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."
-WXPN’s THE KEY
"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."
