Lay it Down
J.D. Nelson's eclectic rock stylings ramble over and through a broad range of styles, encompassing folky-rock, funky-rock, pie-eyed soul, psychedelia and even straight-ahead rawk, all filtered through J.D.'s uniquely jaundiced view of contemporary society. Although hard to pin down with simple generalizations, his songs reflect ... er, em (where are those crib sheets when you need them?).
Band/artist history
After coming up through the ranks of the Eighties power pop groups, as a member of the Los Angeles band Ground Zero, J.D. went back and woodshedded through the early Nineties honing his chops, only to re-emerge in 1998 and record his first solo album, "Supernova". Recorded in Burbank, California at Garage Mahal Studios, it allowed J.D. to flex his production wings... In 2001, J.D. decided to get back to live performing, and became a founding member of surf-rock meisters, Electric Swordfish. After the wave crashed against the shore, J.D. began earnestly learning the art of audio engineering, and his latest recordings were made using Sonar software in his home studio.
