“…a ferocious, belly-deep sound, but somehow tender with it.” – The Guardian
“Such a unique sound.” Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 2

Brighton based multi-instrumentalist John J Presley returns in 2023 after a 3-year hiatus with a news of a new album Chaos & Calypso – coming through God Unknown Records on October 20th 2023.

The first cut to arrive from the long player is Sinnerman – a brooding, hypnotic track featuring a vocal collaboration from Blood Red Shoes singer and guitarist Laura-Mary Carter. It’s a slight shift in sound for Presley – with use of drum machines, synths and pedal steel too but still as ever possesses his trademark guitar tone which every guitar player watches open mouthed. Early support from 6 Music, Radio X, Bad Seed Jim Sclavunos and more confirm that Presley is back for the next chapter. The new album features more collaboration too – with The Invisible’s Tom Herbert on bass and Terry Edwards on horns (PJ Harvey).

After touring for most of the spring with Radiohead’s Philip Selway and Gaz Coombes – at the artists’ invitations, Presley is firming up the summer season with many more live dates to come. John J Presley writes music that can paint a thousand pictures. Soaring soundscapes, to instant future garage rock classics to meditative studies, his palette is huge. You can hear the inspiration: Coltrane, Mingus and Waits; The Kills to The Dirty Three. Presley’s playing sees him in demand too and has recently joined the line ups for Duke Garwood, Smoke Fairies, Nadine Shah, Laura-Mary Carter and Juanita Stein. https://johnjpresley.bandcamp.com/album/chao-calypso
