The Will Johns Band: Hooks & Lines


Catalogue number BEARCD52

Look at this list of great British guitar players: Eric Clapton, Peter Green, Mick Taylor, Mark Knopfler. You can now add another name to this list –  that name is Will Johns.

Will Johns is the complete package. Not only does he have a beautiful voice; he is also a greet songwriter and guitar player. Will Johns’ guitar playing has a lyrical sensibility and emotional depth that distinguishes all of the guitar players on that list. Will is the son of Andy Johns, the world-famous producer and engineer who worked on albums by Led Zeppelin and the Rolling Stones.

On this album Will Johns has done the production himself as well as all the arrangements. The sound of this album is a testimony to Will’s instinctive ability as a producer to hear and record the sound of a band in the studio.

As a charismatic performer, every Will John gig is unique unto itself. The man also has a sense of humour and never forgets that, when he’s on stage, he is there to entertain. I know you are going to enjoy this album and that you will also enjoy seeing Will perform live. If I didn’t know this, I wouldn’t be writing these notes.
