The Johnny Fury Band Live at the Half Moon, London
The Johnny Fury Band
Entry Requirements: 18+ after 7pm
The Johnny Fury Band never fails to entertain audiences with their refreshing combination of rock, soul, and blues styles.
No matter what kind of guitar lands in his hands, the Texas bluesman always makes it sing. Add in his vocal and songwriting skills, and he's a triple-threat talent.
On Johnny Fury II (released 2018), Fury shows his prowess in soul and rock as well as blues, with a smooth, well-nuanced tenor capable of delivering splintering blues and affecting ballads with equal finesse. In September 2018, he opened for Grammy Award Winning Blues icon Buddy Guy in Columbus, Ohio.
He's already impressed industry critics too. Fury was a finalist in the 2014 Jimi Hendrix Guitar Competition and a 2016 semi-finalist in the New York-based International Songwriting Competition.
Fury's influences include Marvin Gaye, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and Wilson Pickett. Combining blues traditions with his fresh outlook, Fury creates music that could easily take its place alongside his heroes. And someday, it very likely will.
Quote: "If you are a fan of blues music and looking for something with a unique twist, Johnny Fury II is guaranteed to please." - Jan Sikes (Buddy Magazine)
"I wanted an album that was rooted in the blues. There’s a mix of jazz, soul, and rock influence. I included a couple songs with social commentary and political themes. I wanted to give people songs that have a message. I also wrote songs that people could really dance and jam out to. So there’s something for everyone." - Johnny Fury (from his interview with the Daily Country)
'Johnny Fury wraps up his new album with the funky blues of "Arizona Women" and the guitar driven rock of "Blue Sunrise" as he closes the album on a powerful high.' - (JP's Music Blog)
