John E Vistic’s new album Welcome Down the Night is produced by Tristan Longworth (Jon Allen/The Third Degree). It is a beautifully crafted album of songs about ‘love, death and the landscape of the heart’. Recorded with a lush and sensitive dynamic utilising a wide range of instrumentation, the album features collaborations with a legendary range of artists including members of Primal Scream, Morcheeba, Jon Allen, the Marc Fordband and Rachel Stamp as well as Katey Brooks and the Vistic Rock N Roll Soundsystem. The first EP from the album, What Will Be (out on ITunes now) has been described as:
“…psychedelic country folk, laden with soul and thought provoking literary lyrics. Think Hozier and Johnny Cash meets The Doors with more than a dash of Jack White.” (Nurture Music)
As well as performing songs from the new album solo, Vistic has recently put together a new five piece incarnation of his band featuring Rob Norbury (Candy Darling) and Mike Crawford (Apache Dropout/The Various Sorrows) alongside longstanding Vistic Rock n Roll Soundsystem sidekicks, Guy Fowler (Bass) and Dan Clibery (Drums).
Recent press for John E Vistic has been fantastic:
A towering figure on the live circuit of London as well as his home city of Bristol (The Metro)
Gravelly vocals and powerful, swelling tunes that reach deep inside, all built on a foundation of rock solid musicianship (Louder Than war)
