Texas has always been a hotbed 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 class.
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, the late Jimmy LaFave, Eliza Gilkyson, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Joe Ely, Delbert Mcclinton, Marcia Ball and many more.
As the winner of the Texas Music Awards "Producer of the Year" in April 2012, John has become known as a first-rate producer, producing CD's for a number of artists nationwide.
There’s always a lot of good energy at his shows. One minute you can hear a pin drop, and the next it's a jam. Whether he leads you through songs such as “White Freightliner” and Ray Charles’ “Unchain My Heart”, the deep groove funky gumbo of “Cissy Strut” or his own unique material, he makes evident, that there is no end to reinvention. He tours as duo or with larger groups.
