He will perform in a solo capacity with just his electrifying guitar skills, commanding voice and stomping foot for accompaniment, to help promote and showcase his first ‘Solo Acoustic’ album ‘His Other Side’ which will be officially released on 27th February.
John’s Rock’n’Roll calibre and credentials are very well established and respected in the ‘Rocking Scene’ around the world where he has performed at major festivals from Moscow, Russia to Melbourne, Australia. This solo tour will, however, allow music lovers the opportunity to see him perform in a much more stripped down and intimate environment.
During his early years with Welsh Rockabilly legends The Rimshots he recorded several albums and won a 'British Country Music Award - Album of the Year'. He also fronts Johnny Bach and the Moonshine Boozers, with former Imelda May guitarist Darrel Higham. Imelda has been a great champion of his for years, regularly inviting him to open shows for her and recently contributed her harmony backing vocals to the single ‘Waltz Around The Kitchen’. Further endorsements come from BBC 6 Music DJ’s Tom Robinson, Steve Lamacq BBC Radio Wales’ Adam Walton and music legends from Wanda Jackson to Van Morrison. He’s even done session work for D&B DJ High Contrast
With his distinctive talents and authentic conviction, he injects an urgent energy into the traditions of American roots music, rock'n'roll, country and rockabilly while keeping the original spirit alive and as exciting as ever in a tour de force performance not to be missed.
