b. 7 March 1954, Belen, New Mexico, USA. Jaramillo became interested in music as a child and his father gave him his first guitar when he was 12. He began performing locally and eventually formed his Brown River Road Band, with which he played a residency at an Albuquerque nightclub. He has acted as opener for several artists including Loretta Lynn and Faron Young. In 1988, he gained some indie chart successes with ‘Face To The Wall’, ‘Jeanie Loved The Roses’ and his self-penned ‘Honky Tonk Cinderella’. His recordings generally featured a mixture of down-to-earth honky tonk, bar room ballads and Tex-Mex, while his bilingual talent, like that of Johnny Rodriguez, sometimes gave rise to Spanish as well as English vocals.
