With a slew of larger-than-life projects under his belt —John E Vistic is something of a Bristol household name. (Bristol Live)
John E Vistic is a singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, also known for his work with- post rock band Crippled Black Phoenix. His forthcoming solo album Welcome Down the Night produced by Tristan Longworth (Jon Allen/The Third Degree) is a beautifully crafted album of songs about love, death and the landscape of the heart. The record features collaborations with a legendary range of artists including members of Primal Scream, Morcheeba, Jon Allen, the Marc Ford band and Rachel Stamp as well as Vistic’s own band. 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.”
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/Portishead) as well as long standing Vistic Rock n Roll Soundsystem sidekicks, Guy Fowler (Bass) and Dan Clibery (Drums).
Recent press for John E Vistic has been fantastic:
A touring figure on the live circuit of London as well as his home city of Bristol (Metro)
Gravelly vocals and powerful, swelling tunes that reach deep inside, all built on a foundation of rock solid musicianship (Louder Than war)
Bloody Brilliant (Toxic Online)
The new EP has already received airplay on BBC Radio 6, BBC Bristol, BBC London, Radio Caroline, Rock Radio UK and many more. The album is out soon.
