With the release of Modern Beauty, the music of Jim Thorpe's multitalented singer/songwriter John David Ambrose is in the limelight with seven original blues/rock tracks. Ambrose wrote, sang lead and back-up, played drums and a variety of guitars, as well as mixed all tracks on the album.

What a difference three years has made-for until the age of 16, Ambrose had no connection with music. Growing up with his mom, not having known his dad, Ambrose was a loner, prone to trouble-which caused him to be bounced around through the local private, public, and alternative schools.
