The Key Studio Sessions: John the Conqueror
After forming down south and cutting its teeth in the Atlanta music scene, John the Conqueror resettled in Philly last year and began kicking around town with its full-tilt electric blues boogie. Pierre Moore is a charismatic frontman, strutting the stage, ripping away at guitar licks and belting out dynamic vocals. Joining Moore are his cousin Michael Gardner, a force of nature on drums, and local guy Ryan Lynn, who brings a rumbling low end to the mix. The band’s debut self-titled long-player comes out on Alive Naturalsound Records on October 16, and on Friday it plays MilkBoy opening for Willis Earl Beal. Get a taste of the raw energy in store with the three tracks they recorded for our Key Studio Session.
