Son of John presents: “Lucky” Album Release Show on Friday, November 10th, 2023 at 7:00 pm at The Bailey Theatre
With songs that cut straight to heart, Son of John is an alternative Country Americana duo from right here in the Kootenays, British Columbia and they are proud to announce the release of their debut album.
Comprised of Javan Johnson, a singer/songwriter, but also a 4x BC Country Music Fiddle/Mandolin Player of the Year nominee, and Johnny P. Johnson, a seasoned solo artist with two recorded albums – “Prairie Roots” (BCCMA Album of the Year Nominee) and “Until You Get There”, songwriter, and singer from the former bands The Nerv and The Midnight Harvesters, Son of John & #39’s storytelling and rootsy sound on their brand new album – fiddle, mandolin, steel, banjos, dobros and harps – is a product of a family bond, father and son, making music together.
Son of John has been a 4x BC Country Music Association Gaylord Wood Traditional Country/Roots Artist of the Year nominee and has appeared at multiple venues across Western Canada. They released their debut single Country Pure in June 2019, and have released three more singles since, each with its own music video.
The self- directed “Better Than That” music video scored Javan a Video Director of the Year nomination at the 2020 BC Country Music Awards. In early 2021, Son of John released their third single, Lonely Door, that was featured in The Bluegrass Situation, a popular US Americana publication. Their latest single, “Put Your Hands Up” was released in August 2022 with a video filmed close to home in the Village of Midway, BC. Influenced by Blue Rodeo, Neil Young, and Gordon Lightfoot, Johnny P. Johnson, as primary songwriter, tells stories about love, life and loss, capturing real feelings through the lens of the characters in his songs.
Son of John will be performing new and familiar songs from their debut album, “Lucky,” produced by John Ellis (Doc Walker, George Canyon, Ridley Bent, Leeroy Stager, Colin James, Be Good Tanyas) with a full band consisting of Jason Thomas (Trail) on guitar, banjo, and slide, Hal Rezansoff (Slocan Valley) on stand up bass, and Don Walker (Nelson) on drums with an opening act by Johnny D. Johnson.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Trail Hospice Society.
