BBottleneck Johnnn

BAll Around Man

Back in the summer of 1999 I first heard Eric Bibb’s album “Spirit & The Blues”, released on Opus 3 Records, and it totally and utterly changed the way I look upon and perform music.

Everything I did turned acoustic and I’ve stayed in the acoustic blues realm ever since.
I’d been singing the blues for a long time in electric settings and for me something illusive was missing. When I listened and searched back through the years I found my musical home in the old recordings from the late 1920’s and early 30’s.

The heart of my music is the genuine tone of resonator guitars, I just love the mechanically amplified sound.
