As far back as he can recall, his memory is filled with treasured visits with his grandfather. His Granddad played the guitar and the fiddle, a sound that crept into Jarrod’s very existence. That musical influence has always managed to stay close to his heart. As a young adult he began to try his hand at song writing, but never really felt any degree of accomplishment. He shifted gears a bit, and spent several years attempting to earn a living riding bulls on the professional rodeo circuit. While he has since left the dirt of the arena floor behind, that time served him well. It was his chance to experience a few hardships, injuries, and an opportunity to see parts of this wonderful nation that many others never get to see. While on “injured reserve” he picked up songwriting again. This time, with a little more maturity and a vast stock of experiences to put on paper, the writing came easy. It came from the heart and soul of Jarrod Birmingham, filtered by real life. Another thing to come out of that era was a desire to perform. What started out as a group of friends doing “barn pickings” became a bonafide band. Desire pushed harder, and the Jarrod Birmingham Band competed against thousands of contestants to take first place in the “Rising Stars Over Texas” talent search. The road would be long…but the door was open. He has been compared to Waylon, and has been told he looks like Dwight, but he is all Jarrod. Backed by a five piece band, he has honed his live show playing gigs across the southern states, often opening for a long list of Texas/Americana artists and a few products of Nashville. Many react with amazement as he walks onto the stage and changes from the artist to the entertainer. He comfortably takes the heartfelt songs of the artist and tells the listener an intense, believable story as the entertainer. Grammy nominated Producer Eric Paul says, "Jarrod Birmingham is what I consider to be the first real singer of the 21st century." Paul produced Birmingham’s freshman effort “A Waitin’ and A Wishin.’” Hailing from the Texas Gulf Coast, he is every bit a product of the Lone Star State. But that lone star state of mind means he is just about as independent as they come. While his Texas roots run deep, make no mistake, there is no “Anti-Nashville” syndrome here. Indeed Birmingham has stood on Music Row, inhaling the Nashville traditions into his lungs. But he has as well stood on mountain tops in the Rockies, and on the plateaus of the Great Plains. There is no “pre-destination” in his mind about his music. His music is about as diverse as it can be and still be called country, a point he answers well on his current album, Stages released in September of 2003. Jarrod Birmingham’s songs are steeped in realism, real songs, every man songs, songs about people you know, places you’ve been, good times you’ve had and loves you’ve known. Whether a hard driving "rebel" country-rock tune, or the solitary crooning that seems to make the words hang in the air, focusing the listener's attention as they await the next word, it's like catching "lightning in a bottle." Jarrod Birmingham renders ideas into the music that creates happy, satisfied fans. He admits, with a bit of a twinkle in his eye, that he "sometimes" misses the rodeo arena. "I never really quit riding bulls," he says, "the music just sort of took over."

Two things this guy is a look alike, wannabe Dwight Yoakum, and he is terrible. Secondly the only girls there, and the only girls who were actually cheering for him were like four or five large girls who were sitting center stage. The show was just borderline embarassing. Come on dude, seriously!

My vote is for Jarrod. A true honky tonker who really can't be compared to the opera voice or stylings of Kevin Fowler. At least Jarrod has what they call 'style.' You can dance to every song and it's honest music. Jarrod is a candle holder for true country music first and foremost, and he doesn't have to preach in order to get his idea across. Looking forward to his rise in the music biz.

The second coming of Waylon Jennings. This gentleman WILL be a huge star. Buy this record.

Fowler junior but without the charm. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate his commitment to the honky-tonk sound in an era where more and more of the Texas Country artists are sounding the same. I just can’t get past the paper thin “aww shucks” veneer and a borderline disregard to the craft of songwriting. It’s not that they’re bad songs, it’s just that they’re not good songs. I really like the sound. I wanted it to be better. It just wasn’t. Mediocre with a chance to improve, I give it a 3.

Saw this guy for the first time on the ski trip in Steamboat Colorado this year...Hands down one of the best bands making the rounds today. Haven't heard the CD yet, but if his live show is awesome. Support this band! They kick ass.
