Dustbowl Blues with a Glasgow Kick John Alexander started out as a classical guitarist before his love of blues and country music got the better of him. Alexander’s musical journey has seen him disappearing for several years from the Northern Hemisphere to the sunnier climate of New Zealand. Basing himself in Christchurch in the South Island John followed various musical pursuits in the local music scene. These circles lead to John gaining vast live experience where he performed at what seemed like every bar, barn and outhouse in The South Island.

After recording his debut Album ‘Waiting for Now’ with local artists, John upped roots and returned to his hometown of Glasgow. Life in his native country as well as experiences of living in New Zealand and travel throughout the USA form much of the inspiration behind his songs. Influences ranging from the likes of Muddy Waters, Robert Johnson, Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, John Martyn, to Kelly Joe Phelps, Greg Brown and The John Butler Trio, are evident in the soulful lyrics and strong guitar riffs in his songs. Alexander’s performing schedule has seen him open for Newton Faulkner, Karine Polwart, Martin Simpson & Johnny Dickinson and several US based songwriters including Grammy nominee Darrell Scott as well as appearances at Celtic Connections. Alexander’s previous releases have been well received and new album ‘Rain For Sale’ looks set to continue making new ground. Read more on Last.fm.
