JT Moring is a dynamic entertainer known for incisive songs/stories and audience engagement. He performs solo on guitar or banjo, and in collaboration with a collection of San Diego County’s top musicians.

JT’s first solo album, Only Just a Man, is now up in all the places you’d expect. Read the spectacular review in the December 2021 San Diego Troubadour magazine, where we get compared to Woody Guthrie, Mississippi John Hurt, ‘Alice’s Restaurant,’ Pete Seeger AND the Weavers.

Or listen to what the fans are saying:

From the ‘burbs to the barn, to a bloody barroom, JT Moring casts a colorful bunch of characters: potlucking yuppies, hypocritical hippies, sailors, ex-slaves, gunslingers and grandparents… and boatloads of fun. Float down the imaginary waterways with JT at the musical helm, and you will discover a core message in his fun-filled fanfare for the common man:  we are all human.

JT Moring’s humility and  humanity are matched only by his talent as a raconteur, multi-instrumentalist, lyricist, vocalist and humorist. Listen carefully and you’ll find hidden gems of musical quotations and even a mention of his home town, San Diego.

Only Just a Man is an ambitious and successful anthology of original folk music and folk wisdom at its best for our times and beyond.
