As a young child, traditional country, outlaw country, and bluegrass were always on the radio, but not by choice! His teenage years were corrupted by the hair-band craze, which is when Jimmy Clay first picked up a guitar to play and sing. However, straight out of high school, the country music of the early 90′s brought him back to his roots. While winning singing contests all over Michigan in his early twenties, Jimmy began his prolific songwriting and has been writing and fronting bands ever since.
Todd Hunt, Clare, MI
Todd picked up a guitar when he was six years old, and hasn’t put it down since! He went on to play in various rock bands all over Michigan early in his career before finding his way to country music. He has mastered instruments other than the guitar, including pedal steel and mandolin, all of which add his distinctive sound to Bullwhip’s country/rock edge.
As a late bloomer to guitar, picking it up at age 17, Ken started out with friends in various garage bands and playing out occasionally. Then after some time off from the music scene to start a family, he returned to playing bass guitar with a vengeance!
Playing drums since age six, Jeff has performed for countless events and in a multitude of bands, but country music has always been in the forefront of his musical tastes.
