John Colbert acquired the nickname of J. Blackfoot when he was a child in Memphis, because he used to walk in bare feet on the sidewalk. In 1965, while spending some time in Tennessee State Penitentiary in Nashville for car theft, he met Johnny Bragg, the founder of the Prisonaires vocal group.
In the late 1960, he signed up to Stax Records, and joined a singing group called The Soul Children, which existed for 10 years and had 15 U.S. soul/R&B chart hits.
