John J Presley is an English gent with a penchant for fuzz. Sonically a modern day Tom Waits with a full back catalogue of Kills records, and a nod to the songwriting mastery of Nick Cave. It is a story of breaking the mould, a love affair with tone, a strict discipline and desire to create something a bit different.
Some say think Jack White meets Tom Waits. We say it is its own beast. Alongside the unmistakable guit ar tone of Presley are driving bass lines from a Fender Rhodes, warm vocal harmonies and thick drones from their harmonium.
John and his band have already been on tour with the likes of the Jim Jones Revue on their last UK tour and shared stages with Band of Skulls, Wet Nuns, Dolomite Minor, TOY and Joe Gideon and the Shark to name a few.
Prior to announcement, new single Left has received radio support from Zane Lowe (Next Hype), Jen and Ally BBCR1 Introducing and John Kennedy XFM (X-Posure Big One).
