Biography

From Blind Lemon Jefferson to T-Bone Walker and Charlie Christian, to Eric Johnson, Jimmie and Stevie Ray Vaughan, and ZZ Top's Billy Gibbons, the Lone Star State has always been a hot bed of string-bending guitar wizards. Though he is far too self-effacing to ever put himself in such august company, John Inmon fits seamlessly into that six-string continuum. His peers know John as one of the finest guitarists in Austin, Texas (and, considering the competition, that is high praise indeed); his fans know him as the signature guitar style that has, at one time or another, propelled the music of Townes van Zandt, Jimmy LaFave, Eliza Gilkyson,  Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, Delbert Mcclinton, Marcia Ball, Omar and the Howlers, the Lost Gonzo Band, Michael Martin Murphy, Keith Sykes, Rusty Weir, Bobby Bridger and many more. As winner of the Texas Music Awards Producer if the Year in April 2012, John has become known as a first rate producer, producing CD's for a number of artists nationwide. "I've been making records since the 60's, so I know how to make records and I believe it's my duty to pass along some of what I've learned to new artists. Plus, I get a kick out of it- it's what I do."
