The folks over at BART.gov totally get why we love sharing transit stories. They’ve recently featured musician Jesse Morris, whose voice “sounds just like Johnny Cash,” one bystanders has said.
From BART.gov’s feature story:
Jesse Morris, known to many BART riders as “the punk rock Johnny Cash,” does sound uncannily like the country music icon, but he likes to mix it up sometimes with a little punk from the Ramones and the Clash. He has played in stations for years and is perhaps one of the best known BART buskers, part of a tradition of musicians playing in public places for tips, or just for the fun of it.
Read more about how Jesse got started playing music and why he plays at BART stations.
We’re not affiliated with any transit agency (of course you knew that!), but it’s great to see some love for transit stories.
Got another slice of life aboard BART? Let us know.
