Twisted South is proud to welcome John the Conqueror this week. Hailing from Jackson, Mississippi AND Philadelphia PA, this band blends thier smooth fusion into the blues of the future.
When a Mississippi blues man walks into a big city bar and has a drink,
starts on a downward spiral of sex and drugs to the soundtrack of
Nirvana, Black Keys and Queens of the Stone Age, John the Conqueror is born. Effortlessly fusing early blues lyrical styles, pentatonic mastery and the riff heavy sensibility of the early 70's, John the Conqueror is an old soul in a new world while being a fresh breath in a room of stagnant air. Singer/guitarist Pierre Moore and drummer Michael Gardner have been playing the blues together since their early days in the backwoods of Mississippi. After a few years in Atlanta, they managed to find their way to Philadelphia, met up with bassist Ryan Lynn and took their roots and rocked them.
John The Conqueror will be released October 16th through Alive Naturalsound R
