John Earle Mainord

​Based in Denton, Tx, also known as "The Little D", John Earle Mainord offers a new perspective on being "Southern". While paying tribute to the southern traditions of love and appreciation for the land, hospitality, and of course, Country, Folk, and Blues music, JEM challenges the idea that being "Southern" means possessing close-minded, bigoted, or conservative ideology. Engaging his listeners with conscious ideas, and deep emotional self-evaluations, JEM carves out a new, progressive character for people of the south, in an attempt to ensure the survival of all that is beautiful about southern life.
