John J Presley is an electric bluesman;
a natural born storyteller.

Born in Birmingham he cut his cloth on the stages of the second city before taking his music to London and onto the road all across Europe.

After two hugely successful singles and EP release John has partnered with BMG and AWAL for his debut album.

“…a ferocious, belly-deep sound, but somehow tender with it.”

The Guardian

“…a beautiful noise that at once grips and beguiles, as befits a natural-born storyteller.”

The Quietus

“Loud, lascivious and raw”

Classic Rock’s The Blues Magazine

“A fuzzy, howly ‘new blues’ fest, with a touch of woozy psych for good measure.”

Classic Rock

“…a searing, soulful touch, an oasis of calm amid the torrent of noise”

The Times

“…packed with dirt and a palpable sense of menace”


“The bluesy rock ‘n’ rollers’ new track is a recklessly fuzzy garage tune.”

The Independent

“The chattering classes are silenced with musical brilliance.”

Team Rock

“Music needs a new dark lord…”
