Also known as "Jojo" by friends and family, James Jordan McIntyre grew up having country music a great influence to his life. He eats music for breakfast, lunch and dinner. He considers music and writing his escape-to-the-real-world thing. Music for him is the soul and heart of mankind; writing, its instrument. When he's not writing or rocking out, he enjoys dancing to the beat of music, getting lost in the great outdoors and being crazy.
