J.C.spires in the Pasadena weekly - September 10, 2012
Thank YOU! ******************************* - December 27, 2011
The J.C.Spires Band would like to invite you to come out for our last gig of the year this Wed. night Dec.28th @ Jax in Glendale. We'll be onstage from 7 to 11. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the great support you have given us this year. It has been a great period for the band. In 2011 we took major strides forward in the recording project we have been working on. We also welcomed in the talent, grace and beauty of Jessica Chanse on vocals, and added some new originals to our live show. We will continue to bring to the stage and the studio a "spare, dramatic, and understated" sound by sticking to our core principles of "time, tone, passion and silence". As we blast into the year of 2012 we pray for all of God's blessings to be with each and every one of you!

J.C.Spires Band at Conway Recording Studio! - December 29, 2008
Conway Recording has been the birthplace of many legendary sessions over the years and it's not hard to see why. It's an absolutely first class studio designed to bring out the best in anyone whose serious about their art.
We thank God for His generous blessing in helping this fortuitous opportunity come our way. We also thank our friends who have prayed for our endeavor, and John Molino whose hard work made this possible. Last but not least a special thanks to our Executive Producer, without whom much of this would not have happened.
John Molino steps in as Producer. - October 19, 2007
We were fortunate to catch John on the heels of his departure from Capital Records and the timing couldn't have been more perfect.
In addition to 27 years of experience working as a studio engineer with some of the biggest names in the industry, John has brought a great work ethic
and an intuitive perception
for capturing the essence of J.C.'s unique artistry. We look forward to a long and productive creative relationship.
Angela Carole Brown and Margaret Love grace the stage with the J.C.Spires Band - March 6, 2007
As if that wasn't enough we then had Margaret Love, with her gregarious personality, and powerful R & B pipes come up and croon on the great Leiber- Stoller rock and roll composition "Kansas City".
It was a special night for all who were there.

New Recording Studio! - October 26, 2006
Began the first guitar over-dubs today on a new track titled "Bring Her Down Boogie" and it's the hottest, rockingest song we've ever done.
Have begun pre-production work with the great cellist, Peggy Baldwin ( E.L.O.), and of course Dan Graziani on violin.
One final note, the new working title for this dynamic upcoming album is now "Barstow".
" Farewell to a Rose" working title to the new album. - June 16, 2006
J.C.Spires on the radio in Europe! - June 16, 2006
blues program in Longwy, France, and Przemek Draheim of American Blues program in Poland, have both recently contacted me with much enthusiasm about playing "Deep" on their shows. These broadcasts together are heard in Eastern France, Belgium, Luxembourg, South Germany, and Poland.
Also have seen sales of "Deep" in Engalnd and on the East Coast of the USA. Encouraging signs as we work to complete the new record!

In the Studio! - May 19, 2006
From the results of the initial tracks we've laid down, all I can say is it was worth the wait.
With Tyler Pedersen on acoustic bass, Ron Felton on drums and percussion, and myself on acoustic guitar we tracked ten songs in one long session.
Recording at the home studio of my dear friend, and sound engineer extraordinaire, Daniel McCoy, turned out to be a revelatory experience.
We recorded live, acoustically, in a home living room, with no headphones. Just a whole lot of soul, and more than a liitle yankee ingenuity.
Yes, there's alot of work still to be done, but if life has taught me anything so far, it's that patience is a virtue. Stay tuned for updates as things progress!
