JOHN J PRESLEY
John J Presley and his band have just got into the studio to record the album. That’s because the last year has been fraught with tours, live shows and a relocation.
They went out with The Jim Jones Revue on their last UK tour and shared stages with Band of Skulls, and Joe Gideon and the Shark to name a few.
Some say think Jack White meets Tom Waits. We say it is its own beast. Alongside the unmistakable guitar tone of Presley are driving bass lines from a Fender Rhodes, warm vocal harmonies and thick drones from their harmonium.
If you need a direction…think The Kills, think Tom Waits, think Nick Cave, but do go and experience this in it’s own right.

“Without doubt one of the most interesting talented musicians out there at the moment..something quite seductive about it…” Alex Baker, Kerrang! Radio
“If Bukowski was to join a band of our time I think it’d be this one. The vocals remind you of Tom Waits or Johnny Cash, while the guitars have the same drive, as Jack White’s or the Black Keys do, only much dirtier. Plus there is a very strong folk element to it, which makes it just that much more intriguing and a bit poetic, whilst never losing its energy.
