John Verity is perhaps still best known for his time as frontman in Argent from 1973 to 1976 after Russ Ballard recommended John as his replacement, noticing he would be a ‘good fit’ after seeing an early version of The John Verity Band supporting Argent whilst John was on the road promoting the first JV album. Prior to that he spent time working in the Bahamas and the US which culminated with prestige support slots for Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Mountain amongst others.

In 2015 John made a conscious decision to put his studio production duties, apart from his own recordings, to one side and concentrate more on live appearances with his band; a fluid line up from a selection of musicians which include Bob Skeat (Wishbone Ash) and our regular drummer Liam James Gray. John also works with other professional musicians of equal quality and talent, including our regular bass player Roger Inniss (Laurence Jones, Blues Caravan, Joanne Shaw-Taylor, Elkie Brooks, Ruby Turner amongst others) also John Gordon (Bernie Marsden, Alan Price and many more). The success of the ‘My Religion’ album culminated in an 80 date UK tour in 2017; following on from this the new release ‘Blue to my soul’, which is John’s most successful in recent years, is hitting the airwaves across the world and gaining rave reviews thus ensuring that John and the band will have an even busier 2018 !
