Description; J.J. Cale (born John Weldon Cale, December 5, 1938 – July 26, 2013) was an American singer-songwriter, musician, and record producer, best known for his laid-back, bluesy sound and his association with the Oklahoma music scene. He was born in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and began his career in the early 1960s. He wrote and recorded a string of critically acclaimed albums throughout the 1970s and 1980s, and his music was characterized by its relaxed, grooving rhythms and Cale's distinctive guitar playing and songwriting style.

Cale's most successful songs were "After Midnight" and "Cocaine", both of which were covered by Eric Clapton and became hits for him. He was also a sought-after session musician and producer, and worked with artists such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Carlos Santana, and The Allman Brothers Band. He was known for his low-key and reclusive nature, and was often referred to as the "King of OK Music" or "Father of the Tulsa Sound". He passed away in 2013 due to a heart attack.
