In 2009, J.D moved from Charleston, S.C to Monrovia, California with his wife and children. Having left everything that he had ever known behind to make a fresh start in a new and unfamiliar place; J.D looked to find local musicians and start a new band in Los Angeles. In the early part of 2010, he found them. After posting several ads looking to play with other musicians/artists, his calls were answered by Joe Mesisca and Scott Jones. All three of them knew there was a magical connection between them. After a few months, Scott invited aboard a rhythm guitarist, Jason Harland and soon to follow was bass player Daniel Tucker. They all became what is now known as J.D Tharpe and The Foothill Billy Band. For the past year, the band has been all around the Southern Los Angeles area performing and committing their time to a number of great causes and charities; helping raise money for local schools to donating their proceeds from their first original recording to the children of St. Jude Hospital... the band has a passion about their craft that anyone could surely notice for the first time. You can read the bio on each member of the band by visiting their website (
