John the Conqueror Album Release 11/3 @Legendary Dobbs

When a country boy walks into a big city bar and sits down for a drink-
When a choir boy throws his robe to the floor of an hourly motel-
When a Mississippi bluesman first hears rock and roll-

John the Conqueror is

Here's what People are Saying:
Time To Go, John the Conqueror
This raw, bluesy old-school soul track is just one of many gems on Philadelphia trio self-titled debut album.

''It’s all smokestacks, greasy ball bearings, mudslides, and corn liquor swilled from mason jars; raggedly scorching guitar riffs, a thunderous rhythm section, and howled vocals.''

"Power trio John the Conqueror has made a splash in Philly scene over the past year, dishing out a moving blend of blues, soul and rock n’ roll... The swaggery trio might be Philly’s answer to Gary Clark Jr."

"The trio from Mississippi, now based in Philly, have the smoothness of classic '50s soul mixed with a southern twang. Named after an African-American mythological folk legend, of whom the likes of Dr. John, Muddy Waters, and Willie Dixon have sung, the band possesses a magical power that empowers emotion."

​"They will bring you from the church to the juke joint in four quick minutes."
