Biography:
 
Singer/Songwriter J.Tex was born in Detroit, Michigan – growing up in Denmark. Playing instruments from the age of 6. 
Playing for a living on the roads of Europe, mainly in Italy and France in the early 90´ties.
 
The inspiration is clearly from the great vide open, “Dustville”America, but don’t get it wrong – J.Tex is truly an urban cowboy and at the age of 20 he went back to the States to search for his musical roots. J. Tex started out his journey in Nashville, Tennessee with a guitar in one hand, and a paintbrush in the other, he traveled all over the South.
 
After a few months of doing odd jobs, he found himself on a long journey through the back roads of the South. 
He had a great companion and mentor in the fire-burning carnival painter and artist “the one legged man” John Heiner.
 
This trip was a lifetime experience for J.Tex – learning the trade of art, and living the wild life on the road. When traveling long hours up and down interstate highway 75, he always found the time for writing songs when jamming with old-timers, and everyday Americans.
 
5. “House on the Hill” is the title of J-Tex and the Volunteers´ new album, released by Heptown Records on the 29th of October 2012. Behind the minimalist cover are 12 strong songs that show the band in a new and developed stage.The music is firmly rooted in American music but with a twist; a new take on a classic sound. The instrumentation is explorative and varied with a broad range of influences with a little bit of something for everyone. J-Tex and the Volunteers are still one of Denmark´s strongest, swinging and true roots music bands.
Without loosing its grounding in the tradition of American folk music, J-Tex and the Volunteers have with “House on the Hill” created a more inclusive and diverse album. “House on the Hill” is made of six home crafted songs written by J-Tex, as well as interpretations of Johnny Cash, Steve Earle and “Little feat.” Enjoy!
