Jesse Ray Carter was raised on a farm near Roanoke Virginia. At the age of twenty after losing his job as a mechanic he traveled to New York City where he lived on the streets before befriending blues legend John Hammond whom he based his style on. Ten Years later performing in venues from theaters to dive bars JRC has everything it takes to entertain be it solo or with his band which usually consists of upright bass & drums. In 2014 Carter chose to close his automotive restoration business in which he had invested 6 years to concentrate on his music full time once again. Carter lives the blues but has the grease on his hands to rock n' roll! Expect big things to come from him in the near future.
