'J. Blackfoot' is a nickname John Colbert picked up during his boyhood years in Memphis, Tennessee. He broke into the music business at age nineteen as lead singer of a new line-up of The Barkays, whose original members had died in the plane crash that also killed Otis Redding.

Isaac Hayes and David Porter (famed for their Sam & Dave productions) then recruited Blackfoot to sing lead in a new vocal group, The Soul Children (who scored 15 R&B hits between 1968 and 1978).

After the group split up, Blackfoot began his career as a solo artist, produced by Stax colleagues Homer Banks and Chuck Brooks. Success came with the R&B smash 'Taxiī followed by 'Just One Lifetime.íĎ

'U-Turn,' released in 1996, is an exemplary Banks and Brooks production that shows off Blackfoot at his best. Go-to tracks include: U-TURN, SUNSHINE LADY, and the gorgeous ballad I'M LEAVING NOW.
