Jojo Rainwater has an authentic Southern American sound, best described as Rock-n-Swampy, Blues-Rootsy, Gospel-n-Folk. He has something vivid and profound to say through his music and tales of his relatives from the early days. The American singer/guitarist was born August 16th 1962 in Memphis Tennessee not far from the muddy Mississippi river. No doubt he must have heard the sound of gospel and delta blues music in the air. Jojo’s imagination was set to writing songs by the stories of his grandma who picked cotton as a little girl in the hot Mississippi summer sun and a grandpa who hopped trains during the great depression. But his great grandmother on his father’s side was from the Ozark mountains in Arkansas, she was a ‘Rainwater’, which is Cherokee (inspired his new stage name). There was of course some Scottish and Irish mixed in.
Jojo Rainwater has been consistently getting great reactions to his Southern style music and storytelling to audiences locally and abroad.
