Jabe Burgess was raised in Greenwood, AR. Early on Burgess was inspired by his Dad's music, 90's country, Springsteen and the Eagles. These songs inspired him to teach himself how to play his Dad's guitar at 10 years old. Burgess started writing songs in college while attending the University of Tulsa on a football scholarship where he played Quarterback for the Golden Hurricane. After his football career ended Burgess formed a band consisting of home town friends and performed all across Arkansas and Oklahoma. In 2017, Burgess began traveling back and forth between Arkansas and Nashville to write with hit songwriter, Mark Alan Springer. In June of 2018, Burgess signed a publishing deal with Springer Ink. Springer Ink's Mark Alan Springer regards Jabe as having "Great potential as a recording artist and songwriter." Springer-himself an Arkansas native-has served as President of the Nashville Songwriters Association and has written or published 17 top ten country songs, seven of them climbing to #1. Now based in Nashville, Burgess is hard at work writing and performing across the country with his band.
