"On Black Friday I Met Jesus"
"Music and Comics Interview"
Bio: No Depression calls John John Brown’s debut album The Road "a supple and suggestive blend of astute Americana accompanied by a quiet, reflective glow", while Americana Highways dubbed his newest release "A collection of well-crafted storytelling songs". Post to Wire noted that “John Prine is a clear influence in the way Brown rolls astute observations and a humorous slant into his lyrics”. Out on the road, John John was invited to perform at the 50th Anniversary of Woodstock at Bethel Woods, which is the original site of the legendary festival. Over the years, he has been chosen as a 2020 Kerrville New Folk winner, an Emerging Artist at the 2017 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, and a winner of the 2016 South Florida Folk Fest singer/songwriter contest. Seeped in good storytelling and fingerpicking melodies, John John Brown seems to have discovered part of the mystery that surrounds the great singer/songwriter tradition.
