James Cisco was born in Central Illinois and currently moonlights with The Excellent Smithers among other side projects. As a baby his mother and father, both musicians, would lay him in a guitar case overnight rather than a crib as it was all they could afford. He spent his childhood attending bluegrass festivals and ragtime banjo conventions. As he grew older he took gigs across the USA playing in resorts, on paddle steamers, and in every seedy bar he could find. When he fell in love with an Australian he left the shores of his homeland and headed into the unknown taking the first shaky steps toward finding his musical soul mates.
As most musicians do, Cisco started frequenting pubs and clubs that hosted open stages in hopes of getting regular work with his mixed bag of Americana. It was one of these evenings when lightning struck with such ferocity that it left everyone’s ears ringing for months.
