about

He jammed on guitar and keyboard for the pioneering rock-funk-ska band Fishbone for eight years and has toured and recorded with artists as acclaimed and diverse as Miles Davis, Eminem, Dr. Dré, Nikka Costa, Bruce Hornsby and Everlast. His 2003 self-titled debut as a frontman earned raves in the New Yorker, Wall Street Journal, and Rolling Stone.

Now John “JB” Bigham, aka The Soul of John Black, turns his prodigous talents to The Good Girl Blues, a “funky blend of blues, soul, and rock” that merges rootsy, bluesy fundamentals with modern soul, funk, and hip-hop influences.

From “The Hole,” a wailing 21st century re-imagination of a 100-year-old field holler, to the old-school, uptown soul vibe of “I Got Work”, to “Slipin’ and Slidin,’” an instrumental with a mysterious backbeat highlighted by DJ Phizz Ed on turntables, Bigham’s sly, intimate vocals and unique guitar technique on acoustic, electric and slide provide the unforgettable groove.

Track Name: The Hole
I went down in the hole
to see what I could see, when I got down in the hole wasn't nobody but me
I went down in the hole
to see what I could see, when I got down in the hole wasn't nobody but me
down in the hole
down in the hole
down in the hole
down in the hole

I went down in that hole
down so deep
I lost my soul
I had to find my way out
it was dark and cold
nobody could hear me shout
I'm down in the hole
I'm down in the hole

I was down in the hole
down in the hole

I went down in the hole
to see what I could see, when I got down in the hole wasn't nobody but me,
I went down in the hole
to see what I could see, but
when I got down in the hole wasn't nobody but me,
I'm down in the hole I'm down in the hole

I was
down in the hole
down in the hole

I went down
I went down
I went down down down
when I got down in the hole wasn't nobody but me wasn't nobody but me
when I got down in the hole wasn't nobody but me wasn't nobody but me
down in the hole
I'm down in the hole
I was down in the hole
down in the hole
down in the hole
Track Name: The Moon Blues
look in the sky
the full moons a sign
something is coming my way
well
I've been so blue
I hope that it's you
and I
hope that you're coming to stay
but like that moon up above
the glow from from your love
it's gone at the end of the night
well
don't get me wrong
I want to hold on
the way that you do me ain't right
like the moon
shining on me
making me feel all right
like the moon
a mystery
and you're gone
with the morning light
here comes the sun
the moon starts to run
just like you're running from me
well I
won't be the one
chasing you down girl
you should be running to me
like the moon
shining on me
you're making me feel all right
like the moon
a mystery
and you're gone
with the morning light
like the moon
shining on me
you're making me feel all right
like the moon
a mystery
and you're gone
you're gone
with the morning light

Track Name: Good Girl
Good Girl
not just any old body
gonna rock my world
I need a good girl
I need a good girl
to roll with me

I need a good girl
to help me see
I 'm blind and on the street
I ain't hardly got nothing to eat
I ain't gonna take
just any old thang

to hop on this love train

not just any old body
gonna rock my world
I need a good girl
I need a good girl

gonna rock my world
I need a good girl

not just any old body
gonna rock my world
I need a good girl

I'm not trying to hold you to forever
but just as long as it feels good let's stay together, together
Fire

for you
since I was born
tonight I want your fire
to keep me warm

I'm not trying to hold you to forever

Fire
tonight I want your fire
tonight I want your fire

Track Name: One Hit
One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.
She took, one hit too many my lord, one too many this time,
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.

One hit too many my lord, now she land on the side of the road.
Land in a pool of her own drool,
she ain't nothing but a heavy load.
Well I remember the time when we used to drink wine,
dressed fine from head to toe
now she land in the gutter what a waste of good butter
wondering where the good times gone

One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.
One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.

She did one line too many my lord
now she working this side of the street
selling her stuff out on the corner
had the nerve to call it fresh me
Well I got half a mind to take her home
and wash her up good and clean
I bet she ain't had a home cooked meal
since she started on the Hollywood scene

One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.
One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.

Well I was driving down Santa Monica Way
to get a little late night snack
I pulled up on McCadden Avenue, in front of the burrito shack
I got the #1 with the rice and beans, hot sauce just to make it right
I looked over my shoulder
she was up in the corner, making love to a transvestite.

One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.
One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.
One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.
One hit too many my lord, one too many this time
She used to be fine in another life, but she had to do one more line.
Track Name: Feelin's
It's a dilemma but I think I remember my way back to the top
I think I remember where I went wrong and my song and my stage began to collapse.
I was singing bout' a good time I never had....
I had a smile but I was feelin' sad
Ain't nobody up in the kitchen cooking no more
and girl you know I'm feelin' low
since you been gone
don't you know, I'm feelin' low
Do you remember when I told you I'd do you a favor and help you pack?
Think I was delirious crazy, cause as soon as you start burning rubber I wanted you back
now ain't that crazy
I was dreaming bout' a good time I never had...
I had a smile but I was feelin' sad
Ain't nobody sleeping in the bed no more
and girl you know I'm feelin' low
since you been gone
don't you know , I'm feelin' low
don't it make you feel
don't it make you feel
don't it make you feel
don't it make you feel
when you're laying in the bed
ain't nobody to roll over on
I know it make you feel
I know it make you feel
like you wanna get down on your knees and cry
I know it make you feel
I know it make you feel
don't it
I know it make you feel
Track Name: Deez Blues
Deez Blues won't leave me alone
they follow me to my front door
Deez blues won't respect my home
don't ya know that they walk right in
in my front door
Ya know they walk right in like nobody's home
feet on the table and drinkin' my corn
all of my potatoes and chicken is gone
oh no what what's going on?
He wearin' my Sunday best
He got my brand new shoes
and my brand new vest
oh he done went to far, he done tried to jump in my cadillac car
Oh Mr. Blues won't you leave me alone
Oh get out of my get out of my home.
