About

John Lafayette Ramey is a busy man. If you manage to catch a beer with him at one of his shows, it’s probably his longest vacation in memory. John stays constantly in the spotlight at some of Southern California’s most celebrated roots rock homes. You can see him at places like the The Redwood, the Cinema Bar, and the Press. John likes to get out of town too, having played music in places like Tapei, Taiwan, Independent Samoa, and Missoula, Montana. People say his music sounds like, well, John Lafayette Ramey. But John thinks his sound falls somewhere close to Tom Petty and Willie Nelson. John released his second album Reminiscent Killings Of The Heart in August of 2012. John’s debut album Flying Blind garnered a devoted following after its 2006 release. John’s got a pretty interesting day job, too. He works as a sports broadcaster. John is the play-by-play voice of UCLA baseball and UC Riverside basketball. Some of John’s other passions include reading, travel, rural Mexico, historical LA, aviation, and motorcycles.
