John E Vistic Biography (Wikipedia)
John E Vistic is a Bristol, England based singer-songwriter, and the lead singer and guitarist for the band of the same name.
Vistic's new album Welcome Down the Night (July 2016), produced by Tristan Longworth ( Jon Allen/The Third Degree) is about ‘love, death and the landscape of the heart’. It features collaborations with members of Primal Scream, Morcheeba, Jon Allen, the Marc Ford band and Rachel Stamp as well as Katey Brooks and Vistic's own band the John E Vistic Rock N Roll Soundsystem.
The first EP from the album, What Will Be, has been described as: "…psychedelic country folk, laden with soul and thought provoking literary lyrics. Think Hozier and Johnny Cash meets The Doors with more than a dash of Jack White."
The EP, as well as the single Song for the Old Men taken from the new album, have received airplay on several radio stations including BBC Radio 6, BBC Bristol, BBC London, Radio Caroline and Rock UK
As well as performing songs from Welcome Down the Night solo, Vistic has put together a new five piece featuring Rob Norbury (Candy Darling) and Mike Crawford (Apache Dropout/The Various Sorrows) alongside longstanding Vistic Rock n Roll Soundsystem members, Guy Fowler (Bass) and Dan Clibery (Drums).
