A blues man born deep in the heart of Texas, Justin James Bridges plays music from the soul and doesn't know any other way. Self-taught by listening to legends like Jimi Hendrix, Muddy Waters, Lightnin' Hopkins, and The Doors, JJB's distinctive picking style and fret work are reminiscent of earlier times in American music.

JJB takes dirty Southern blues, rock, funk, soul, folk, and hip-hop and makes it his own, Texas-style. One of JJB's early projects, Leprechaun Theory-a Texas rock trio-played SXSW in 2008 and 2010. As a member of the Houston Blues Society, JJB felt inspired to go professional when blues drummer Jackie Grey told him, "If you wanna get good at the blues, you gotta pay your bills with it." Three months later in January 2011, JJB hit the road with the "Hang on for the Ride" album tour, ending up in Portland, Oregon.

Now based in Portland, JJB has played Hempstalk three years in a row, Seattle Hempfest, opened for Makana, and did a twenty-show Western states tour in March of 2013. In fall of 2011 the Occupy Wall Street movement swept the nation. JJB is an American Sign Language interpreter and volunteered his time to interpret for deaf activists at Occupy Portland and to make music. After the Occupy Portland camp spent over a month peacefully building community and providing social services, it was evicted in a police action at which JJB was violently attacked by the police. The attack left him in a wheelchair, unable to move his right arm and right leg. He slowly regained use of his picking hand after six months and today expects a full recovery, though he is still confined to a wheelchair.

November 13th marks the release of JJB's third album of 2013 and two years to the day since the eviction of Occupy Portland. He's joined on this album by Jimmy Free on seven-string acoustic violin, Mary Anne Sanford on flute and saxophone, and Al Maier on drums. "On My Way" takes the listener on a journey of contrasting moods and styles with an overall coherence to the ride. Kind of like taking a train through mountains and plains, sun and storm, day and night. You may not be sure where you're going, but you're on your way.
