It’s been far too long since the JWB site has been updated with a news post but rest assured idle hands have not been inactive. We have been playing a little catch up as rarely does musical creativity run to plan, often involving the schedules of others. Following the release of Firefly and Comfy Slippers and their corresponding videos, we at JWB are hard at work prepping the next instalment of our story. There has been some talk of a new album for the latter part of 2015 and though a date has not yet been set, this is to allow its release to happen when it is good and ready. In the mean time, there will be more activity to read up on from here on in, some JWB history and hints of what’s to come.
Here we are already feeling the first embers of spring and very pleased about that too! Videos for Firefly and Comfy Slippers are in the final stages of edit while the new album is being sketched out beat by beat in the studio in Brighton, well Hove Actually. The timeline of the year is already established leading to the new album release in September and suddenly it feels like there is a lot to do in a very short space of time. We like it this way, being busy with music is good and Johnny Wore Black is certainly busy.
I have been slow to update this site it seems social media is quite time consuming, have yet to be convinced of its value. I miss the humanity of the music biz of past years, before the internet was the law and kids used to get excited about going to buy vinyl that they would cherish, hold lovingly and explore the artwork on the cover. So what has been so far this year, well we are in the edit suite with videos for Firefly and Comfy Slippers, both tracks from Walking Underwater Pt.2. The new album is being written at the moment, tempted to let on about the title but will save that so you cant help but tune in here again soon. Its been about PR for Walking Underwater Pt.2 and digesting reviews and doing radio interviews. The year has started busy for Johnny Wore Black including some recording in Music City, Nashville Tennessee. More on that later.
