“John J. Presley..a searing, soulful touch…an oasis of calm amid the torrent of noise”– The Times
John J. Presley takes his electrified blues to explosive levels in brand new single ‘Honeybee‘, due for release October 20th via Killing Moon.
Following in the dirty footsteps of his riff-ridden debut single, ‘Left’, is ‘Honeybee’, which see’s John J. Presley harness the saturated fuzz of Jack White, the unrelenting momentum of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and the whiskey soaked vocal howl of a certain Mr Waits.
‘Honeybee’ was recorded in the short time between playing the highly regarded BBC Introducing Stage at Reading and Leeds , and has just completed support on the last tour from The Jim Jones Revue through Europe.
Growing up with a distinguished record collection at his disposal and a penchant for vintage guitars, John J. Presley has honed his distinctive blues sound from an early age, citing the likes of Tom Waits, Duke Garwood and PJ Harvey as his personal influences alongside the soundscapes of Archie Bronson Outfit and early Black Keys too.
