JC was a free lance drummer in West Texas and sat in with bands that played everything from rock to polka and all that’s in-between. But he now concentrates on songwriting and guitar.

JC writes and performs what he calls Mesquite-Flavored Americana, songs with humor, heart, & grit. He is a former President of The Portland (Oregon) Songwriters Assoc and has won recognition from several song contests including BILLBOARD, The Dallas Songwriters Assoc, and others.

Press Info

"JC Tubbs reminds us of what songwriting should be. He transports us to the places where his stories take place with a steady easy hand. The fact that he hails from the same state as Townes Van Zandt, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Mac Davis is no coincidence. His songs have that same southwestern grit and tequila sunrise quality."
-Eric Hester, performing singer/songwriter/producer/instructor

"JC Tubbs is an American archetype himself, one of the last bastions of the old country music genre.."
-Andre Hagestedt, The Oregonian


?JC. I finally had a chance to here your CD......good stuff..keep up the good work.?
-Lloyd Maines, legendary Lubbock/Austin musician/songwriter/producer (Dixie Chicks)
