His roots are firmly in the blues but over time Presley has nurtured his sound to be a hybrid of a few genres. His influences range from John Coltrane to Duke Gawood, Tom Waits to The Kills, Mogwai and Nick Cave, PJ Harvey, Daniel Lanois and more. With that in mind, it doesn’t fit into just one category. It is it’s own beast.
John plays guitar, pedalsteel, bass and horns. He has also played for Duke Garwood, Ed Harcourt and Smoke Fairies.
