John The Conqueror – John The Conqueror

  • November 7, 2012

John The Conqueror is a Philly based band comprised of Mississippi natives and cousins Pierre Moore (vocals, guitar) and Michael Gardner (drums) along with local bassist Ryan Lynn. Their self-titled debut album draws from many sounds and styles, mixing raw blues with funk, soul and reverb soaked rock-n-roll. Standouts include the reverb laden southern blues tracks “Southern Boy” and “All Alone”, the Chuck Berry-like “Lucille” which recounts the wicked ways of women, and the boozy song of seduction, “Come Home With Me.” John The Conqueror has released a solid debut that’s steeped Mississippi Delta, juke joints and a penchant for vintage soul. – Written by JFelton
