Not just because he is my Uncle, but this CD is awesome! I talked with him and he is finishing up his second CD which I can bet will be awesome too. Good job, Uncle J.D. - Love you!

I love this CD!! The faster honky tonk songs are JD ALL THE WAY! There is a cool mix of Marty Robbins and Elvis (along with a touch of Hank Jr. "I don't give a shit") in his voice. I was lucky enough to play drumz for JD on the LA leg of his "Dog Eat Dog" tour for "this Town". Right now I'm listening to a live show from the King Kong in Hollywood. JD is someone that is comfortable doing anything because he is thankful for everything. Maybe because he narrowly escaped death? He has a real appreciative and cool personality, along with Vance Johnson (bass). I only wish the rest of the guys on tour were as good as the musicians on the recording. BUY THIS ALBUM...you will not be sorry!
Best wishes, Jeremy Huff

What a guy! What a voice! What a GREAT CD! I got to meet J.D. personally and found him not only a giant talent (in my bood) but a man with personality plus.

This Town, a self-produced CD released on
the Gen*u*ine Recordings label by Texan J.D. Faron finds 12 tracks
in all, 9 written solely by Faron with the driving "Tennessee
Train" co-written with Tyler John. Rich Young lends "Lucky
Me" and Flatt/Scruggs' "A Hundred
Years From Now" is given an up-tempo country edge with the
inclusion of some superb dobro playing from The East Side Flash who also
co-produced the album. It isn't often that we hear the use of the dobro on
country recordings today which is more usually reserved for bluegrass. It
really is cheering to see the dobro used to perfection on This
Town. Some fine authentic country music sets the mark with "It's
Here", followed by the pain and misery of "This
Town"…the album's title cut. "Hey
Baby, Sweet Baby" and "Yesterday"
are not for me which I see as a couple of throwaway tracks often found
with many albums. The album on the whole is top class with "Stolen

I saw J.D Faron last night. What a great performer. LOVE the CD. Got to your web site from his - Nice smooth voice, sounds a lot like Elvis or Marty Robbins, and he looks great in leather pants!! But the CD is pure country, and it is a rocker.

JD Faron has that "extra something", that everyone looks for in a fantastic artist!! This pure honky tonk country, as well as that wonderful traditional, we have all been waiting to hear!! JD"s music keeps your foot tapping! You just want to get up and dance to this fabulous music. What a talent! If you are a country music lover, take a listen for yourself! It doesn't get any better than this - way to go, J.D. Faron! I recommend this CD and definitely rate it as 5 star music!
