Each year, we invite the best unsigned artistes from all over the UK to audition for their chance to perform at Europe’s Best Blues Festival. This year, we were inundated with a large number of talented musicians all battling it out to win a slot at our Festival over the bank holiday weekend.
Since 2010, the auditions have been held in memory of Jessica Foxley, a talented musician who sadly lost her life. The Jessica Foxley Unsigned initiative has provided unsigned artistes with a springboard to propel their career and has welcomed some of the best in musical talent with a platform to get their music out on the biggest stage.
Johnny is a 20 year old blues harmonica player and singer from South Wales. Renowned for having an extremely mature voice in spite of his youth, Johnny is a true throwback to blues music of years gone by. Johnny has been playing for the last five years with various bands and acts but is now forging a reputation of his own.
Capable of playing acoustically and amplified, Johnny’s main styles are Chicago and West Coast blues.
