J Oscar Bittinger writes & plays modern folk that pops
Traditional styles mix with messy modern sounds, the city smooth gets blended with the rural rough. Smart and soulful songs with an uplift – “this is happening now.”
Though the setting may be contemporary, in the past made present, or imagining some future, J Oscar’s lyrics are poetry like that of plain spoken folk. The tales and talk are carried along on melodies that sound traditional one moment, then move to something more pop and modern the next.

From a Song

High Summer – Too warm in the kitchen – To sit and listen to the radio
Night comin’ – You wipe the sweat from your neck
That you get – Even when you’re moving slow
On a hot night – On a hot night – Shadows turn to mist – On a hot night like this
