John J Presley
saturday - main-stage
Growing up in the West Midlands, this was where began to play and tread the boards in various line ups before stepping out directly under his own name. Citing influences from Son House to Mogwai, Alice Coltrane to Nick Cave; The Dirty Three to Duke Garwood, he has developed his own unique sound and forged his own path. Tone, valve amps and pedals are his penchant - an area he now works in at a professional level when not on the road or in the studio.
His approach to challenging genre limitations has put his trademark skills in high demand, notably serving as long standing live guitarist for Duke Garwood (Heavenly Records) and on occasion for Ed Harcourt's live show too. Whilst playing with Duke, John has shared stages with Mark Lanegan, Seasick Steve, Afghan Whigs and The Smoke Fairies.
He released his debut album As The Night Draws In in January 2019.
