Shine Eye Landing coming soon
Billy Jeter is a third-generation Arkansan with deep roots in the Arkansa Delta. The Jeters have been working on the land and the family farm since 1910. Another branch of the family comes from the Ozark Mountains in west central Arkansas, adding to the creative mix of painters, writers, and folk musicians that populate the Jeter lineage.
A son of the Delta, Billy Jeter's music has been shaped by the folk rock and storytelling melodies of the 1960s and 70s. Listeners will recognize the influencers of storytelling skills of Hunter and Garcia, The Band and Bob Dylan, the social conscientiousness of John Lennon, the folk music of Dr. Ralph Stanley and Gillian Welch. Listen, as well, for the blues influences reminiscent of Big Bill Broonzy (who lived near the Jeter farm) and the real life lyrical style of Rodney Crowell.
