Moker Jarrett grew up in the coastal area of Northeast Florida. His dad was a coach and one of his coaching buddies gave Moker his nickname at around age six. Obviously it stuck like glue. The folk masses at St. Paul's were among his first guitar/vocal conquests and that has turned into a lifetime of writing and performing songs. In addition to his dad, his granny and mom were big influences of his outlook on life. My wife gives me a huge dose of support to continue writing at this level. Country has become a favorite genre of Moker's and his main co-writer, Dale Peaden from Panama City Florida shares 13 of the 17 cuts on the recently released CD "Cut This". This team shares a mix of uptempos and heartfelt tunes and is sure to be on their way to garnering a string of country hits. You'll go away humming the melodies and chorus lines and these songs draw you in and make you feel like you're right there in the story. Still performing at local festivals Moker's group "Moker Jarrett with Lucky Stiff"a Jacksonville Florida based power trio is a collection of veteran performers (Moker Jarrett from Jacksonville, guitars, vocals, & songwriter, Jim Rohl,from Cincinnatti drums, Billy Smith, from Philadelphia, bass guitar, & vocals) commited to having a good time, writing cuttable original material for the country and pop/rock markets, and stayin' true to our roots of music with a groove. Music should make your body move!
