"Hang Dog Days", le 1er Album est plutôt folk, intimiste.


"Shed" et "Love Your Skin" ont des couleurs blues country.


"Shake the Tree" est un retour aux sources pop... et le petit dernier s'appelle True Belief.

Mais qui n'est pas mieux placé que John lui-même pour parler de ses albums...


"True Belief"

Ma dernière passion. Je craque pour celui-ci. mon idée de la musique pop de nos jours.Laissez vos bottes à l'entrée et appréciez-le. Les guitares sont plus ou moins accordées et les chansons sont parmi mes meilleures...



  " Kill the Monster"

Faites gaffe à celui-ci! C'est mon idée de ce qu'est le musique électronique avec un orgue, une boîte à rythme, la voix et des percussions (pas un instrument sur ce disque n'a couté plus de £40).



"Shake The Tree"

Un retour à mes racines pop, avec un zeste du genre électrique moderne, ma plus grande production jusqu'ici.



"Love Your Skin"

"Love Your Skin" : toujours en train de marteler sur le batterie façon blues.

Il y a un hommage à    hank Williams (qui me botte bien).




Pas mal sexy, celui-ci, et beau à regarder.



"Hang Dog Days"

Premier album. C'est style blues, d'inspiration folklorique, une histoire

de Blanc à Noir.



On Sunday 20 th may : end of the meeting, people will take their time to go back home safely.
