The John Verity Band

The John Verity Band have already been very busy this year, including playing a fantastic set at Giants of Rock in Minehead in January and with dates booked at major venues coming up later in 2016, and into 2017. These include, amongst many others too numerous to list; The Stables at Wavendon, Milton Keynes; Robin 2, Wolverhampton; Wharf at Tavistock; Half Moon in Putney; Bowness Blues Festival, Blakeney Harbour Room, The Meeting Room at Elland and headlining at Reivers Rock and Blues Festival on Saturday 28th May.

There is a link below to John and the guys playing at HRH Blues at Sheffield 02 , the band went down a storm there on April 17th and these are quotes from two of the Sheffield audience:-

.’For me, John Verity Band were the highlight of the weekend. I didn’t know what to expect but they were awesome! And I am now a confirmed Verity fan! 😎’

‘I’m listening to John Verity today. I first saw him in Sheffield recently and was utterly stunned and gobsmacked just how good he is. This guy has the best style and touch – as a player he makes me tingle. I have to work out which of the gigs below I can get to. I might get to more than one!!! I sternly suggest to you all out there in FB land – miss this guy at your peril – you will regret it.’

John Verity releases My Religion album, “The Best Yet”.
“Quite simply the best thing I’ve done” says John (affectionately known as ‘JV’) when asked about his latest album, My Religion. The CD was released on March 19th 2016 at an event at Backstage at the Green Hotel, Kinross, Scotland. When you look at the breadth of JV’s career, then this must be something special.

The new album, My Religion, follows the 2015 best seller Tone Hound and uses many of the same crew to create a polished and relevant piece of work. On
the 10-track CD, (now also released on Vinyl), JV goes effortlessly from the tongue in cheek title track, through the more measured “Hope for the Best” and blues rocker “The Devil’s Music” to the poignant “Farkhunda” and the ethereal “Oh Why?” via a handful of classic blues tracks taken from JV’s live set.

The track-list spans classic blues and original numbers with disparate subjects and sentiments but JV holds them all together with his distinctive soulful blues edge . The result is an album that is perfectly paced, flawlessly produced and beautifully packaged, a testament to JV’s meticulous technique.

It is usual for artistes to declare their latest work their best, but at the very least, this is a definitive album for JV and in time, perhaps a classic.
We were also delighted to have a track played from ‘My Religion’ on BBC Radio 2-on Paul Jones ‘Nothing but the Blues‘ on May 23rd..
