Check it out, I'm really excited about it - it's something I've been meaning to do for years but not got around to. It's a great way to keep in touch with our fans during these crazy times and a way for me to keep solvent until things turn around, though it will of course be an ongoing project. Most of the stuff I'll be sharing via Backstage Passes will be exclusive. Live Videos, chats, recordings, tips and tricks, and opportunities to recommend material for recordings and the live show.
We've created a Private Facebook Group for doing exclusive live streams available only to those with a JV Backstage Pass. Time to build our own community!
I refuse to let this crisis get to me - come on, let's get together!!
'Blue to my Soul' is JV's 20th album since the 'Argent' days and finds John once again in the company of some great musicians, continuing along his chosen path of blues flavoured originals and covers. As ever, the music is powerful yet soulful, mixing UK style guitar blues influences with strong choruses, and lyrics bound to make you smile and perhaps even make you cry...
'Blue to my Soul' comprises six JV originals together with four covers, three of which are already in the JV Band live set, plus an acoustic version of Alabama Blues, featuring Max Milligan on guitar.
The rest of the album features: Steve Rodford or Liam James Gray on drums. Bob Skeat, Roger Inniss, John Gordon or Jamie Mallender on bass. Jamie Pipe, Bob Fridzema, or Ian Gibbons on keyboards. Bianca Kinane or Jayne Tretton on background vocals. The CD is recorded, mixed and mastered entirely at 101 Recorders, Cardington UK.
An amazing year!
We've had the pleasure to work with some amazing musicians again throughout 2016 - here's to more of the same as we approach an exciting New Year...
Here are some pics of the varying lineups - Longest serving first!!
My Old Mucker Mr Henrit. Over 40 years sharing the same stage/studio with many more to come - we hope!
We first worked together with Argent of course, then Phoenix and just about every JV recording since - including the Christmas CDs!
10 new tracks on the CD version - We listened to our friends and have, hopefully, delivered what you were asking for...
"Blue To My Soul is, an album that, as its title reinforces, plays from where John Verity’s musical heart and soul lie, but with a more varied menu that flits between full on blues, radio friendly hooks and a couple of stylistically different offerings." - Ross Muir FabricationsHQ
"It is rare to find music so complete, so perfectly layered and multi-faceted as that contained on this record." - Sunmouse Amazon Review
"John's guitar playing is a joy, whether it be soulful acoustic or driving amplified in style. What marks him out from others, to my ears at least, is his timing and feel which are close to perfection." - Peter H Amazon Review
"This album was clearly made with love, by a man with a voice from out of this world....and guitar playing that blows your mind!" - Temp20148 Amazon Review
