JD McPherson is a Broken Arrow, OK-based singer-songwriter, filmmaker, and visual artist. His album, Signs & Signifiers (originally released by Hi-Style Records in 2010, and re-released by Rounder last year) is an album that fuses equal parts classic rock and roll, rhythm and blues, and rockabilly, with the man's own unique charismatic swagger. The video for the single, "North Side Girl" exploded, and JD has been off and running ever since. One of the most enjoyable rock n roll records to be widely released last year, Signs & Signifiers is a record that gets your fingers tapping, feet stomping, and face grinning.
I recently had the opportunity to speak with JD McPherson regarding his many modes of artistic expression, including the making of Signs & Signifiers.
