivals for an ever burgeoning fan base.
“Bad JuJu”, which was produced by noted producer Jim Gaines  (Stevie Ray Vaughan, Carlos Santana) was easily the most fully realized Monkey Beat album to date, & released by Lucky Seven records in 2001. Texas rock ‘n roll, Zydeco, Tex-Mex music, Hip Hop & Blues influences were all evident on the songs on this album.
Monkey Beat's latest album, “Tijuana Bible”, was released in 2009. It was recorded in Nashville with Tom Hambridge producing, & includes guest artists Elvin Bishop, Jimmy Hall and Joe Bonamassa. “Tijuana Bible” includes cover’s by Rory Gallagher, AC/DC, and Elvin Bishop, as well as 13 of Suhler's originals. The album was nominated for the Blues Music Award in the category of best blues-rock recording.
 Later career
Also on Suhler’s resume is scoring the PBS documentary “Larry vs. Lockney”, and having his compositions used in major motion picture releases and television worldwide. In 2002, Suhler fulfilled a lifelong dream by playing two shows with AC/DC during their Stiff Upper Lip Tour, in Helsinki, Finland and Hamburg, Germany.
Suhler has also played publicly onstage with Les Paul, James Cotton, Hank Williams, Jr. Duke Robillard, Peter Wolf, Willie Nelson, Irma Thomas, Dr. John, Pinetop Perkins, Lazy Lester, Steve Miller, Elvin Bishop, Son Seals, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Johnny Rivers, Joe Bonamassa, Cross Canadian Ragweed and others. Suhler also appears on the 2008 Elvin Bishop album, “The Blues Rolls On”.
Suhler co-produced an album in 2010 for another Texas-Based Blues Band, Jason Elmore & Hoodoo Witch entitled "Upside Your Head"  which received widespread acclaim in the Blues genre. He also contributed consulting/performance work on Hoodoo Witch's second album entitled "Tell You What"  which was released on March 19, 2013.
 Personal life
In 2002, Suhler and Lauri Miles were married by the Reverend Willy G, aka ZZ Top guitarist Billy F Gibbons in Houston, Texas. Gibbons became ordained in order to perform the ceremony and has subsequently married several other couples. In 2007, Suhler had his divorce decree from the aforementioned wedding “blessed” by Texas humorist/writer/musician/politician Kinky Friedman.
Also that year, Suhler's daughter Brittany was killed in an automobile accident. Suhler started the Brittany Suhler Memorial Foundation in her honor. The acoustically driven “Dirt Road” was released by Topcat records in 2002, shortly after his daughter's death.
Monkey Beat (denoted with *) and collaborations with other artists:
Just a few months ago, very few people outside Kansas City, Missouri knew there was a young, dynamic musician named Samantha Fish getting ready to take the world by storm. In fact, it's not all that long ago that the 22-year-old singer/guitarist first discovered the blues and started paying her dues on that city's local scene. With Runaway, her solo debut, she now breaks out big time, announcing herself as a newcomer to be reckoned with.
The album's ten tracks - nine of them originals - incorporate "all the sounds I grew up with, with my own spin," says Fish, who seems to have spent her formative years in the Midwest soaking up a vast array of musical styles. Runaway features sharp-edged, riff-driven blues ("Down in the Swamp"), breakneck boogies ("Runaway"), smoky, late-night jazz ("Feelin' Alright") as well as hints of the sultry 70s hard rock of Ann and Nancy Wilson and the 4/4 ruggedness of the Rolling Stones. Throughout, Fish demonstrates astonishing range and depth as a songwriter. Her vocals are cool, confident and nothing less than beguiling.
Backing her on this eclectic collection of modern electric blues is the same crack team that first convened for the making of Girls With Guitars. That collaboration with fellow female artists Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde, released earlier this year, already showed that Fish refuses to be intimidated, even when working with musicians more experienced than herself. "They are incredibly talented and creative, so it made for fun sessions," she says of the well-oiled studio band heard on Runaway. Jamie Little, one of the UK's most in-demand drummers, reunites with bassist Cassie Taylor to give the record plenty of rhythmic thump. Producer Mike Zito, a St. Louis native and 2010 Blues Music Award winner, adds thick, meaty electric guitar on most cuts. "Mike and I have known each other for a few years now, so he knew the sound and style I was after. He did a great job of taking ideas and giving them direction in the studio setting."
In between making these first two albums, Fish spent a month on the road with Cassie Taylor and Dani Wilde for the first leg of the year-long Blues Caravan Tour. It gave her the valuable opportunity to road-test the material heard on Runaway to a discriminating audience. With an exciting new debut album now in her back pocket, the tour continues throughout the summer and into the fall of 2011, touching down at many European and North American festivals and even taking to the seas on the Legendary Rhythm & Blues Cruise in October.
