The Great Book of John


Not a lot is known about Birmingham, AL's The Great Book of John. The origin, status, and history of this band is often shrouded in mystery. However, what is known is the band began as a musical outlet for a fine fellow known as Taylor Shaw. The band was formed around early 2008 as overflow of Shaw's work in the band Wild Sweet Orange, in which he sang harmonies and played mean guitar lines. Shaw recruited the lovely Becca Fox to sing, the talented Chip Kilpatrick on drums, and the nimble Alex Mitchell on upright bass. Read more on Last.fm
Not a lot is known about Birmingham, AL's The Great Book of John. The origin, status, and history of this band is often shrouded in mystery. However, what is known is the band began as a musical outlet for a fine fellow known as Taylor Shaw. The band was formed around early 2008 as overflow of Shaw's work in the band Wild Sweet Orange, in which he sang harmonies and played mean guitar lines.

Shaw recruited the lovely Becca Fox to sing, the talented Chip Kilpatrick on drums, and the nimble Alex Mitchell on upright bass. In the summer of 2008, the band self-released their first full length titled Yves Blues. The music offers a different styling from that of Wild Sweet Orange. Each song has its different genetics, the songs have an Americana-soaked folk feel to them. The band occasionally began to play local shows when Wild Sweet Orange wasn't touring.

This pattern of activity continued for the next two years, and The Great Book of John soon became a musical staple of the Birmingham scene. In 2010, the band announced on Facebook that they were in the studio. A few months later, they released their self-titled debut, on the local label Communicating Vessels. The new, more electric sound like a really unique marriage of Wilco and Radiohead.

They are now currently on tour promoting the new material locally and nationally. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
