Born in the USA, alive and well in Paris, singer-songwriter JB Meldrum (aka John Meldrum) has had visions of what music can be and do. Musically his inspirations and icons are John Lennon and Martin Luther King: a rocker and a preacher, both exceptional visionaries. Using Pink Floyd’s Dark Side Of The Moon and Mozart's Magic Flute as touchstones on his unique path, JB Meldrum’s artistic journey continues to seek beauty beyond boundaries with everything he creates.
From his debut EP "No Rules Here," to his gifted guitar work, and heartfelt vocals featured on his second release, pop-folk album "Long Live Love" (as John Meldrum) to his most current release "Rail Car" part of long form musical homage to Bob Dylan, Meldrum’s mastery of structure and style are showcased, revealing an artist to be reckoned with.

In just a few short years, Artie has built an original repertoire anchored in blues and folk.
A versatile musician, he developed his technique at the Aix-en-Provence Conservatory in France before discovering the English folk music of Ben Howard, John Martyn and Nick Drake.
Artie’s evolution as a singer song writer traces its roots to Alan Lomax and the traditional American folk repertoire. Studying the masters of Mississippi blues like RL Burnside, Skip James and John Lee Hooker, Artie has developed his own unique style of playing in open tuning and virtuoso finger picking
Faithfully, and true to the genre, Artie pays homage to the great folk storytellers of the 20th century, Dylan, Johnny Cash, Guthrie, Leadbelly, Seegar and Leonard Cohen in his new original compositions.
Open to world music, his repertoire is filled with diverse inspirations, often linked by a love of poetry and simplicity. A bit nostalgic for the times of those whose shoulders upon which he stands, Artie performs alone on stage with the simple accompaniment of a rhythm suitcase, harmonica, and guitar. A modern-day Troubadour.
